Thank you Families

Thank you Wegienka families for your continued support during this unique time. Our professional team is spending hours each week preparing for the learning that you are facilitating at home. We appreciate your patience as we navigate these uncharted learning experiences.Our school resources occasionally look different at home. Sometimes you may find that you are unable to get a link to work, a video to play or even a website to load properly. Please let your teacher know and we will work on getting it fixed. Our technology department has been outstanding and we appreciate all of their help. If you reach us outside of school hours, we will work on it the next day and get back with you. More than anything, we really want to hear from parents/students and that although we would love to hear from you daily, we need to hear from you at least once a week. We want to make sure you are ok. :)

Items from Student Desks

During the week of April 20th, we had two different opportunities for parents to drive up to school and get student belongings. If you did not make it, please email Mrs. Redwine redwinn@wbsdweb.com . She will be happy to make arrangements with you.


As we strive to create balanced classrooms that are most beneficial for all students we take many things into consideration. In this process, staff members meet to discuss and decide where the students should be placed for the next school year. There are several factors that we consider: achievement levels, gender, past retention, sibling and student combination, balance of class size, student’s learning style, special instructional need, and other reasons deemed important by the staff.

A Parent/Guardian request for a specific educational setting will be taken into consideration, but is not guaranteed.

Please be careful when deciding to request a specific teacher for your child. An educational request will only be honored one time during the child’s educational years at Wegienka Elementary School.


1. Request forms will be emailed to parents on April 13, 2020.

2. All requests are due no later than Wednesday, May 8, 2020.

3. Parents/Guardians must return the form by email to Mrs. Briegel at briegem@wbsdweb.com

4. Requests must be in writing, signed, and dated. If a request is turned in after May 8th it will not be considered.

5. Requests are not being guaranteed due to the many factors that are considered. We reserve the right to assign specific classrooms and teachers.

6. Written requests must include academic and educational reasons as to why the request is being made.

7. Remember that a request will only be honored one time during a child’s educational years (this includes Kindergarten) at Wegienka Elementary School. This means that if your child is put in the classroom of the teacher that you requested this year, you will not be able to request another teacher for that child as they get older.

With all things being equal, requests, if honored, will be honored on a first come/first serve basis. When the request form is returned, it will be dated and numbered. While we will do our best to honor requests, designing balanced classrooms that will benefit our students most, is our first priority. If your request cannot be granted, we hope that you will respect our decision as it is in the best interest of all students.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions about this process.
