Greetings Wheelock Families!
I hope you are enjoying some wonderful May weather as we head into a long weekend. It was a good feeling to see many of our students and staff dressed for Patriotic Day in honor of Memorial Day.
Kudos to our grade 3 students! The character impersonations were awesome this year! You outdid yourselves with the costumes and you knew a lot about your Massachusetts historical figures! We even received a tweet from Uzo Aduba and had a great photo op with Kristine Lilly. Enjoy some photos:
Everyone who attended always has a great time! Abby Kranker won the Guess the Estimation Jar Challenge. Thank you to Mrs. Laliberte, Mrs. Carey, Mrs. Sheehan, Miss Melville, Mrs. Newton, Mrs. McNeil, Ms. Connolly, Miss Hevey, Mrs. Lynn and Mrs. Callahan for their participation. It was fun!
A Walk for Joey
Please read about our special assembly on June 4th and our Walk for Joey on June 12th in the Flash this week. I have been reading Emmanuel's Dream to our students to prepare them for the assembly which will feature Heather Abbott and Craig Woodhams, two individuals who have physical disabilities. For more information, take a look at he Flash.
Congratulations to Grace Wang upon receiving the Robert C. Maguire Global Awareness MCPE Award. The MCPE annual meeting was quite enjoyable. Many thanks to all of the community members who do so much for our schools! A Special thank you to Inger Kenworthy, our Wheelock Grant Representative for the 2017-2018 school year.
I hope everyone enjoys the Memorial Day Weekend!
