Wolves Weekly Message

August 20th, 2021

Principal's Message

Dear Wakefield Middle School Families,


Wow! My heart is full! We had an amazing week preparing for the students' return to a more routine school year. I am so grateful that so many students were able to attend WolfCamp and Schedule Pick-Up. It quickly reminded exactly why we are here, for the students.


The theme we have developed for this school year is to build, from the ground up! We recognize that every student is entering school (in-person and virtually) in a different place, having had a different experience the past school year. We will make true and focused efforts to identify student needs and to BUILD relationships, BUILD trust, BUILD community, and BUILD understanding.


Please read the sections below to ensure that you have all the information you need to prepare for a great start to the school year. We look forward to seeing you all on Monday!


Sincerely,

Alison Cleveland

Principal

Face Coverings

Please be reminded that face coverings are required for all students when inside the building and on school transportation. They must be worn correctly over the nose and under the chin. This is a crucial factor in limiting the spread of COVID-19 and the requirement for students to have to quarantine in the case of an exposure.
