Looking Forward to the New Year
For this coming year we hope to continue to capitalize off of these wins and further utilize strong collaboration among staff members to support and grow your learner! You may notice we will use flexible grouping structures based on academic growth and a variety of our skilled educators will be working in classrooms. Furthermore, we will continue to examine student agency and fostering choice and pace of skills with technological resources that interest and excite our learners!
I am greatly looking forward to another exciting school year at Wolfsville and thank you in advance for serving as partners in the coming year. Together we will continue our mission of empowering students to ‘experience the pride of achievement through the power of learning’.
Yours in Education,
Megan Stein, Principal

Find out First Upgrade
Frederick County Public Schools is upgrading its FindOutFirst (FOF) email and texting communication service. Parents will no longer need to update their children’s grade levels each summer or change school locations in their FOF accounts.
Instead, the school system will upload this information, including the email address the parent has on file with the school. This will cut down on the volume of email parents receive as schools can rely on targeting their messages to accurate grade-level groups. Therefore, it is important that we have your correct e-mail address and phone number on your child's emergency contact form.
You can read the full release of the FOF system here: https://www.fcps.org/about/news/1642252/fcps-is-upgrading-findoutfirst
