From the Nurse's Office:
Just a friendly reminder that it is the time of year that you should be checking your child’s head for lice. It is not uncommon to see lice at this time of year, and parental head checks are strongly encouraged. Our District’s Lice Procedures/Protocol can be found in the link below. Please refer to the bottom of the policy for plenty of education on lice. If you have any questions, concerns, or need support, please feel free to contact the Nurse’s Office.
Thank you to the BHS cheerleading squad for taking the time out of their busy schedules to share their talents, offer advice, and perform for FW at our SOAR assembly this morning.
A talented group of enthusiastic young ladies - many of whom were proud Francis Wyman alumni! We are so proud of all of you.
Congratulations to these 5th grade students who submitted award winning "spooky" stories with 100 words or less and were recognized for their outstanding writing skills! I predict we will have many published writers in our future.
Congratulations to our "FIT GIRLS" club that met twice per week to learn about nutrition and good health while also spending time running together. Good luck to all of you at this weekend's 5K road race - you are amazing young ladies!
