Welcome to Fall!!
Since the start of the school year we have been extremely busy within our learning community. Classrooms and buildings are abuzz with academic chatter as students are engaged with daily lessons. This year we utilized an assessment known as MAP (Measured Academic Progress) for students in grades K-6 to determine students’ academic levels. This will assure that teachers will have the pertinent information needed to guide their instruction.
Faculty and staff at the high school has been preparing for a visit from the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC) for over 18 months. The visit will take place on September 27 – 30. We are extremely excited to host the association as we showcase our high school for reaccreditation!
Our fall sports teams are fully engaged in practices and games with over 100 student athletes taking part! All athletic schedules can be found on our website. Please click on the “Athletics” icon and go to “MIAA Ware Public Schools Athletic Calendar”, then pick the sport schedule you are seeking and click on “Show Schedule.” As the weather continues to provide us with warm weather take in a game or two and cheer on your favorite team or student athlete! We are proud of our student athletes representing us on the football field, soccer field, and volleyball court! GO WARE!!
For the first time ever the Superintendent is learning to Tweet! You can find the Ware Public Schools Twitter tread on the district website. Follow us through Twitter as I try to share with you activities that are going on within our learning community. Please follow us throughout the school year.
In coordination with the Ware Police Department and the Town of Ware our school district has been awarded the COPS (Community Oriented Policing Services) grant from the Department of Justice. This grant will afford Ware Public Schools the capacity to have a School Resource Officer (SRO) on campus. Special thanks go out to our Director of Accountability, Jan Yardley, who worked endlessly in writing the grant. We look forward to welcoming our SRO to campus!
