    I would like to thank our teachers and support staff for their hard work, engagement, and excitement around preparing for and launching our first day of school. We received many emails and messages from families that that their children had a positive experience connecting with their teachers and classmates this morning. Feel free to send your child’s teacher a message of gratitude if you feel inclined, we truly appreciate all the support!

    Additionally, the Wedgwood Staff created a video to welcome our students and families to the new year and can be viewed here: Wedgwood Staff Welcome Video
