Weekly Bulletin

At School
We are very fortunate to have some school traditions at Francis Wyman that  have continued through the years.  Our Kindergarten classes give us an outstanding Nutcracker performance every December, and it's quite fun for all students to look back fondly at the dances and songs they performed. Thank you K teachers for continuing this festive tradition year after year. Happy Holidays to everyone!  Have an enjoyable and restful vacation. See you on January 2, 2014!

Around Town
The Burlington Baseball Softball Association is now accepting online registrations for Spring baseball and softball.  We are also looking for coaches.  Anyone interested in coaching should fill out an online application and must have a current CORI with the BBSA.  Please go to for more information and to register.  A discount is offered for early registrations.  We look forward to seeing you at Opening Day in April

Winter Procedures

Winter is really here in full force as the ice and snow is now upon us! I would like parents to know about the winter procedures for morning drop-off and afternoon student pick-up. If the sidewalks are icy or too snowy in the morning, we will have students enter the building through the gym. Students who are being picked up at the end of the day will be dismissed through the kindergarten doors as the parking lot area can be too icy or snowy for anyone to walk on. These winter procedures will be in place until further notice as we will not return to dismissal though the cafeteria until the weather is better.
