Anne Wien Announcements

School Newsletter for Week of March 15, 2021

Dear Anne Wien Elementary Families,

Welcome back to school! We hope you all had an AWEsome Spring Break! With the added sunlight glistening off of all of the snow, the spring days always become so noticeably brighter at this time of year. After a week of staying up later and sleeping in later, though, along with yesterday's Daylight Saving Time causing us to lose an hour of sleep, my own family sure did struggle with getting up for school again today, so thank you all for getting your River Otters up and out of the house on time this morning. That was NOT an easy task! We worked on getting back into school routines today as we started 4th Quarter and are looking to a strong final 9 weeks of school!

Congratulations, District Science Fair participants!

We congratulate the following students for representing Anne Wien and earning a spot at the District Science Fair:

  • Iris Bright for her Scientific Report: "Cars vs. Bikes"
  • Julianna Celaire for her Demonstration of a Scientific Principal: "Making Ice Cream in a Bag"
  • Cooper Raymond for his Demontration of a Scientific Principal: "Rising Water"

Register for school for this year AND NEXT YEAR

We are pleased to have River Otters returning to school for 4th Quarter! Please know that it takes at least 48 hours to change from eLearning or Remote Learning to In-Person schooling so that we can get classrooms safe and ready for students. Once they've made the change, we are also encouraging families to stay with this decision for the remainder of the school year to maintain consistency in your child's education.

Also, we're encouraging all families to register for school NOW for NEXT school year. Anne Wien has a typical enrollment of 400 students but we are currently just under 300 students. If this holds through the fall, this would mean a loss of 4 classroom teachers next school year and a loss of other activities and programs. Registering for school now will allow our school district to solidly plan for next school year. Thank you for helping to get the word out to your friends and neighbors!
