    Principal's Communications

    October 27, 2017
    Hello Wedgwood Families,

    Today, we had our Move-a-thon and some excellent weather for running on the playground track!  Thank you for supporting the Move-a-thon fundraiser, which supports Wedgwood Elementary, our staff, and students.  I had my running shoes on and tried to keep up with the students, and it was great to see all the enthusiasm our students and volunteers had for our school.  Thank you to our Move-a-thon volunteers for helping and to our Move-a-thon coordinators, Nassim Pietsch and Lisa Barnett, for all their work to make this a successful event and fundraiser! 

    Student Council elections will be taking place next week.  Teacher Sam has been video recording the student council candidate speeches to share with teachers.  Next week, teachers will show the video of candidate speeches to their class and then pass out ballots for voting.  Voting results will be announced at the end of the school day on Friday, November 3rd.  Candidates will be notified before the school-wide announcement and every candidate will be given a Marmot Card for being responsible.  It takes courage and organization to run for student council at Wedgwood!

    This past Tuesday, we had close to 300 dads, father-figures, and students who showed up to enjoy some pizza and to hear about how we can get more adult male role models to volunteer at Wedgwood.  If you were not able to attend our Watch DOGS pizza night, please follow this link to learn more about the program and to sign-up for a volunteer day at Wedgwood this school year. 

    Thank you to all the parents that attended the first Principal’s Coffee yesterday.  One thing I shared at the Coffee was that I will be sending out another survey for Wedgwood parents and guardians to give me and the school feedback on the things that are going well and the things that we can do to improve.  Please look for this survey to be emailed out to you in early November. 

    Thank you for supporting Wedgwood!  Go Marmots!
