Dear Parents and Guardians:
Spring break starts today! Many of you are traveling and relaxing with your RedHawks. During spring break I would challenge your student to a) relax, b) read a book, and c) learn at least one thing new each day. Those things can happen no matter where you are!
May you have a relaxing week with your student!

ID Expectations for Middle Schools:
ID Expectations for Middle Schools: D303 has set clear expectations that all middle school students wear IDs on a lanyard at all times. If a student does not have an ID/lanyard, they will need to purchase a new set for $5 in the LRC. The $5 fee will be charged to your child's PushCoin account. This can add up very quickly if a student does not have their ID several times. Please be sure to talk to your student about showing responsibility by wearing their lanyards at all times, and so that they understand the financial implications of having to buy replacement lanyards.
You should also check their PushCoin accounts routinely for added fees now owed. Login to PushCoin and check under the fees tab for charges. Parents do receive a notification every time a charge is entered into their student’s PushCoin account. If you check under the “Wallet” instead of the “Fees” tab, you may not see the new charges.

Good Afternoon Wredling Parents/Guardians!
This is just a reminder that Wredling students will be taking the Illinois Assessment of Readiness (IAR) on the following dates: April 12 - 14th. We will be taking IAR during two chunks of our day; one in the morning and one in the afternoon. Our building will be running an adapted schedule on those days. Please see the letter below from Mr. Dave Chiszar, the D303 Director of Assessment and Accountability. Students who are eligible to take DLM do not participate in IAR testing. If you have questions, please reach out to your child's case manager.
Please make sure your child is well-rested, has a good breakfast, and is on time to school on these dates. This will help set them up for success as they take these tests. They will also need to bring the following items to school with them for each day of testing:
Chromebook FULLY charged and ready to go
Earbuds - (check to ensure they are working, please)
Book to read (Hard Copy)
Note: If you have questions regarding IAR testing, please feel free to contact David Chiszar, Director of Assessment & Accountability, at (331) 228-4911 or your child’s grade level counselor. Please click here to access the Wredling Middle School counselor contact information.
Thank you for your assistance as we prepare for these assessments.
Mrs. Francesca Favero
Wredling Middle School

Please click here for more information about the search for a new Superintendent.
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.

ELLA, A MODERN CINDERELLA STORY
A modern take on the classic fairytale Cinderella, CTE’s original show, Ella is perfect for a 21st century audience! It’s the “classic” tale of a young girl becoming victim to her wicked stepmother and stepsisters’ evil whims. Ella’s life becomes one of drudgery until she can escape and fall in love. Of course, that’s how the story goes, but what twists and turns will CTE take in its reimagined version? You’ll have to come see the show to find out!
