We hope that everyone has a wonderful winter break - and that Track 4 families enjoy their extra long track out. We'll see you in the new year!
SPIRIT NIGHT AT SERGIO'S
Friday, January 9, 2015
4 - 10pm
Eat in or take out, but remember to put your receipt in the bucket!
Sergio's wil be having a Wakefield Elementary Special - two one-topping pizzas plus a two liter soda for $22.95!
DEADLINE EXTENDED TO JANUARY 16!
At $20, your yearbook is a great keepsake for your children of their school year. It is 80 pages filled with photos of school events, field trips, awards and reports - and of course, class portraits. We do our best to ensure that EVERY child has at least one candid photo in it (provided of course they joined us before our submission deadline!).
Have any items to help with Science?
Parents, please save your empty 2 liter plastic soda bottles and their lids! We will be doing science experiments at various grade levels starting at the beginning of the year and we need TONS of two-liter plastic bottles! As you finish the contents of your Coke, Lemonade, Root Beer, etc please save the empty bottles and lids and send them in with your child to school. We can also use empty water bottles (not the minis) with lids. Likewise, for any families who happen to get new shoes for the holidays, instead of throwing away the boxes your new shoes come in, please send them in to the school. The boxes can be used for science projects starting in February. You may send in the shoe boxes any time between now and the end of February. Thank you for your support!
Now you can shop at Amazon and support our PTA at the same time! Simply select Wakefield Elementary PTA as your charity of choice, and Amazon will send us a percentage of the sales of eligible purchases!
TEACHER OF THE YEAR
We are thrilled to announce that the wonderful Jean Hockenyos is Wakefield Elementary's Teacher of the Year! Jean has been teaching for 45 years, and is a true gift to the profession. We wish her well in the state competition.

The school is trying to get to 300 followers! Once they reach that goal, Mrs. Privott has said she will paint her hair blue! I'm sure our students would love to see that, so remember to sign up to their Twitter account - Follow@WakefieldES.
