Wagner Update

News and Notes from Wagner Elementary - April 29th, 2015

Wagner Transition

As you may have heard, the Wagner building will be a preschool center next year. Lake Ripley School will house students K-4 and the Middle School will have grades 5-8. There will be more information to share in the next few weeks. In the meantime, all current Wagner students (both fourth and fifth graders) will be visiting the Middle School yet this spring to prepare for next year to get a welcome and a glimpse of what next year will bring.

iPad Device Check-in

All student learning devices will be checked in at the end of the school year so they can be prepared for next year. As part of the process, this Monday, May 4th, staff will be doing a pre-checkin on the devices. This letter explains the process in more detail, and the above image shows the checklist that we'll go over on Monday.

Basically though, we're asking all Wagner students to bring their chargers and cords along with their devices (students that leave their devices at school will not need to bring anything in) to school on Monday. Please remind your students and thanks for your help.

They enjoyed Dragon Lunch Bunch and said that...
