WET Last Day of School
Friday, June 16, 2017
During our February Vacation, several students from grades 3-8 participated in the Acceleration Academy. Students attended school everyday during their vacation from 7:30 - 3:00. They attended classes to help increase proficiency in ELA. In addition to academic classes students participated in art and physical education. Feedback from students was overwhelmingly positive. They enjoyed the small class size and innotative curriculum.
"I am so grateful that I got picked to go to the Academy, I know I am going to be a better student," said Nathan Suero (grade 5).
"I had an all-around good time and great learning experience with my educators," said Diego Ortega (grade 6). "I would love to attend the April Math Academy to extend my math knowledge and fix weak spots in my math knowledge," he continuted.
More than 350 students and family members from the Wetherbee School took part in some "Mad Science" recently. Science coach Jocelyn Petrosino and the Middle School Science teachers planned the event to increase Science awareness for families to help them understand the importance of science for their children.
LPS students who scored in the top 99 for Student Growth Percentile on the MCAS were recognized by the School Committee since their test scores over the past year were as good or better than 99% of their peers.
Congratulations to Alan Toribio, Business Management and Finance High School, Kiahvette Guzman and Edward Ramos from the Wetherbee School!
Each received an award for "outstanding achievement on 2012-2013 MCAS testing".
