Note from Mrs. Ramos

A message from Mrs. Ramos…. With the Valentine’s Day parties coming up, please note a procedure we started last year at Wells. If you have more than one child at Wells, and you choose to attend one of our class parties during the year, Wells students are not allowed to attend the parties of their siblings. If you want to take your child home after their party, please feel free to do so. Just sign out in the front office. However, if you sign that child out, he or she may not attend the parties later in the day in other grade levels. These students have already had their party, and the classrooms are already crowded with parents. As always, if you have a younger sibling who does not attend Wells yet, he or she is welcome at our parties. Please direct any further questions to Mrs. Ramos at

Conferences will be the week of February 22nd - 26th, depending on the teacher. A Sign-Up Genius should be coming soon! Please don't forget to sign up.

Help with Planners

Please remember to check your child's planner each night. The planners have good reminders on things that are coming up or activities we have done that week. They are helpful in opening up the communication with your child. Also, if there is an issue going on at school, such as behaviors that need to be corrected, your teacher will write a note in the child's planner so parents can discuss better choices with their child. Thank you for helping us out with this.
