A Note From the Principal

Happy New Year to you and your family! I hope that this newsletter finds you and your family doing well!

The beginning of 2023 is an exciting time for us here at Wabash! Our students, staff and teachers will spend some time reflecting upon the first half of the school year and setting goals for the remainder of this school year. Setting obtainable and realistic goals will allow us all to focus on areas where improvement is needed most. I will personally be asking the students to reflect and set goals for specific areas within reading, writing and mathematics. Our students have been working very hard to make improvements this year. I strongly believe that if we support our students in their academic goals, our students will reach new levels of academic excellence. Please take some time to speak to your children about the goals they have set for themselves this year. Our students need to know that all of the adults around them care about their progress here at school. This is a great opportunity to share your thoughts about the importance of education as well.

Watch out 2023 - Here come the DUCKS!

Every Student Matters, Every Moment Counts!

Safety Reminders for Arrival and Dismissal

For our Car Riders:

  1. Please have your child seated on the right side of the car so they do not have to exit the car on the driver side. It is best that they exit and enter the car via the passenger side along our front sidewalk. Cars pull through the front lane via the left lane. For your child's safety, it's best for them to enter and exit their car on the passenger side of the car.

  2. All parents should stay in the cars as students are exiting the car. We have staff out there to help open doors for your students if needed.

  3. Please work with your younger children to help them learn how to buckle and unbuckle themselves. Building independence is good practice.

  4. Please have your child collect all their belongings so they are ready to go when the car stops (book bag, lunch box, water bottle, etc).

For our Walkers and Bike Riders:

  1. Please ensure that students are not arriving at the main crosswalk until after 8:20 am. There are no staff on duty outside prior to 8:20 am. For most students, the walk or bike ride is pretty short. We suggest that they do not leave the house until 8:20 am. Most will be here by 8:25 am and will not be late as the final bell rings at 8:35 am. You can adjust this timing as needed for where you live.

  2. Please talk to the children about crossing streets only when necessary and only at appropriate corners. It would be good to walk the route with your child at some point to make sure they know the safest route to school.

  3. Please do not drop off or pick up children on Golden Gate. We are always on stranger danger alert and cars picking up kids in the street is concerning. This also causes issues with students going into the street and not being safe.

  4. If your child is not a walker or bike rider, they should be using the bus service or being dropped off via our front car rider line. Please do not drop off on Golden Gate or in the parking lot across the street, as they should be dropped off via the Car Rider Line.

Thank you for your attention to all of these reminders. Our goal is to keep our kids safe!


Congratulations to these students...

Please encourage your child to check the lost and found if they are missing a jacket or coat. We have also collected a handful of sweatshirts, water bottles, and lunchboxes. If you can add a first and last name to these items, we can get them returned more easily if they get misplaced in the future.

Thank you to everyone who participated in Stuff the Stockings! Because of your generosity, we were able to provide a happy holiday to 13 families in our building.

As we move into the New Year, we want to share with you that counselors will be starting small groups to help students with various needs. Groups that will be offered are as follows; divorce, friendship, anxiety, social skills, etc. Groups will be formed based on need. If your child is struggling and you feel like a group would be helpful, please feel free to reach out to either Kathy Pousson (K-2 Counselor) or Kristen Patterson (3-5 Counselor).

WABASH Needs your Help


We critically need substitute teachers to help support our Wabash staff, and we're asking for your help! Step into our classrooms as your schedule allows as a Wabash sub. Subbing gives you the opportunity to get involved at Wabash at your convenience! As an added bonus, you can see what your child is up to each day! We're not looking for a long-term or daily commitment, but rather help as you are available. Learn more and apply today.

The WSD will once again be providing supervision for K-5 students who need to be dropped off at the regular start time on scheduled Late Start Days in the 2022-2023 school year. This is separate from our Before Care Program through Chautauqua, so if you are registered for Chautauqua, please DO NOT register for Late Start Supervision.

The fee is $10 per child for each late start day you would like to register for. Please fill out the REGISTRATION FORM first prior to paying. If you choose to use PayPal, there is a sliding scale charge assessed to cover processing costs. You also have the option to send a check in to your child's school. In order to arrange for adequate staffing, you must register and pay before the deadline for each late start day (deadline is one week prior to each late start). You may also register for all late start dates one time by choosing the dates you need in the registration form.

Future Late Start Dates:

February 6, 2023

March 6, 2023

April 10, 2023
