The portion of the day not spent at field day should be spent on maintaining as close to a regular schedule as possible. This is dependent on weather. In the event of inclement weather-field day will be canceled.

Summer Home Visits

Home visits are a powerful way to connect with your incoming students and families. Last summer, all kindergarten students received a home visit from their teacher. This year, in addition to visiting kindergarten students, we would like to expand the opportunity to all teachers interested. Home visits will be done in pairs. This opportunity is open to all Wickersham Staff members. This could possible be an OAA/extra pay opportunity for 2016-2017 school year. Indicate your interest and potential availability here: http://goo.gl/forms/gXZmUfH6jHaUDiTG2
