Notes From Mrs. Carder

Dear Wanda Gray Families,


What a wonderful start to the 2019-20 school year! The students have transitioned well into their classrooms and routines.


Ways to keep informed: classroom newsletters, school web site, Gray Facebook and Twitter, and monthly newsletter.


We have school attendance goals: We want to be in the top 3 for best attendance in the district and stay above 96% in attendance. Each week we celebrate the top 3 classrooms by announcing them, posting them on social media, and giving the top classroom Blow Pop suckers for "Blowing the Top off Attendance!" We have monthly incentives and quarterly ribbons for perfect attendance as well. Let's keep our students in school and learning each day!


Read, read, read! We need our students reading lots this year to grow in their reading skills! Set goals and celebrate when your child reads books - better yet - join the fun and read with your child!


For the Students,

Angie Carder

Principal at Wanda Gray


Reminders for Safety

Here are a few reminders:

  • No Child should be on the parking lot without an adult ever!
  • No parking in the handicap parking spot without a handicap tag.
  • Drive slowly and carefully through the parking lot.
  • No double parking.
  • Yellow tag needed for walk ups and car line.
  • Patience - we have close to 550 students to get home safely.
