See Anything Familiar?
We have noticed that many students do not have locks on their lockers. There has also been an uptick in reports of items missing from various students. Please take the time to talk to your RedHawk and make sure that they have a Wredling lock on locker. Wredling locks have a WMS stamped on the backside. Should they need to purchase a lock, they are available in the main office for a cost of $5.00 each. Thanks for your help!
Calling all musicians!
A representative from Blue Lake Summer Music Camp will be visiting Wredling on Monday, December 3rd to do scholarship auditions during all performance music periods. NO auditions will take place after school. In order to be eligible for an audition time you MUST have a signed permission slip from a parent. Music directors will be handing out the permission slips. Instrumental students that are interested in auditioning should prepare two scales and an excerpt of a prepared piece, while vocalists should prepare several vocal warm-ups and an excerpt of a prepared song. Good luck on your audition!
This calendar is always being updated - especially at the beginning of the year! We are currently in the process of getting all of the club information on there!

Mindful Parenting Book Study
Between school pressures, extracurricular activities, homework, and demanding careers, it’s hard to find time just to get dinner on the table. In Mindful Parenting, child and family psychologist Dr. Kristen Race speaks directly to today’s busy families who make up what she calls “Generation Stress” and presents an alternative – a mindful approach. Drawing on the latest research, she shows how mindfulness helps us – and our children – feel happier, healthier, calmer, less anxious, less stressed, and more focused. Come discuss the book with your fellow parents.
As part of the book study discussions, we will explore
How the brain works and why parents and kids today are more stressed, anxious, and angry than ever before.
Practical solutions that parents can do to create a more relaxed and happier home.
Not able to attend the face-to-face discussions? No problem! We will be offering virtual discussion threads so that people can connect from home. Information about virtual discussion links will be sent to participants in January.
Can’t come to all book discussions? No problem! Feel free to join any or all of the discussions.
All parents who register will receive a copy of the book. Books may be picked up on December 10 in the Administration Center, 201 S. 7th Street from 10:00-11:00 a.m. or 5:30-6:30 p.m. If you are unable to pick up on December 10, please contact Dr. Cindy Ruesch at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Once again, we are asking for your support of this program for children at Christmas time. We are looking for new unwrapped toys and games and also will be accepting monetary contributions and gift cards to help make this Christmas a very special one.
Collection Boxes will arrive at Wredling next week - the week of November 12th
