1. Thank you to all our students, parents/guardians and staff at Wildwood School for an exciting year that revolved around Oral Literacy! Spend time this summer to have many conversations, ask questions and share any and every story your can. Take time to enjoy those you love!!
2. Every student received the novel “What We Found in the Sofa and How It Saved the World.” We are hoping everyone will read this novel or have an adult read it to the children. The couch is in the Wild Woods for you to sit on and read. Send in your photo of you reading the novel on your summer holidays and be entered into our contest: email@example.com
3. If you are looking for a small outdoor activity this summer our Stewardship garden is looking for individuals, or families to water and weed our garden this summer. The food will be donated to the Food Bank in the fall. Any help is so appreciated to support our students that have worked all year to keep the yards and garden looking good!! Thank you to Janis Romeskie who has so graciously volunteered to be the coordinator of this for the summer. Please email Janis if you are able to help with the garden. It is mostly about keeping the weeds away!!!
4. First day back will be September – 5th – Please make sure the office has your correct phone number so the teachers can contact families before the long weekend to welcome them to their class.
6. Please see the attachment for our tentative staff list for next year. We look forward to continuing our work with Oral Literacy with a focus on Disciplinary Literacy as we extend our understanding to design and promote great learning opportunities for our students!
7.
