Calling All Volunteers!

Hi, Whitt Wolf Parents!

On May 1st we plan to say thank you to our paraprofessionals by providing a lunch for them to enjoy. All we need are volunteers to help cover their lunch duty so they can enjoy their lunch! Below is a link if you are interested in helping to monitor our Wolves during lunch that day.

The schedule has 30 minute increments that need to be covered. Feel free to sign up for more than one time slot if you wish!

*Important!* If you plan to eat lunch with your child that day, please select a time to volunteer that is not during your child’s lunch. Our volunteers will be up and monitoring, opening, wiping, etc!

Please email or call Mrs. Power with any questions!

Notes from the Nurse

Do you know how much sleep your child should be getting? The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) recommends that school-age children receive 9-12 hours of sleep each night.


If your child is consistently getting less than the recommended hours of sleep it can lead to irritability, difficulty concentrating, headaches, stomachaches, obesity and even high blood pressure and depression. Children who receive adequate sleep have a healthier immune system, can regulate their emotions easier, are absent less from school and have a better memory and school performance.


Here are a few reminders to help your child receive the sleep they need to help them be happy, healthy and successful:


  • Maintain a regular daily routine.
  • Make sleep a priority.
  • Be active during the day.
  • Monitor screen time.
  • Avoid over-scheduling your child.
  • Create a consistent bedtime routine.
