Happy Friday Wakelon Families!


This is Principal Nealy with our Wakelon Weekly Updates!  Can you believe that this is the last week of school?  It has gone by so fast and we are excited to celebrate our students next week! 


End Of Year Celebrations:

We have made some recent updates with our End of Year Celebrations.  We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.  Please see the Student Award Recognition schedule below:

Following the ceremonies, all students can be checked out by their classroom teacher if you want them to leave early.  


Kona Ice will be on campus on Monday and Tuesday for students to purchase for $5 depending on the date that they have Summer Olympics.  Please be sure to provide your child with 5.00 for a Kona Ice.  Thank you! Please access this flyer to learn more about our Summer Olympics. 


EOG Retest: We have a few students who are being invited back for EOG Retest.  All of these students must come to school on their assigned day to retake their EOG test.  This is by invitation only.  Invitations have been sent home with students who meet the retake requirements.


Report Cards: Reports will be sent home with all students on Tuesday.


YMCA for 2024-2025:  I am beyond happy to share that we have an amazing plan in place to offer YMCA (at an affordable price) to all Wakelon families for the 24/25 school year.  The website is currently active, and parents can start registering for the 2024- 2025 school year now.  You should have also received a flyer from your child’s teacher.  We will also be offering Y-Learning which is an after-school tutoring program.  Students will receive additional support from YMCA-certified staff members.
