Happy New Year Wamsley Families!


I hope this newsletter finds you healthy and settling into this new year! We have had a great first week back to school here at Wamsley! Your kids are getting back into their routines and something new appeared here at school! Have your students shared that there is a “Why Try? Wall” built in our hallway that has been blocking our normal routines? The wall has many phrases posted on it that we often hear from students as they work during the day - some of them might shock you or you may hear them at home as well. In the coming weeks, we will be presenting 15 minute lessons every day addressing topics that impact your students every day. These lessons will help us refine our focus on "Effort = Achievement!" Ask your students about what they are learning!


Even though we made it to 2021, COVID is still with us and I want to thank you all for continuing to monitor symptoms and keep your children home! We have averted a couple of quarantines because of you and your diligence with helping us! Remember to keep your children home and call us if they have any symptoms. Also, please keep your children home if they have been exposed to COVID, or to someone who was exposed, or if anyone in the family is being tested! I cannot thank you enough for your efforts! We are able to stay open and keep as many kids in person as possible with your support!


In February we are trying something new with our PTAC meeting. We will have live Spanish translation for anyone that would like to join and see what our parent organization is up to! We have an amazing group of parents that support our efforts here and we always welcome anyone who would like to join us and help support your teachers and students. See you at 4pm on Tuesday, February 2, 2021! Call the office and we will share the meeting link with you. See you there!


Here’s to a 2021 filled with good health and many blessings! Thank you for all your support!
