Dear Wheelock Families,
I hope you've enjoyed this spring weather. It is great to see the children playing outside.
We've had another busy week.
On Wednesday, March 27th, a group of Wheelock teachers and I joined our moderator, Mr. Kuehl, to judge the annual MCPE Spelling Bee. We had such fun and the children did a great job!
Getting Ready for MCAS
Our students are ready! We have been hard at work practicing using our chromebooks in preparation for ur first MCAS. We work very hard to keep our children relaxed. We simply encourage our students to do their best. Please see the MCAS letter sent home on Tuesday that provides some helpful tips. A big thank you to Tania Manuel and our Technology Department for all of their help!
Ben Franklin Presentation
Ben Franklin came to visit today! This re-enactment is so realistic. The presentation always is informative and entertaining. Thank you PTO for your help!
Today you received our annual letter inviting you to provide input to us about your student. We value your input and it is so helpful, but sometimes there are aspects of the requests that limit our abilities to create balanced classrooms. Due to the complexity of the process, we may not be able to honor your desires. Please know we pay careful attention to the placement process. It begins May 10th and continues on for weeks. It is a complicated jigsaw puzzle and many staff emmbers are involved. We take it seriously and we try to provide each and every student equal consideration, with or without a letter, as we plan for the next school year.
I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!
