Wakefield Hills Elementary School

Weekly Staff Update: May 9th-13th, 2016

I hope that you all enjoyed a nice weekend, especially those of you who are mothers! It looks like we will see the sun this week which will be a very welcome change. Have a great week!

A special thank you to our 3rd and 4th grade teachers who worked very hard over the past two weeks to administer the PARCC test to our students. Your diligence in following the protocols and testing procedures was very much appreciated. Overall, the two weeks went very smoothly. Make-Up testing will be held this week. Thank you!
