BUILDING A FIRM FOUNDATION
PRISMATIC MAGIC ASSEMBLY!
New this year - because you scheduled a program with our STEM Expansion, you, the teachers, the students and everyone at the school receive exclusive access to Prismatic Magic’s Laser Camp – a website where you can learn laser facts, watch educational videos, laser music videos, get answers to some Frequently Asked Questions, see laser special effects and more! Teachers and students are able to continue their exploration of lasers that our in-person show starts. You have access to this website from now until the end of the school year.
After the school has experienced the laser program, please share the following link and password to all who need it:
BONUS FROM PRISMATIC MAGIC!
Our PTA scheduled this program to include a STEM Expansion! Therefore all of us at Wyatt, including our students, will receive exclusive access to Prismatic Magic’s Laser Camp – a website where you can learn laser facts, watch educational videos, laser music videos, get answers to some Frequently Asked Questions, see laser special effects and more! Teachers and students are able to continue their exploration of lasers that our in-person show starts. Access to this website starts today and goes to the end of the school year.
If the bell rings and your child is still outside the building, they are tardy. In the past, we have allowed about 2 minutes of wiggle room, just because we are nice. We will never mark a student tardy if the weather is very bad (rain or snow), or there is some delay in the carpool line that causes everyone in line to be late. But, going forward, if your child is tardy they will be marked tardy, and you will receive an automatic phone call. If you have more than two during the week, you will get a personal call from one of the administrators.
Please remember that 3 tardies = 1 absence.
Leave the house with plenty of time to spare - we drive slowly in the carpool line - please, do not speed.
