End of the Year Locker Clean Out
We have had many questions about locker clean-out for the end of the year. We will have a detailed plan coming to you soon, but here is the short version. For now, please do not send questions until we send you complete details.
- Parents will use the same software that we used for conferences to pick a time for their child to come to the building. Only students may enter the building and students must wear masks or a face covering.
- Kids will need to bring backpacks and bags with them for their materials.
- Kids will enter through the gym entrance, clean out their PE locker, stop in the cafeteria to pick-up their yearbook and (for 8th grade) completion certificate.
- Students can drop off library books or other teacher classroom library books in the cafeteria.
- They will then go to their main locker and clean it out, placing subject area books in the pods, then exit the building.
- There will be some adult support for students when they are in the building.
Again, we will send out more detailed information soon, so please stay tuned!

Virtual Messages from the WMS Staff! We Miss YOU!!!
Returning Student Registration for 2020-2021 has moved to an online format that will open on April 27. In years past, parents completed the necessary paperwork in paper format. This year, all acknowledgments and authorizations are contained in a single electronic, online registration form that will be easily accessible from most electronic devices (computer, Chromebook, and Smartphones).
Beginning April 27, parents can sign into the Returning Student Online Registration form using their Home Access Center (HAC) credentials, select individual students, and complete their registration. The form will be located in the Parents/Community menu of the District website.
Registration fees for elementary and middle school will be available in Pushcoin beginning April 27, and billed to reflect the early bird discount of $10.00 if paid by May 22. High School fees will be available in June. For families who may qualify for a fee waiver, and are not directly certified by the state, a 2020-2021 district fee waiver application will be available on the District 303 website in July, accessible from the Parent/Community menu.

Dear WMS Families
We realize that there are varied financial challenges right now for more of our families. Through the generosity of WMS families, we have a fund for families in need. While we understand there are a variety of community agencies that support, schools often serve as that conduit. Gift cards can include Jewel, Target, Walmart, or other primary food sources.
If you need a gift card for food, please send an email to email@example.com.
If you would like to donate a gift card or some cash, please send it to Wredling or email Tim Loversky to arrange a time for drop-off:
c/o Wredling Middle School
1200 Dunham Road
St. Carles, IL 60174
Please let us know if you have a need- we are a community that cares for each other! And we appreciate all of your generosity and kindness as we face an unprecedented time of need for some of our families.
A RESOURCE LIST FOR WHILE YOUR FAMILY IS 'STAYING HOME." OUR HOPE IS THAT YOU FIND SOMETHING OF INTEREST YOU CAN SHARE WITH EACH OTHER.
SEL LESSONS FROM D303
SEL Lessons: This week’s SEL lesson focuses on relationship skills and their development through communicating effectively. Make sure to check out the information and resources highlighted for parents. This weeks competency is:
Relationship skills: The ability to establish and maintain healthy and rewarding relationships with diverse individuals and groups. This includes communicating clearly, listening actively, cooperating, resisting inappropriate social pressure, negotiating conflict constructively, and seeking and offering help when needed.
The challenges and uncertainty facing families and children are impactful on overall mental health and well being. We are hopeful the resources shared will be a support to parents/guardians and children. If you have any questions on the information provided or are seeking additional support for yourself or child, please contact Patti Palagi, Director Instructional Interventions (firstname.lastname@example.org or 331-228-6457).

I am an award-winning children's author who spoke at Wild Rose last year and was scheduled to speak at Ferson Creek and Lincoln this spring. I am also an Illinois resident and the founder of Idea Tank for Kids, an entrepreneurship competition for Illinois kids age 8-13. (Think Shark Tank for Kids!)
I'm writing with an exciting opportunity for your students. This spring, Idea Tank for Kids is AT HOME. Illinois kids age 8-13 are invited to create a video of their idea and submit their pitch to www.IdeaTankForKids.com.
Grand prize is $1,000! Deadline to apply is May 25, 2020. Finalists will pitch their idea on Zoom to a panel of judges on June 5, 2020.
I have attached a flyer about Idea Tank for Kids in hopes that this is something you want to pass on to your students and educators.
