A Word From Principal Haynes

Dear Welleby Family,

I want to take a moment to welcome Ms. Deborah Warner as our new Office Manager. Ms. Warner comes to us from Parkside Elementary in Coral Springs where she was the Office Manager for the last 11 years. She has a wealth of experience both at the school level and the District level. Please stop by and welcome her into our family. Also, on Tuesday, May 17th we will officially welcome her and recognize our Teacher of the Year and School Related Employee of the Year at our Faculty Meeting in the Media Center at 2:15PM.

We've some busy weeks ahead with final RTI meetings, Leadership Team Meetings, Field Days, Career Day, a Shoe Drive, Jeans for Troops Day, and not to mention our upcoming awards celebrations. With the switch to Outlook, it is VITAL that you check your email regularly for any updates and changes.

As the weather heats up and the cloud cover become virtually non-existent, please be careful when out at recess and in the carpool area. Don't forget your sunscreen, shades, and hats. Watch the students as well--they easily overheat and don't always know when to take a break. So please be diligent in your monitoring.

Have an AMAZING week!!


Outlook is Coming!

Join Ms. Hunt in the Media Center on Monday morning to learn the basics of Outlook. Further training will be provided throughout the week--check the schedule from Ms. Hunt on CAB. Checking email is vital in this business and every effort should be made to check email a minimum of two times daily. As we transition, it will be even more important for you to make sure you stay on top of your emails.

If you need any assistance during this transition, please do not hesitate to reach out to Ms. Hunt, a Support Team member, and/or Administration. We are in this TOGETHER!!
