What’s Up Wakefield
1. Monday is a teacher workday and there is no school. Enjoy the extra day off and we will see you Tuesday.
2. September 27th there will be interim reports coming home so please be on the lookout for those. It is a great time to sit down and have a conversation with your child about their work and how they are doing.
3.September is Attendance Awareness Month
Getting into the habit of daily attendance is more important than ever. It helps to:
· reduce stress
· make it easier to connect with friends and teachers
· support learning
We are working to make our school environment a place where everyone can be safe, healthy and learning. We will do our best to listen and partner with you so that your children have a successful year.
Please provide in writing the reason for and dates of your child's absences. This can be done via email to our Data Manager, Pam Morrison (firstname.lastname@example.org) or sending a note when the student returns.
Should you need additional support with attendance, please reach out to the grade level counselor and/or our School Social Worker:
·6th grade, E. Harper, email@example.com
·7th grade, C. Cox, firstname.lastname@example.org
·8th grade, M. Avery email@example.com
·Social Worker: E. Hemphill firstname.lastname@example.org
4. AIG Services will begin on the 26th for students as they will be pulled from Wolftime for a week of enrichment on a rotating basis.
