Dear Waddell Families,
What a wonderful winter we have had thus far! We want to thank our PTA for hosting family movie night! It was a huge success! We also would like to once again congratulate Neveah Mumley, Jordan Giangreco, and Samera Ali Alyosfi, three of our fifth grade students, on receiving the Martin Luther King Jr Award for Waddell School for their community projects!
Also in January, we have welcomed two new staff members: Ms. Michelle Lorentz to our Everyday Program and Ms. Chelcee Schroll to our fifth grade team. Furthermore, Mrs. Karen Taylor has transitioned to become a district-wide Enrichment Teacher who will also continue to work with our Waddell students with academic enrichment.
As we approach Valentine’s Day, I would like to remind families that if students intend to bring in valentines for their classmates, there must be enough for every student. Also, please be sure that food products of any kind are not a part of the card. Pencils, erasers, and stickers are great substitutes to candy and loved by all students.
Lastly, we hope you are able to join us in the upcoming month for school wide events such as Flashlight Reading, the UCONN basketball game, and the Science Fair. Our FRC is also hosting a Cops, Coffee, and Conversation night that will discuss social media safety for students and how you can help keep your children safe. Coffee, tea, and desserts will be provided. We hope to see you there!
