Weekly Bulletin March 13, 2015

And the Francis Wyman Students get their wish!  Today Mrs. McDonald died her hair PURPLE to reward the students for  excellent behavior!  Over the last few weeks, we've had a purple CARES coupon collection.  If the students were seen exhibiting excellent behavior by a teacher other than their own homeroom teacher, they were rewarded a purple CARES coupon.  These coupons have been collected in our very special treasure box and tallied this week.  Our students reached 100 coupons yesterday!  Way to go FW!  See you at the Carnival tomorrow! 10am - 2pm 

Here's Mrs. McDonald PRE-PURPLE HAIR... 

Fourth grade boys get a hearty laugh!

Recess FUN!

Out and about at school...
