Wasco Families,

Grade Level Music Performances are back! This week Wasco hosted the Third Grade Music Performance. It is the return of a longstanding tradition, in which selected grade levels perform for their families. We keep the grade level consistent, so all our families have an opportunity to participate.

We loved hosting your families and gathering as a school community to celebrate the accomplishments of the students. I am so proud of their hard work to learn the songs, music content and techniques, and showing off their cooperation skills.

We have some upcoming events, the Talent show, Field Day, baseball games and more! We want to make sure you feel welcomed and encouraged to participate in our social and school programming. Your attention to the students in your child's grade level creates a “village” of support and helps us develop a strong learning community with exposure to a wide variety of talents and interests. If you are inclined, please connect with our PTO or the front office to share your time and talents with us. We would love to have you at Wasco to help with an upcoming event or just to socialize with us.

If you have any suggestions or questions, please contact me.

Kind Regards,

Principal Stephanie Brennan

Message From The Wellness Team

Big picture

Hello! I am Mr. Secor of the Wasco Wellness Team, and I just wanted to share with you that the month of March is also “Fruit and Vegetable Month!” So this week, our Wasco Wellness Team members thought that it would be a fun idea to give you some information on fruits and vegetables that you may or may not have heard of before! Without further ado, here it goes! See the link below.

Cougars Reading Club

Beginning February 6, 2023 and ending March 31, 2023 Wasco will be participating in Cougars Reading Club, a reading incentive sponsored by the Kane County Cougars baseball team. Your child will have the opportunity to improve his or her reading skills while earning a ticket to a Cougar game! See the attached link below for more information.

How to Report Absences

Absences should be called in by 7:45 AM if your child will be absent for any portion of the day. The number is 331-228-2900 and has voicemail. You can call during the evening or overnight and leave a message. Please leave your child’s name and the reason why your child is out. If they are ill, please indicate their symptoms. Even if you notify your child's teacher of an absence via email, we ask that you please still notify the office.

Also, if your child attends Baker Station, please remember to notify them if your child will not be attending.

Dismissal Plans

Families, If your child is not following their regular dismissal plan (riding the bus, picked up from school, or staying after for a program), would you please be sure to provide me with the information in a note? If you are emailing, please also include our school office staff candace.thoke@d303.org, so that information is shared in a timely manner. Informing us helps us ensure the safety of the kids.
