The Importance of Student Recognition
All of us want to be seen and heard. We want to be recognized for the good things we do and the effort we put forth. Middle school students are no different! At Wredling, we look at several ways to recognize students.
Honor Roll: recognizes students for grades
RedHawk Pride Award: recognized for students for a wide variety of reasons that teachers decide upon, from academic improvement to kindness. This is our program to recognize a wide group of students for many reasons. We give students a certificate and a RedHawk Pride lanyard and publish their names in our Friday Forecast.
Assemblies: In our assemblies, we recognize students for the 4 As- academics, activities, athletics, and the arts.
Team Awards: At different times during the year some of our teams recognize students for a variety of reasons.
In Class: Our teachers recognize the hard work and effort of our students through specific praise. This is something we look for in our observation of teachers.
It is important to recognize academics, but for all students, it is important to recognize their effort, kindness, and the many other great things they do at school.
Enjoy your weekend!

If you have photos of your student and their peers in WMS sponsored concerts, plays, sports events or other club activities, please email them to Mr. Massie for submission to the yearbook at firstname.lastname@example.org.
You can also submit directly from your phone with THIS LINK! You will need to use the access code "redhawks". Thanks for sharing your memories with the yearbook club.
End of the 2nd Quarter is Approaching!
The 2nd quarter is quickly coming to an end on Wednesday, December 21st. Please take a few minutes to make sure that your child’s assignments are in. If you have any questions, please contact your child’s teachers.
Due to allergies and asthma, we are asking that students not use perfume or cologne at school. For those with allergies and asthma, perfumes and colognes can be a trigger and can cause an attack. If students shower regularly and use deodorant, they should not have a need for cologne or perfume. Thank you for helping us keep kids safe and healthy at Wredling!
The Peer Leadership Program for Incoming St. Charles East Freshmen
Dear Parents of 8th Graders Attending East,
Peer Leadership is an extracurricular program that matches selected incoming freshmen with juniors and seniors who make the transition into high school fun and easy and mentor them throughout the year. Because this program meets during the school day, it has to be put into a student’s schedule when registering for next year’s classes. Although we would like to be able to offer this to all interested incoming freshmen, our numbers are limited by available classroom space and our budget. Therefore, in order to start the selection process, interested students should apply using the application found below in this Friday Forecast.
If your child is interested in the program, please fill out the application and e-mail it to Jim Reed, the Peer Leadership Coordinator (James.Reed@d303.org). Completed applications must be received no later than Tuesday, January 17th, 2023. For more information about Peer Leadership, please attend Future Saints Night in January.
We hope to hear from you!

Attention 8th Grade Families:
Eighth graders, are you looking for a high school experience that offers:
the chance to join a small learning community?
a choice and voice in learning activities?
opportunities to explore career pathways?
project-based seminars with hands-on learning?
a flexible schedule with a later start or earlier end to the day?
If any of these criteria match your academic goals or vision for school, Compass Academy could be an excellent option for you. Compass Academy students can choose to attend either part-time or full-time at Compass, and they still have access to courses, sports, activities, and events at St. Charles East/North as well.
To learn more about Compass, please attend the Open House on December 13th from 6:30-8:00 pm. This brief information video may also provide helpful information.
