Welleby Elementary: Weekly Tidbits

Week of May 2, 2016

A Word from Principal Haynes

Greetings Parents,

Thank you for supporting the many different events both on and off campus last week. We know your time is valuable, so we thank you for including your Welleby family into your busy day. It is always appreciated.

Parents, if you have a friend or colleague who would like to have their child reassigned to Welleby for the 2016-2017 school year, the reassignment window opens again on Monday, May 2nd. If your child is in the VPK or any of our PK programs, and Welleby is not your boundary school, you will need to complete a reassignment application. Seats will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis so don't delay.

Once you are granted a reassignment, it is good until the last grade level of the school. You do not have to complete an application every year. Call the front office for more information.

Have a Marvelous Week!!

Principal Haynes
