Smartwatches In School

If your student has a smartwatch, please be sure that you discuss the following to ensure that your child can fully engage in school activities:

  1. use watches in school for telling time (not texting, calls, etc)
  2. ensure that you respect privacy by not recording other

Celebrate With Books

The Wampatuck PTO sponsors our Celebrate with a Book program as a way to get new books for our library.  Caregivers and families are invited to purchase a book through the PTO which is then donated to the library in honor of a birthday or a celebration.  A nameplate is placed in the book with the students/family name and a picture is taken with the student holding the  book.  Pictures are displayed on the library windows and the book is available for circulation. This year we have had eleven families donate books in their child’s name.  They are: Tessa Leahy, J.P. Quigley, Paige Murphy, Parker Berthiaume, Emery Donovan, Lennon Blythe, Keegan Brighton, Colin Murphy, Charlotte Nangle, and Kyle Turcotte.  Thank you to these families for supporting the Wampatuck library.

Ice Cream

Ice cream Fridays are coming back to Wampatuck! This treat was suspended during COVID but two 4th grade students, Sadie Shepard and Carrie Commerford, have spearheaded a campaign to bring back ice cream.  The two girls wrote and delivered  a persuasive letter to Mrs. Riordan along with a petition signed by forty eight students/staff in support of having ice cream available on Fridays.  Carrie and Sadie met with Mrs. Riordan and discussed the proposal. Mrs. Riordan then met with Rose Gratta, Kitchen Manager, and a plan was drafted.  

Ice cream will be served on Fridays starting February 3, 2023.

  • Ice cream will cost $1.00.
  • Students can pay with money from their account (preferred) or with cash.

Thank you to Carrie and Sadie for being the voice of Wampatuck and advocating for Ice Cream Fridays!

Scituate Friends of Music Fundraiser

The Scituate Friends of Music will be hosting an Open Mic Fundraiser at the end of January. Mr. Mundt will be hosting this event at The Oro Restaurant on Sunday, January 29th from 4:30-7:30 pm. We are hoping for participation from elementary, middle and high school students. Students can sign up using the Sign Up Genius link in this newsletter. Students might play a short piece on an instrument or sing a song!  Mr. Mundt is available  to accompany any student on guitar if they would like to sing a song that they have learned in school (like the Wednesday Open Mics at The Voyage). Please reach out with any questions. Thanks for your support.
