Francis Wyman Teachers Recognized with BEF Star Awards!
Four teachers were nominated by parents/students to receive STAR awards for making a difference each day.  This year the awards were presented to Mrs. Maiorana, Mrs. Zani, Mrs. Lynch, and Mrs. Stromski.  Thank-you to the families for recognizing their efforts and as always, I am grateful for their dedication and the commitment of all our teachers/staff here at Francis Wyman that makes our school a special place to learn and grow.

Last day of school, 
June 23, 2015:

Dismissal on Tuesday (1/2 Day of School)       11:15am
No lunches will be served.

Mrs. Lynch's class creates an Air Conditioner!  

Inventors & engineers of the future!
Francis Wyman students enjoyed a fun-filled day of relay races, tug-of-war, and dunk tank excitement thanks to the efforts of Mr. Magee, Mr. Rebelo and the numerous parent volunteers who helped make the day a huge success!  All classes worked hard to earn enough "gold" pirate coins to earn the dunk tank at the event and students enjoyed dunking Mrs. McDonald and all the teachers/counselors who volunteered to "walk the plank" and take a plunge for a fun cause. 
Thank-you again to the PTO and all volunteers who helped make Field Day a yearly favorite.

Calling all children entering kindergarten at Francis Wyman this fall!  Please join us on Sunday,  June 21 from 4:00-5:00 pm for a laid-back, friendly play-date at the Francis Wyman school playground as part of monthly Pre-K socials being organized by Burlington Mother-to-Mother.  The socials are free and open to all incoming kindergarteners.  This is a great way for kids (and parents) to get to know each other and the school environment.  Please rsvp with both your name and your child's name to Sharleen Davis at  Hope you can join us!

Don't forget it's Dress Like a Pirate Day on Tuesday, June 23, 2015 as part of our last day celebration.  The students will participate in our final CARES assembly which will recognize and celebrate our amazing Francis Wyman School community.
Please enjoy a safe, relaxing summer!

Thanks again to our fabulous music staff, Mrs. Peabody, Ms. Potts, and Ms. Berger for a wonderful spring concert.  It was great to see the third grade students learning new instruments including the recorder and violin.  Second and third graders were proud to sing and play their patriotic songs, and we are very proud of them for a job well-done!
