Meet our New Assistant Principal!

Welcome (Back) Dr. McGuire! Below is a short write up from our new third Assistant Principal, who will be joining our Wredling family (again) this summer. We are all very excited that Dr. McGuire is returning home!!!

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

After venturing off to be an assistant principal in Woodridge School District 68 for the past year, I'm excited to return to District 303 and Wredling as the new assistant principal. Prior to this year, I worked for 13 years in St. Charles primarily as a classroom teacher at both the elementary and middle school level. I'm looking forward to working with the students, staff, and parents at Wredling again soon. Please feel free to stop in and say hello. In my free time I enjoy spending time with my family, fishing, traveling to our cabins in Wisconsin, as well as cheering on my favorite sports teams.

PICK UP YOUR SCHOOL MEDICATIONS

DEAR PARENTS/GUARDIANS:


ALL MEDICATION (both over-the-counter & prescription) that is stored in the health office for student use must be picked up by the end of the school day on June 5th. All medication that is not picked up will be discarded through our commercial medical waste disposal service. Compliance with local, state and federal regulations necessitates that we dispose of all medication safely and promptly.


Thank you for your assistance in this matter.
Your Health Services Team

Parent University - May 21st

Addressing Questions and Challenging Issues while Emphasizing and Demonstrating Self-Care Strategies for Parents

May 21, 2018-Parent University brought to you by Centennial Counseling

6:00-8:00 p.m. - St. Charles Public Library


Community Mental Health Panel. Local clinicians, including representatives from District 303, Riverview Counseling, Creekwood Associates, and Centennial Counseling Center, will be on hand to answer questions about challenging parental issues, while emphasizing and demonstrating self-care strategies for parents on the front line.

Summer is around the corner and we understand that some students may feel anxious about what that brings – different structure in their day, meeting new friends at camp, thinking about moving to a new school next year, or making the move to middle or high school.

Our experts will provide strategies for parents to help their children navigate these changes. Questions may be submitted at the time of registration, or during the session.
