Welcome to Wedgwood Elementary! Please join us at our upcoming open house and school tour on Tuesday, Jan 31st from 6:00 – 8:00pm to learn more about Wedgwood. This event is for incoming Kindergarten families and prospective families.

There will be a presentation by the Principal about the school and academics, an information school tour led by current parents, a presentation by the PTA President about ways families can get involved in the school, a presentation by afterschool programs about potential offerings and a Q&A session. Please click here for a copy of the presentation.

If you are not able to attend this event, families are more than welcome to visit Wedgwood and do a self-guided tour of the school. When you arrive, please check in at the Office. Unfortunately, due to the large volume of requests, we are not able to accommodate guided tours during this time.
