WMS Friday Forecast
April 29, 2022
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!
Way to Go Kailey Gordon!
8th Grade End-of-Year Celebrations
We are working with our PTO to plan our 8th-grade end-of-year celebrations. We have three fun events planned!
On Tuesday, May 24th we will host an 8th-grade Dance and Social in the early evening. We will need a large number of volunteers to make this dance successful, so look for information soon! Our theme is "Hollywood!" There will be a $10 charge for this event, though all students on free and reduced lunch will receive a complimentary ticket. More information to follow in late April
On Wednesday, May 25th in the morning, we will hold an 8th-grade awards ceremony at the Norris Cultural Arts Center. All parents are welcome, but we specifically invite those whose children will be receiving an award.
On Wednesday, May 25 our PTO will host a lunch for our 8th-grade students. Again, we will need plenty of volunteers for this event, so look for information soon.
Help - Computer Wanted!
Online Registration for Next Year
Returning Student Registration for 2022-2023 is once again an online format. All acknowledgments and authorizations are contained in a single electronic, online registration form. Please complete this by June 1st!
The form is located in the Parents/Community menu of the District website and on our Wredling website under Parents/Registration Materials. Parents can sign into the Returning Student Online Registration form using their Home Access Center (HAC) credentials, select individual students, and complete their registration.
Registration fees for all students will not be billed in PushCoin until July 1, 2022. A 2022-2023 district fee waiver application will be available on the District 303 website in July, accessible from the Parent/Community menu, for families who may qualify for a fee waiver and are not directly certified by the state.
Please contact the main office if you have any questions at (331) 228-3700
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.
