Anne Wien Announcements

School Newsletter for Week of February 18, 2021

Dear Anne Wien Elementary Families,

Thank you for attending our second round of Parent/Teacher Conferences this week. This year more than any other we have had unique insight into the vital role you have played as partners in your child's education. Thank you for reaching out to your teachers, sharing your insights and asking questions regarding your child's progress this year. We look forward to ending these last 2.5 weeks of 3rd Quarter on a strong note!
