     OK, my spirited Eagles!  This is Spirit Week.  Today was Crazy Sock Day, Tuesday (tomorrow) will be "Green Eggs and Ham" day - wear green, Wednesday is Wacky Wed and wear mismatched clothes, wear clothes backwards, inside-out and etc., Thursday is "The Cat in the Hat" wear your favorite hat, and Friday is "If I Ran the Zoo" wear animal print.
    Wakefield families, please make sure that if you have a rising kindergartner that you register them now.  We are beginning to plan for next year and need to know our enrollment numbers in order to hire teachers, and buy materials. 
    This coming Saturday, March 4th our PTA will be sponsoring a Mother-Son event at Rec Sports.  If you wish to attend, you will need to get your form in ASAP.  Please also note that our Black History Quiz Bowl team will also be competing this Saturday at Shaw University.  We are very excited for our team and know that they will do well.
    Parents, please make sure that when visiting our school and your child, that you continue to follow the protocol in place.  Although, we love our parents to be in our building, you must schedule an appointment with your child's teacher or arrange for your visit ahead of time prior to arriving at our school.  We want to continue to have a safe campus in which learning and teaching can proceed uninterrupted.  If you arrive on our campus unannounced, your visit could be limited to the front office only. Thank you for helping us keep our campus safe and conducive for learning.
    That's all for now!  Goooooooo Eagles!

    Families, this week we are recognizing National School Counseling Week.  Please make sure that you take a moment to thank our counselor, Ms. Johnson for all of the great things that she does for Wakefield Elementary students, parents and staff.  We love our counselor!
    Please also do not forget that this Friday, Feb 10th is an Early Release Day.  Your children will be released from school at 1:15.  Please make sure that they have a way home at that time, due to our staff being in professional development and unable to provide supervision for your child after dismissal.
    Don't forget our Father-Daughter Dance this Saturday, Feb. 11th.  If you haven't already turned your form in to participate, please do so immediately. It's going to be a fun night in Paris!
    Parents, please make sure that you have taken a moment to review your child's report card that came home on Friday with them. Please also make sure that you contact your child's teacher or counselor if you have questions, concerns or would like to schedule a conference.
    Our PTA and Boosterthon staff are currently in the process of counting up all of our Boosterthon donations.  Please make sure (if you haven't already) to get those pledges turned in.
    That's all for now!  Goooooooo Eagles!!!!
