Principal's Message-

It is hard to believe this is our last newsletter of the 2018-2019 school year! Together we have many accomplishments to celebrate! Our dedicated staff and active community partners have worked to ensure that ALL students experienced success and growth in their academic, social-emotional and extracurricular goals!


We will move into next school year with the same passion for service to our students. We forge ahead with our goals and professional learning tailored to providing an individualized educational approach to each student anchored in relationships and providing relevance and rigor for authentic learning. We will continue to build on the work we have achieved this year related to our innovative instructional techniques and school structures which will expand to all of our learners.


It continues to be an honor and privilege to serve as principal of Wolfsville school! I feel blessed to serve such a supportive and active educational community. Your thoughts and feedback are important to us. I hope you will join me this Thursday , June 6 in the media center for my Parent Information & Feedback session from 5:00-6:00 PM (prior to the PTA meeting). If you are unavailable to make the designated time but would still like to meet you can call the front office at 240-236-2250 to set up an additional meeting.


I sincerely thank each and every one of you for sharing your children with us and supporting our school. Thank you for a successful and collaborative year!


Yours in Education,

Megan Stein
