Self-Compassion in a Time of Criticism:

Our partners at Riverview Counseling provide videos for our families each month. This month's video resonates as we think about self-compassion in a world that can be very critical. I thought you might enjoy watching these videos.

Dear Wredling Parents and Guardians

Each year we send out the Illinois 5-Essentials Survey to gather input from parents and guardians, staff, and students about how we are doing here at WMS. We use the data we gather to improve communication, find ways to engage students at a higher level and improve student learning.

I am hoping you can take 7-10 minutes to complete this survey for me. It is very simple to complete. And not only do we find the information valuable, but it is a required part of our ESSA (Every Student Succeeds Acts).

Here is the link to the survey. Parents and guardians can take the survey in Spanish or English. Please note that students will also be taking this survey.


Thank you!

Tim Loversky, Principal

Wake Up Call Presentation

The Wake Up Call presentation, a program of Your Choice, on February 2, 2021 provided practical information on current drug trends, a walk-through of a teens' bedroom with more than 20 red flags that could indicate substance abuse, and proactive parenting strategies to keep your child substance free.


The presenters, all with lived experience, combined their personal stories, experience working with students and families, and shared things they wish they would've known into an engaging, real and unique presentation. If you were not able to attend, please click on this link to view the presentation.

8th Grade End-of-Year Celebrations:

We have had a few parents ask us about what these will look like. Currently, we are planning that our awards celebration will be done virtually and sent out via video. We have not yet explored what other end-of-year celebrations may look like. As we get closer to that time, we will keep you up to date.

MIDDLE SCHOOL TRANSFERS - REQUEST PERIOD OPEN FROM FEB. 1 - FEB. 26


Families who wish to submit a Middle School Transfer request may do so beginning February 1, 2021. Families must complete a separate form for each student they want to be transferred. Requests are granted based on space available. This means that siblings are not guaranteed placement. A written decision will be communicated to families before spring break.


Once the request is approved, a student may remain at that middle school throughout his or her middle school career, as long as the student resides in District 303.


Families of students granted permission to attend a school outside of their assigned attendance area are responsible for their own transportation.

Students will return to their assigned attendance area high school regardless of the middle school attended.

The Middle School Transfer request window will close at 4:00pm on February 26, 2021.

If you have questions, please contact Tammy Marsan at: 331-228-2397.
