A Message from Mrs. Wissemann

February 8, 2018                 

Dear Families,

I hope you are staying warm! Spring will be here before you know it! Many of the students have shared with me how much fun they are having at Oysterponds School this year and how quickly the school year is going. I agree!

Thank you so much to Coach K. for organizing Wednesday night's Trivia Night. There was a Dad's Team, a Mom's Team and many teams made up of Oysterponds students. It really looked like the Dad's were going to win the first place medal, but they just couldn't seem to answer all of the questions asked by Coach. I was very impressed with how well the students did in answering the questions. I look forward to next month's Trivia Night! I hope you and your family will join us!

Today I had the opportunity to tag along with Primary 2 and Intermediate 2 on their field trip to the Parish Art Museum in Watermill. If you have the opportunity to visit, I highly recommend that you do. The artwork produced by the local area schools was just amazing.  I was extremely proud of our students manners while touring the exhibits in each room. They asked thoughtful questions about the artwork and engaged in insightful "art talk" with the museums volunteers. Well done!

Have a wonderful rest of your week. As always, please call or email me with any questions or concerns!

Best,

Mrs.  Wissemann
