Character Dress Up Day
The Wampatuck community enjoyed a day of dressing up as their favorite book character on October 31, 2023. It was a wonderful way to celebrate literacy and all of our young readers.
High School Speakers
Wampatuck was blessed to have three high school students come and speak to our 4th and 5th grade scholars on kindness and responsibility. Two of the three speakers were former Wampatuck students which is always a privilege to welcome them back. All three spoke about their educational journey and how they have grown into responsible students and how kindness has positively impacted their lives.
