Welleby Elementary: Weekly Tidbits

Week of April 4, 2016

A Word from Ms. Haynes

Greetings Parents,


Can you believe it’s already the first week of April? We have one week of testing completed and next week, our 4th and 5th grade students will be doing another round of testing. Thank you for getting your child to school on time—we had minimal make up tests to complete.


This week, our 2nd graders will be taking the COGAT Test, please be sure you child is in school on time, especially Monday through Wednesday. Don’t forget that our Kindergarten Round Up is Friday, April 8th in the Welleby Café at 8:30AM. Please tell your neighbors and friends to join us.


This next message is important for parents of our Kindergarten through 3rd grade students. You should have received a document inviting you to have your child participate in a free dental cleaning. If you have missed your child’s dental appointment or have not made one, this service is being offered to our students free of charge. Please return the form by Wednesday, April 6th if you would like your child to participate in this service.


Finally, our PTA will be having another Dollar Day Fundraiser on Friday. It’s “Crazy Sock” Day—find those crazy socks and bring in $1 to support this PTA Fundraiser. We want to wish all of our families a wonderful and amazing first week of April!

Have a Marvelous Week!!
Ms. Haynes
