    Kindergarten Orientation - June 4th, 2019

    This is an opportunity for Kindergarten Parents to learn more about Wedgwood’s Kindergarten program through a whole group presentation and Q&A with the Kindergarten Teachers and the Principal.  This event will take place in the Wedgwood cafeteria and the orientation is primarily for parents of incoming kindergarten students to Wedgwood.  If families are unable to find childcare during the orientation, there will be some quiet activities in the back of the cafeteria for children who attend.  We hope to see you Tuesday the 4th!

    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. Families are being asked to pay a supply fee in the fall that will cover your a student's class supplies and Technology fee for the year.  Families will be expected to provide a backpack and lunchbox (if applicable).
