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.
Open House-Curriculum Night:
It was wonderful being able to see some of our families last week during our Virtual WES Open House-Curriculum Night. It was a very well-attended event. For those who may have missed their grade level sessions please contact your child's teacher/s for a link to the information.
