2022 Fire Truck Ride to School

Better Together

Dear Wiggin Street Families,

It's hard to believe that next week is the last week of school! There have been so many great events this week, and I apologize for not trimming down the number of photos. It's just hard not to get the entire school body represented on these fun days.

We have the Talent Show next Tuesday and families are welcome to attend. We will round out the year with Kindergarten and 5th Grade Graduation on Thursday, May 26th. Check out the Upcoming Important Dates for other events and times. Remember that we have a 2 hour early dismissal on Thursday. I have also provided next year's school calendar.

Have a wonderful weekend!

2022-23 Class Lists

Class lists will be posted August 3rd on our front doors as well as being shared through Instant Connect. They will not be going home in their report card envelopes. A lot goes into creating class lists. Teachers meet with the next grade level as well as other staff that work closely with the grade level to make sure the classes are well balanced. This continues into the summer as we are made aware of new enrollment. For these reasons, we feel it is important to wait till August to share the final lists. Thank you for understanding.
