Wampatuck Fall Festival
I want to take this opportunity to thank the PTO for hosting the Wampatuck Fall Festival. This was a wonderful Wampatuck community event that included hay rides, trunk or treat cars, a blow up corn maze, games, crafts, and food. It was attended by well over 300 people and took place on a picture perfect fall evening. We look forward to more events like this in the future.

New This Year: Family Engagement Pilot Program
Under this pilot program, twice yearly parent conferences will be replaced with weekly times when educators are actively engaging with parents and caregivers and/or offering additional student support.

The PTO Boosterthon fundraiser is in full swing. This week Team Leader Anna Banana has been showing videos and talking with all students during lunches on the importance of Gratitude, Stewardship, Bravery, Perseverance, and Wonder. Students are learning these lessons as they go on a Grand Land Adventure through the US National Parks.
Our culminating activity will be a school wide Fun Run held on Monday November 7, 2022.
The money raised during this event will be used to fund enrichment and field trip activities for all Wampatuck/ECC students. Thank you for your support and donations.

Wampatuck and ECC students and staff enjoyed dressing up as their favorite book characters on Monday October 31, 2022. The day was filled with book talks, character comparisons, photos, and fall festival games and crafts. Thank you to all staff and parent volunteers who helped make this day fun for all our students.

As many of you may know, lunch bunches are a time for our counseling support staff and teachers to work in small groups with your amazing children. We often work on emotional needs as well as building social skills. Sometimes these groups can consist of 2 children, and sometimes up to 10. If you do not feel comfortable with your child being pulled for a small group please email Miss Carr at Carr@scit.org as well as Mrs. Edgren at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you!
