Wetherbee Events

Mrs. Briody's students show off their new shoes from New Balance.

The lucky students in Ms. Briody's third grade class were recently the recipients of the annual New Balance Gives Back school campaign, so every student received a new pair of sneakers! Congratulations third graders!

Santa at the Wetherbee on December 1

On Saturday, December 1, the Wetherbee School held their annual Breakfast with Santa gathering, and it was a great success! Families spent time together enjoying breakfast, then while doing arts and crafts activities, and of course while waiting for the main event -- SANTA! What's better -- sitting on Santa's lap and telling him what you want for Christmas, or all of the raffle and CAKE prizes that the lucky families got to bring home?! We'll let them decide!

Wetherbee sixth graders pose with hockey legend Bob Sweeney of the Boston Bruins.

On Friday, October 26, representatives from the NHL Bruins organization came to the Wetherbee School to see the work that the sixth graders have been doing with the Hockey Scholars STEM program, an online series of courses designed to increase student interest in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math. Special guest Bob Sweeney, a native of Massachusetts and a Boston Bruins hockey player from 1986-1992, made a special appearance to give the kids some advice about life, a career in sports, and how to pick just the right flex on your hockey stick! A great time was had by all in attendance.

Wetherbee Grade 4 students perform on stage with cast members from "In Good Company"

On Friday, November 2, the fourth grade at the Wetherbee School were visited by "In Good Company," a traveling musical theater group that works to teach students across eastern Massachusetts about the historical events that have shaped our nation. Grade 4 students were part of the cast and worked with the company prior to the stage performance to learn the music, practice the script, and rehearse their roles for the stage performance of this presentation about the immigrant experience in the United States. Teachers and parents report that the show was a hit!

Wetherbee Principal Lennon and other staff members welcomed families for a community dinner event.

Early in October, the Wetherbee School hosted a pasta dinner for families to show solidarity and support to families affected by the recent gas crisis. Parents and students were welcomed with an abundance of dinner, dessert, games to be played, and raffles to be won. Thanks to all who made donations, as well as the families and staff that attended, it was a great night to relax and spend time with members of the Wetherbee community.
