A Few Words from the Parents' Association
Thanks to all the parents who attended our Parent Social this past week at Framebridge! Both Wagner and Framebridge benefited from this event, with Framebridge donating 10% of Wagner sales back to the school. We’re glad to have support from this area business.
Thank you also to the parents and students who helped with ticket donations at this week’s AMAZING band and chorus concert! With your help, the PA raised over $1200 which will go directly to arts programs including music.
