Wiggin Street Parent Update
May 6, 2022
This has been a great week of celebrating our Wiggin Street Teachers and Staff! We are incredibly lucky to have some caring individuals working with your students each day. Thank you to all that contributed, and a special thank you to Jenn Grassbaugh, Friends of Wiggin Street President, and her kids for all her early morning surprises for staff.
Also, today is School Lunch Hero Day, and Mary Ann Walker is the best! She cares for each student as if they were her own. We are blessed to have her here at Wiggin Street.
Please notice that next Friday, May 13th, is our End of the Year Picnic during lunch. The school lunch will be hotdogs, orange and apple slices, carrots, and cookies with milk. If your child needs an alternative lunch, please provide them with a packed lunch that day.
Enjoy this week's update with lots of pictures. The next 3 weeks will be full of fun activities as we wrap up the school year! Have a nice weekend.
