A Message from the Principal
August 26, 2018
Dear WES Students and Families,
Welcome back! It's hard to believe that we are at the start of the 2018-2019 school year. I hope that you have enjoyed your summer vacation and are looking forward to continuing to learn and grow at Wayne Elementary. There's much excitement ahead of us as you continue to build on existing friendships, as well as, meet new friends to work, play, and build memories. You will continue to explore and extend your interests, while discovering new ones. All staff at Wayne Elementary look forward to sharing in these moments with you and your family.
We have been working diligently to prepare for the upcoming school year and your return. Throughout this year we will continue to do our best to nurture and maintain a safe and caring learning environment that is inclusive and welcoming to students, staff, and families. We will continue to grow our partnership between school and home built on trust and collaboration as well as open, honest, and respectful communication.
It is our hope that even in our busiest schedules, we take time to appreciate each other and remember that every great journey begins with a single step. We encourage you to fully embrace those “ordinary moments” as they pave the road for what lies ahead and make memories that will last a lifetime.
On the first day of school you will receive a folder with pertinent information and dates for the school year to help you plan. Many of these dates are, and will be posted on the district as well as school web page.
When you arrive on Tuesday, September 4 we will all meet on the secondary playground. Your teacher for grades 1-5 will be holding up a sign to identify themselves, as well as have a copy of the class list to make sure everyone is accounted for. If you are a new Kindergarten student your first full day will be Thursday, September 6 and your classroom teacher will meet you in front of the building on that day.
We look forward to seeing you soon!
Mrs. Nancy Ferguson
