Posted on 02/14/2020

Thank you to Mrs. Mindick, her student volunteers and all the parents who helped to put on an outstanding week of Flavors from Around the World. The students really enjoyed the food, music and online contest. Our cafeteria staff went out of their way to prepare creative meals for our students and staff, some of the menu items included Teriyaki Chicken, Egg Rolls, Cuban Panini, Burritos and more. We are happy to report that some of these items sold out and, due to their popularity, will be included in the regular lunch rotation.

The Williams is doing a special volleyball tournament to sponsor the American Heart Association. All 6th grade students have the option to participate on Wednesday, February 26th from 3:00 until 4:30. Teams of up to 8 players will need to bring in $40.00 in donations.
 

Message from our PE and Health Staff:

"Attention 6th graders! Remember to spend time during winter break raising money for the American Heart Association. If you are participating in the volleyball tournament, please have all money, permission slips, and donation forms turned into Miss V by Monday February 24. If you are not interested in the tournament but still would like to raise money for the American Heart Association, please stop by the gym and get a donation form. All donation money is due February 24." 

Thank you to the Friends of Williams for supporting our 6th grade Brain Show this past Thursday. This is a faced paced, fun game show that our students have enjoy for many years. It’s a great way for students to test their knowledge, show their competitive edge and laugh.

Once again our music department has put on an outstanding show for our students. On Friday the Chorus and Band performed two concerts for WIS students. It is impressive how far they have come since the start of the year. Thank you to Mr. Kirinsky, Mrs. Pires and Mr. Robichaud for bringing their talent and enthusiasm to our students.


In celebration of Black History Month the Sapphire Team students will be doing projects on famous black STEM innovators and leaders. Please ask your child about their research.

Art Sale - Success! After hearing about the Australian Wildfires and the devastation they have created in Australia, The Red Team 6th graders decided to take action and see if they could help. In the Art Studio students worked with their Art Teacher, Mrs. Gaspardi to create acrylic portraits on canvas of animals native to Australia. In Science class with Mrs. Collins students researched their chosen animal and wrote a short report on that animal. Once these were finished the report was attached to the back of the painting. We are pleased to announce that every single painting was sold!  Thank you for supporting their efforts!
