PTA Fun Run Rescheduled for February

Our PTA Fun Run has been rescheduled for February. More information will be coming as the event planning gets underway.

Library Volunteers Needed

Calling all Parents and Grandparents! We are in great need of volunteer assistance in our new library. Any amount of time you are willing to donate would be appreciated. We need help checking in and shelving books on Monday's and Thursday's. Time are flexible and there is no weekly commitment.

Please Tracy Smith if you are available at

Math Resource Site

Did you know that every Elementary School in Wauwatosa has a Math Instructional Coach? Our instructional coach, John Silverthorne, works in classrooms with teachers to support student learning.

To support learning at home, he has created a math website with links to math games and a math discussion board. Take a look, join in the discussion or practice math skills using some of the games linked in.

Happy Math Thinking!
