February Newsletter

Date: February 6, 2020 Author: Julie Fram-Greig Categories: News

Dear Parents,


February is always a short but busy month!  As always, please send your child with layers and extra clothes for the rollercoaster weather we are having.   Teachers are working on report cards for Term 2 and they will be available through the portal before the March Break.   As well, we will be hosting interviews with parents by invitation on the evening of Feb 20th and on the PD day Feb 21st.  Your child’s teacher will be in touch to schedule an interview if it is needed.

Next week is Staff Appreciation Week at Wakefield School.  This is a time when we recognize and appreciate the outstanding staff members who work with our students.  We are so fortunate to have very kind, caring and dedicated professionals working at Wakefield School.  Some simple but much appreciated gestures could be writing a note, an email of thanks, or drawings- these appreciations go a long way in making our staff feel valued for the important work they do every day.
