Wade King Elementary

Last Day of School - June 17th, 2022

A Note from the Principal

Hello Wade King Families,

Today was filled with fun, reflection, and goodbyes. As I say goodbye to our AMAZING school community I want you to know how much I have truly appreciated your partnership. With all of us working together, our Wade King Wolves are caring, principled young people who will make our community and world an even better place. They made me feel incredibly loved this week!

I'm wishing your family a restful summer and look forward to hearing stories about the things your children are learning and action they are taking. I've promised I'll come visit next year too.

With Incredible Gratitude,

Stephanie Johnson, Principal

Wishing You Well 5th Graders

Parading Thru Their School... One More Time!

As our 5th graders go off to middle school, we want them to remember that they will ALWAYS be a Wade King Kids! It has been amazing to watch you grow up and we hope you will come back and visit us often. They took one last walk through their school, and through many classrooms, as our staff and younger students cheered them on and wished them well.

Road To Middle School

We ended our day making a 'road to middle school' for our 5th graders to walk thru, complete with Mrs. McMeel from our office playing bagpipes. We love you 5th graders!

Ways to Help Our PTA Earn Money... even during the summer!

Link to Amazon Smile

If you are an Amazon user, you can set up Amazon Smile to link to our Wade King PTA. A percentage of what you spend will come right back to our PTA to support school events.
Did you know Box Tops for Education has an ap? No longer do you need to clip Box Tops to turn in. Join for free... and simply scan your receipts to earn money for our PTA. It's that easy!
