Parents,

I want to begin by thanking you for the tremendous support you have shown during this first month of school. I ask that you continue to stay in touch with me if you have any questions or concerns by calling the school at 735-2205 and ask to speak to me. I will be more than happy to help you in any way that I can. Thank your for making sure that your child is in attendance everyday. Please continue to get them there on time every morning because we try to use every  moment possible for instruction.

There are several things that I want to bring to your attention before listing the new goals for the week.

  • PTO $5.00 (if you have not already paid, if you have paid already then thank you so much)
  • Activity Fee $12.00 (if you have not already paid, if you have then thank you so much)

  • Deadline for ordering Constitution shirts is September 10th. Please be sure to send the payment with your form when ordering.
  • Community Night will be held at WCHS in the commons on Monday, August 31st at 6:00pm.

It is very important that you keep these forms at home where you will know where they are and each time your child is absent please fill out one form and send it in their homework folder the day that they return to school. If you have an excuse then attach it to the form and send them both.
