Music Concerts

Congratulations and bravo to the third and fourth graders in the Red and Purple Learning Communities for their outstanding concerts this week! It was incredible to have live music fill our school once again! We are looking forward to the Blue and Green third and fourth graders performance after Spring break.

Thank you Mr. Fletcher and Mrs. Goodall for all your hard work preparing the gift of music for all of us!

5th Grade 2022 Language Preference for MS

Due date: May 6th, 2022

Dear 5th Grade Families,

As we begin planning ahead to next year, it is time to have your child indicate his/her Middle School language preference. Now that your child is completing 5th grade World Language we would like to have you complete this survey with your child. With Introductory World Language classes being offered at Wentworth, Middle School World Language study provides students an even deeper experience with one language over 3 years.

At this time, we are asking that you have a conversation with your child about their language preference; French, Spanish or Either. Please complete this form by May 6th. Your indication here is not a guarantee of language placement; at the same time, we will do our best to honor preferences to the degree that scheduling will allow. If feedback is not received by the due date, school staff will move forward with placement decisions.

Use this link to indicate your child's middle school language preference. Thank you!



April 7th- May 7th

Wentworth School Garden is an outdoor classroom! We integrate as many subjects and teaching possibilities into our garden area as possible. This winter we installed a new and larger greenhouse. We have seed for our first crop...spinach! We will create natural habitat by adding native plants that will bring diversity to the bird population we attract. We are also going to continue to donate to food pantries this season. Please help us grow our garden as you grow yours!

Go to this link and order. Plants will be shipped directly to you and we will receive 50% of the cost: http://WentworthSchoolGarden.fpfundraising.com

Thank you, Scarborough Garden Club!

Thank you to the Scarborough Garden Club for donating a $50 Ace Hardware Card for the Wentworth Garden! We will put this gift to good use.
