Hello WMS Parents and Guardians

In schools, we spend most of our time teaching reading and math, and our other subjects. But in teaching students, we also teach generosity. This past week our students learned a lot about generosity as they saw the pile of school supplies for Ukrainian refugees in Poland grow and grow. By the end of the week, the pile was 4 feet tall and 6 feet long!


Seeing that generosity lets our students know that as a community we care about others. I feel fortunate to work in a community where kindness and generosity are valued!


Enjoy your weekend!

Thank You!

A huge shout-out and a heart-felt thank you to the families of WMS who so generously supported WMS Student Council's school supply drive for Ukrainian children. Once again, you've demonstrated your kindness with action and you will make a difference to the Ukrainian refugees who are being welcomed in Poland. The Student Council appreciates you!!

Arbor Day

Today we celebrate the 150th anniversary of Arbor Day. The St. Charles Natural Resource Commission brought us a Redpointe Maple and students from Mrs. Franklin's 3rd-period science class helped us plant the tree in the back of our school near our pond. Students read about the history of Arbor Day and also read a poem about maple trees. A special thanks to the St. Charles Natural Resource Commission for donating the maple and helping us to celebrate Arbor Day 2022!

A Reminder from the School Nurse

State legislation requires that all Illinois children in Sixth Grade will have a dental examination. A licensed dentist must perform the examination, and he or she shall sign the form. Dental offices should have the form available, but it is also available online at www.d303.org under Departments, then Health Services, then “Health Documents and Forms”. Each 6th grade student must present proof of a dental examination by a dentist prior to May 15, 2022. The exam must be dated within 18 months prior to May 15, 2022. If your child has had an exam already, you can ask your dentist to complete the form for the exam.


The Illinois Department of Public Health has established a waiver for children who show undue burden or lack of access to a dentist. Parents or legal guardians who object to the dental examinations on religious grounds shall present to the school a signed, detailed statement of the objection.


The deadline is quickly approaching! Please submit this if you have not already done so. If you have any questions, please contact the WMS nurses at 331-228-3704.

Important Safety Reminder for WMS Parents

When it comes to issues that concern students and/or school safety: “If you see something, say something - immediately”. On a school day during staffed hours (7:30-4:00), the student, parent, or community member should call the school and/or seek an administrator ASAP for prompt action. If this information emerges outside of the school day, please call 911 immediately. The safety and wellbeing of our Wredling family are always our top priority!
