Students in Grade 4-6 participated in the ELA MCAS over the past two weeks. They worked extremely hard and should be commended for their perseverance and determination. I'm so proud of their efforts. Great job boys and girls!

New Redcat FM Systems Installed
In December, WEST provided us with a grant to purchase 4 new FM systems to be used in special subject classrooms including Music, Art , Library and Health. We received and installed them last week. The Redcat FM systems not only help students with hearing loss, but those with fluctuating loss due to colds, allergies, etc... as well as auditory processing difficulties. They allow the teacher’s voice to be heard above background noise and are very beneficial to all the students. We would like to once again thank WEST for their generosity and support of the Wrentham Public Schools.
WOW!!! Thank you to all who participated in the Pennies for Pitman challenge. Students in grades K-6 dug into their banks and wallets and brought in a total of $1,311.67 to support Mrs. Pitman as she participates in Dancing with the Stars on behalf of the Wrentham PTO. The competition was fierce as students filled their grade level jars silver coins and contributed pennies and paper bills to other grades to deduct from their totals. In the end, grade 6 came out on top. Congratulations to all and thank you for supporting this great cause.
