November PTO Updates.pdf

A warm welcome to all of our new & returning Wampatuck Students, Families, and Teachers!
We're just getting started...
Throughout the year, our PTO organizes events and activities to help bring the community together and to celebrate all of our amazing kids! We welcomed our teachers back with a parent-supported potluck luncheon. Thank you to everyone who contributed, and to Courtney Johnson for coordinating.

Please add these important dates to your calendar:
Walk to School Day: Oct 2. Students that don't usually walk can meet in the Egypt Beach Parking lot by 8:10am and walk as a group.

PTO Meeting: PTO Meetings this year will be held via Zoom. Families will receive an email with the link to attend. Oct 1st @ 7pm. is our first PTO meeting of the year. Principal Riordan will be attending and providing an overview and answer questions. These meetings are informational, relaxed, and open discussion is encouraged. While there's no obligation to volunteer, many hands make light work, so please consider volunteering. Even just a couple of hours throughout the year makes a difference and really helps all of our kids!

Picture Day: has been postponed until the spring. We will notify you when a new date has been scheduled. 
Directory Opt-Out: October 9th. See below for details.
In addition to hosting super-fantastic fun events, Wampatuck's PTO helps keep parents on top of school happenings, and plans fundraisers which directly benefit our students and teachers.
PTO fundraising & volunteerism supports the following:
* Planning enrichment programs across all grades, including visits from New England Aquarium, South Shore Natural Science Center, Bubbleology (the science of bubbles!), and more.
* Providing funds to our teachers to help them purchase additional materials & supplies to enhance their curriculums.
* Running our Fall & Spring Scholastic Book Fair to promote reading among all of our Wampatuck kids. Kids love to shop for books!
* Investment in our new Outdoor Classroom which provides a new & unique educational space.
* Support for our beautiful Organic Garden, which provides fun in-class learning experiences for our students through our partnership with Holly Hill Farm (not to mention, plenty of delicious raspberries and veggies.
We look forward to seeing all of our returning families and meeting everyone new joining Wampatuck this year! If you have any questions we're happy to help -- you can email us individually or at
Thanks and best wishes for a great year!
