    Kindergarten Orientation - June 7th, 2018

    On June 7th, 2018 from 6:15-7:15 pm in the Wedgwood cafeteria, the Wedgwood Kindergarten Team will hold an orientation night for new kindergarten families.  This event is for the parents of kindergarten students who will be starting at Wedgwood Elementary in the fall of the 2018-2019 school year.  The Kindergarten team will make a presentation about things to expect in kindergarten, ideas on how to prepare your child for kindergarten, and hold a question and answer session.  Principal Liu will also be on hand to answer any question you may have. 

    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).
