Wiggin Street Parent Update
May 26, 2023
Dear Wiggin Street Families,
This, being the last full week of school, was packed with fun times! Enjoy the many pictures from the week.
We will be wrapping up the year next week with a quick flag ceremony Tuesday morning in honor of Memorial Day. Then, we have the 5th grade vs. Staff Hockey Game at 2:00. If you are coming to watch the game, you may want to bring some ear plugs. The kids get very excited and the acoustics are not great in our gym. We are hoping that some of the issues will be remedied this summer. As for the hockey game, the first puck will drop no later than 2:15, so you will want to get a seat on the bleachers before that time.
The last day of school will include Kindergarten graduation at 9:30 am and 5th grade graduation at 10:30 am. There will be a quick 5th grade practice at 9:00 am, so Kindergarten parents will need to wait till 9:15 to take a seat. The all school 5th grade Clap Out will be at 11:45, and all students will be dismissed from school at 1:30 pm for the 2-hour early dismissal.
Lastly, we want to take this moment to recognize Mrs. Ballard for all the care and love she has shown Wiggin Street students over the years. She is retiring this year, and we are so happy for her that she can spend more time with her family, including her dogs, and travel more. We wish her the best.
Enjoy the long weekend.
