Weekly Message for April 22, 2019


Hello Wakelon Families!  This is Ms. Cooper with the weekly message.  I hope you all had a safe and enjoyable Spring Break!


Parent Survey: Parents, WCPSS and Panorama Education have partnered to conduct a Parent Survey. The Survey will give us valuable data on how we can continue to engage parents and the community and improve the ways we engage with parents at Wakelon Elementary.  Many of you received an email with the survey link. Please check your email inbox or junk/spam folders for the Survey link. Your child will also be bringing home a form today with the survey link. We hope to have 30% of our families complete the survey. If the school reaches our goal the entire school will receive ice cream! This is your opportunity to let us know how we are doing and what we can improve on so that your child is receiving nothing but the best


Morning Arrival:  If you drop your child off after 9:15, you must come inside and sign him/her in.  You can not send your child in alone.  Students are not allowed to sign themselves into school.


Kindergarten Registration: On Saturday, April 26 we will have staff available to support parents with registering their child for kindergarten from 10:00-2:00.  We will have snacks available and each child will receive a “Welcome to Kindergarten” goodie bag! 


Talent Show: Please save the date: On May 23 we will hold our first Student Talent Show.  The time is 6:00-7:00 and the cost is $3 for all adults and non-Wakelon students.  Please join us!!!
