    Please visit SPS admissions site here for more information on 2017-2018 enrollment.

    Kindergarten school supplies at Wedgwood

    In an effort to promote a sense of community, classroom materials will be purchased for the group and shared. Purchasing in bulk through the district, gives us a better price than you would probably find going to multiple places, shopping the back-to-school sales. The supply fee of $80 will be paid to the office in the fall and covers your child’s class supplies and Technology fee for the year.
