Principal's Message

Hello Wolf Hill Families,


It is hard to believe that we have come to the end of our first month of the school year! We are off and running and excited about the coming months ahead. Information regarding the upcoming Halloween holiday will be forthcoming in next weeks newsletter. Please make sure to read the costume requirements, parade information, and food safety regulations for class parties. The arrival and dismissal process has become much smoother due to your cooperation and for having the students on the passenger side and ready to go. Thank you for that! I wanted to also remind parents that dogs are not permitted on school property while the children are present. If you are going to bring your dog to drop off or dismissal please make sure the dog stays on the sidewalk closest to the street and off school grounds.


We have some information parent nights coming up in the district that we hope you can attend. Our first ESS parent night will be held on Thursday, October 6th from 6pm-7pm. The event is virtual. We will be holding an HIB Parent information session on Monday, October 17th 6:30 PM in the Maple Place Cafeteria. We also hope that you can join us on October 13th for the Wolf Hill School Ribbon cutting ceremony! This event will start at 5pm! If you are able to join us in the celebration, please RSVP to Rosalie Cuoco at rcuoco@oceanportschools.org. I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend! Please check the important date reminders at the bottom of this newsletter!


Sincerely,


Mr. Mags
