Attention 8th Grade Parents:

We held "Pod Talks" this week with our 8th grade teams with these three agenda items:
  • Reflect on 2nd Quarter Goal/Behaviors
  • Learn about vaping - presented by Detective McCowan (see her profile below!)
  • Set a 3rd/4th Quarter Goal

Take a moment this weekend to have a conversation with your 8th grader about this pod talk. This is a great opportunity to open a dialogue about the subject of vaping (if you haven't already done so) and discuss the common misconceptions regarding vaping as well as the legal ramifications/school discipline for students.


Ask what they learned from Officer McCowan about vaping? CLICK HERE to see the topics she covered. Our hope is to give you some great discussion points.


Mrs. Dague asked them the following questions to wrap up the talk:

  • What is your because? (From the Josh Drean assembly)
  • What can you do to generate a culture of positivity?
  • What is your goal as you end your middle school experience?
These would also be some great questions to ask your 8th grader to wrap up any discussion you may be having with them.


We hope you find this recap helpful!

Meet Detective Bridget McCowan

We are very fortunate to have Detective McCowan, the Student Resource Officer (SRO) at St. Charles East High School, as an asset for our students here at Wredling. We benefit from her years of experience and training as she provides us with support, education and intervention as needed. We appreciate her time and the information she provides to our students. Detective McCowan is a valuable resource to our Wredling Community!
