Drop Off
We are almost there!  As you start thinking about packing, please refer to the packing list in the tabs above.  Students do not need to arrive at WMS on Wednesday, May 24th, any earlier.  If you wish to drop your child off (just to squeeze in one last hug goodbye, or because they need help carrying their bags:-), you may do so around 7:30.  Buses depart the Middle School at around 8:00.  

Pick Up

If you plan to stay on the Cape for Memorial Day weekend and you would like to pick your child up on the Cape, before we head back to WMS, please email or contact your child's bus leader or HR teacher with the following info:
  • Child's name
  • Name of adult who will be picking him/her up and relationship to your child
The pick up location on the Cape is Town Neck Beach on Wood Ave. in Sandwich.  We ask that the pick up person be there between 1:15 and 1:30.  

Otherwise, please be sure to pick your child up at WMS at 4:00 on Friday, May 26th.  Trust us, they will be so eager to see you:-)

Cape Cod Final Project & Mixbook

As we prepare to embark on our trip, students are beginning to hear about and think about their final CC project.  In short, each student will put together the story of their trip through either a scrapbook or an online scrapbook.  Other ideas are welcomed -- but they need to be discussed with and approved by a bus leader.  Each project will include an introduction, journal entries, pictures with captions, and a conclusion.  

For students who opt to do an online scrapbook, we ask them to use Mixbook.  Of course, students will need permission from parents and guardians to use this online tool.  We will be sending paper copies home with students who express interest in Mixbook, and you can also access the permission slip here.  Within the permission slip are links to the Privacy Policy and Terms of Use.
