Wakefield Hills Elementary School

Weekly Update 11/16/15-11/20/15

Happy last five day school week of November! The 50th day of school was a fun day for all last week. As I visit classrooms I am impressed by the many lessons being taught that integrate technology. The students at all grade levels seem to use the technology with ease!
