Principal’s Message- June 2018

Date: June 7, 2018 Author: Julie Fram-Greig Categories: Principal's Message

From the Principal:
It is hard to believe that we are at the end of our school year! The students are working hard on their last assessments and work to finish off the year successfully. June is a busy month with a last push of learning but also a time to celebrate our successes. Report cards will be mailed home to parents during the last week of June after school is over. It will include information for next year, such as the calendar, school supplies list and school fees. If there are any issues with your child’s report card, please contact the school.
If you are planning to volunteer for your child’s end of year activities, please be sure to have an updated police check on file. You can contact the school should you need help.
I want to extend a huge thank you to Tina Eckerlin and the Wakefield Brownies for the wonderful work they did in May. They worked very hard to plant saplings and bushes in various areas around the school yard, especially in our new area. It was a lot of hard work and it makes the yard look wonderful- thank you! And some exciting news: our grant was approved and we will be getting a new play structure this fall! We are hoping that it is installed over the summer and ready to go when school starts in September. It will be located in the new upper playground area. Thanks again to our Playground Committee and fundraising efforts from years’ past that supported this project as well.
Also some news that our water has finally passed the required testing and we are able to use the water fountains throughout the school.
Lastly, we would like to extend a huge thank you to all of the parents who volunteer throughout the school year with a variety of events. Thanks also to Wakefield Elementary Home and School Association for their ongoing support this year and for all of their time and effort. From field trips, working in the library, to head checks and serving pizza hot lunches, we all appreciate the time and energy and effort that you contribute to making Wakefield School a wonderful place. We need parents to be our partners at school, and we are grateful to have your support. On behalf of the staff of Wakefield School, we wish you a happy, safe and fun summer with your family!
