Exciting Things Happening at Nayatt!
Nayatt Road Improvement Project.
Message is from the Rhode Island Department of Transportation:
Nayatt Update Week of December 3, 2018
Work on raising the sewer manhole covers will continue from approximately Washington Road to Bay Road. Drainage work may also be conducted in the vicinity of the golf course. The work will require alternating one-way traffic from 7:00 am to 3:30 pm at various points along the work zone. Motorists should drive slowly and be alert for the flaggers and police details. As a reminder, please be aware that the asphalt base layer for the roadway has been completed for the winter and we anticipate installing the new asphalt surface layer next season for the entire alignment from Washington Road to Rumstick Road.

Dear Wiz Families,
We are making great progress! Well done to the kids who have been working on their lines at home, it really shows and helps when we put the scenes together.
REMEMBER, IF YOU ARE NOT CALLED TO REHEARSAL, SPEND TIME AT HOME REVIEWING YOUR LINES :)
Remember, no scripts will be held so use the break to learn lines and songs. We will also be posting choreography videos so kids can polish up on those dances at home!
The The Wizard of Oz Production Team:
Dena, Michelle, Jen, Kimmy, & Sara
How can I help my child prepare?
Run lines with them & practice their songs!
Make sure they are taking notes in their scripts with regards where they enter/exit and any blocking! This will help them remember!
Some additional important notes:
Please carefully review the Rehearsal Schedule and make a note of when your child will be called to rehearsal. (Note individual names are alpha-sorted by FIRST name.)
Please visit the Nayatt School page of the Arts Alive website to access music (as well as other important info). Password: nayatt2019
Once we start working scene to scene, kids should come to rehearsals knowing their lines! They will be expected to learn lines at home! A little bit of work goes a LONG way!
Children should also bring a peanut-free SNACK as well as their SCRIPT and a pencil to every rehearsal
Rehearsals end at 4:30pm for 2nd & 3rd graders and 4pm for 1st graders. Please be on time to pick up your child. We appreciate your respect to our staff and parent volunteers. Note our Dismissal & Late Policy.
Nayatt School Scholastic Book Fair
Dear Parents and Families:
Did you know? Reading just 20
minutes a day exposes your child to about 1.8 million words per year. Reading helps students develop a stronger vocabulary, and in addition, students who read for pleasure average higher grades in English, mathematics, science, and history!
Encourage your child to read books
for fun by attending our upcoming Scholastic Book Fair. Allow your child to choose the books they want to read! It’s a wonderful selection of engaging and affordable books for every reading level.
Mark your calendar!
Book Fair dates: December 3rd-December 7th
Nayatt Scholastic Book Fair Family Night,
5:30-7:30 PM-Food Trucks, Raffles, Crafts

Annual Giving Drive
Recently, you should have received a mailing from Barrington Education Foundation asking our community for help by supporting their Annual Giving Drive.
As a non-profit organization, BEF relies solely on the generosity of our community to fund grants of extraordinary educational opportunities to all of the Barrington Schools. Since its inception in 1992, BEF has been able to award over $1,000,000 in innovative grants directly to all of the Barrington Schools. Thank you for your continuous support.
The teachers and administrators of the Barrington School district work collaboratively with BEF in order to bring these grants to fruition, and they continue to be grateful for these unique opportunities to enhance all of our children’s educational experiences beyond the budget barriers.
Last December, for the first time ever, BEF hosted “Extraordinary Teaching and Learning: A Student Showcase”. Exhibits by students and teachers from across the district were on display, demonstrating the extraordinary teaching and learning happening in our schools. This event also provided students with the opportunity to present to an authentic audience, our community. More information about these types of powerful events that have been sponsored by BEF as well as highlights of past innovative grants can be found on the websitewww.barringtoneducation.com.
How can your family help to continue this important work in our schools? Donate today at:
