WES' Weekly Principal's Message 9-20-21

Good afternoon Wonderful Wakefield Eagle Families!  This is your principal, Ms. Keech, with this week's announcements.  A copy of this transcript will be shared with our PTA and archived on our website under Principal's Messages.


Exciting Opportunity for our School and Students:

Your children's teachers will be contacting you with the below exciting opportunity:


It's the time of year for Sonic Limeades for Learning Competition!

From September 27-October 24th, Sonic Drive-in is having their Limeades for Learning campaign where they will be donating $1 million to fund public school projects through Donors Choose.


Wakefield Elementary has a very special project that we are hoping to get fully funded. We are working with a former student who is now in high school and working on his Eagle Scout project.  He wants to design and install a Reading Garden on our school campus!


However, we need help!  A key part of the project is the purchase of portable nylon hammocks for the students to use in the new Reading Garden. By participating in the Sonic Limeades for Learning competition, we can get them to help purchase the hammocks for our students. 


Where do you come in?  By using your email addresses to vote!   During the campaign, votes for a project can be entered daily using an email address.  


We can also actually take the work out of it for you by voting for you!  With your permission, our Reading Intervention teacher, Ms. Darrow, will be entering YOUR email addresses as "votes" on our Donors Choose projects to win up to $2400 in free donations from Sonic from Sept. 27-Oct. 24. 
This is a huge opportunity for our school to get major funding and every email vote counts.Therefore, can 
we use your email address to vote? Sonic will NOT spam you or sell your email. You'll get a confirmation email to click on once we register your email address (sometime this weekend) and you'll get a congrats email when Sonic gives us a weekly donation, but that is ALL you will need to do. We will do the daily voting for you.
Please PM Ms. Darrow at ( with any and all email addresses (personal, work, grandma/grandpa's etc.) that she can use!
If you've never donated your email to a good cause, this is a super-easy way to help our school. Help us win money for this project!
*You can also earn extra votes during the campaign dates through the Sonic app. Every purchase made through the SONIC app or online will generate a code sent to you via email. You can forward the code to Ms. Darrow, and we will add it to our votes. 
**If you have further questions or need more information, please contact your child's teacher or email Ms. Darrow (
