Welleby Elementary: Weekly Tidbits

Week of May 15, 2016

A Word from Principal Haynes

Greetings Parents,

We are excited to have most of our testing completed. On Monday, May 16th, some select third graders will be taking the SAT 10. This is ONLY for certain students who may need another opportunity to meet promotion criteria. Those students received a letter from Ms. Atelus to take home to their parent.

We are still awaiting final word regarding our VPK class, however, if you are (or someone you may know is) interested in our VPK class, please call Ms. Ham in the front office and have the child's name placed on the tentative list. Once we have more information, we will let you know how to proceed.

We do have room in our fee-based Pre-K program (for those students who do not yet qualify for VPK) and we are accepting registrations for that. Please call the front office for more information. We look forward to your children learning and growing with us here at Welleby.

Have a Marvelous Week!!
