Welleby Elementary: Weekly Tidbits

Week of April 11, 2016

A Word from Principal Haynes

Greetings Parents,

I wanted to try something new this week and send this directly to your email in an effort to get more readers of our weekly newsletter. I hope that you enjoy this format. At any time if you wish to unsubscribe, you may do so by clicking "unsubscribe" at the end of the email. Should you decide to unsubscribe, please respond to this email and let me know why so that I may better serve our Welleby Community.

We had approximately 40 families come to our Kindergarten Round Up on Friday. Please encourage your neighbors who have kindergarten students to come to the school to pick up a registration packet if they haven't done so yet!

This week our 4th and 5th grade students will continue with their FSA Testing. Please make sure that students are in school and on time. 4th grade students will be taking an ELA test which is a reading test and our 5th grade students will be taking their science test. Please make sure they are here to test with their class each day.

Dental cleanings will begin this week for students whose parents completed the forms agreeing to the cleaning. If you missed a chance to send in the form, a "Second Chance" form will be coming home this week as well. Don't miss this opportunity to have your child's teeth cleaned and sealed.

Report cards are coming home on Thursday, please look it over, sign the envelope, and return it to your child's teacher.

Parents--this is the last week to complete the AdvancED Survey. We need approximately 150 parents to complete the survey and right now, we only have about 80. Please take a moment to click the link below and complete the survey. It is VERY short!!

Have a Marvelous Week!!
Principal Haynes
