National Poem in Your Pocket Day is observed each April. This day was created to share the joy that poems bring by carrying one in your pocket and sharing it throughout the day with others. Across the country, businesses, libraries, schools and individuals have shared a poem on National Poem in Your Pocket Day.
Memorizing , reciting and dramatizing poems is a fun way to develop literacy skills! Consider your child's age and use the following resource to celebrate poetry together, https://www.poetryfoundation.org/learn/children. Consider writing poetry together and listening to poems your child writes, too.
Families with children using the Family Health School Based Health Clinics should call the Family Health Center at: 508-860-7779.
The Worcester Public Schools asks that you update your contact information. We are updating our records so that we can reach out to you with updates and school information. Please fill out the contact form
Also please download our new mobile app, you will receive push notifications and have quick access to many of our most commonly used services.
As part of the Worcester Public Schools, WFP playgroups will be closed until at least 4/6, in an effort to prevent community spread of the virus.
Please do what you can to take care of yourselves during this time. This is a new world for all of us and the change is stressful. Please do not feel any pressure from us to do more with your children at this time. Keeping your normal routines as much as possible (as crazy as that sounds right now) is as much (or more) than most of us can do right now. Be gentle with yourself as you and your family figure this out together; most of us have never been in this situation before.
There are links attached with some activities for children and we will be trying to continually post updates on Facebook as it becomes available. Feel free to use this, or not use this as is helpful to you. We are trying to provide resources, but it is easy to get overwhelmed. Statewide information is available through this link: https://www.mass.gov/lis
Again, feel free to ignore information that is not helpful to you at this time.
If you have ideas of ways WFP could be helpful during this time, please feel free to reach out. As the office is closed, the best way to reach us currently is email: vietze@worcesterschools
