Dear Wellpinit Families,
Welcome to the start of another school year at Wellpinit Elementary School! The first day of school is quickly approaching – Wednesday, August 23, 2017 is the first day of school for all students except for kindergartners whose first day is Monday, August 28, 2017. The staff and I are thrilled to share another year of learning together with all of our wonderful Wellpinit Eagles.
It is our mission to help every child feel capable, cared for, connected, and part of our Eagle family. We are looking forward to a productive partnership with you to ensure our children can achieve their highest potential. We recognize that in order to be successful in school, our children need support from both the home and school. We know a strong partnership with you will make a great difference in your child’s education. As partners, we share the responsibility for our children’s success and want you to know that we will do our very best to carry out our responsibilities. We ask that you guide and support your child’s learning by ensuring that she/he:
1) Attends school daily and arrives on time, ready for the day’s learning experience
2) Completes all homework assignments given by teachers
3) Reads daily to develop a love for reading and to improve literacy skills
4) Shares school experiences with you so that you are aware of his/her school life
5) Informs you if he/she needs additional support in any area or subject
6) Knows that you expect him/her to succeed in school
We are really excited that we will have a real playground this year! Thanks to the Wellpinit School Board and to our maintenance crew for their commitment to helping provide a safe, and high quality space for children to play. Please stop by and check it out sometime!
You are welcomed and encouraged to come to school to visit, volunteer, or have breakfast or lunch with your child. We will have a variety of events again this year including literacy and math nights so watch for that information to come out. Also, please be sure to visit our website as it has lots of information and is updated regularly. Back to school supply lists are on our website or you can pick one up from the office.
As always, please don’t hesitate to call me if you have any questions or concerns.
