Hello! This is Superintendent Wells checking in.
I am so excited about the 2023-2024 school year, and I want to extend a warm welcome to everyone! Whether you are returning to our schools or joining us for the first time, we are thrilled to have you.
Our first announcement is that new this year, we are offering both full and half-day slots for preschool at no cost for most families. Slots are going fast, and if you know parents of 3-5-year-old children in the community, please encourage them to apply soon.
Next, this year’s theme is Relationships Always Matter and we will be exceptionally focused on this theme with our staff, students, family, and school community. As a first step in building, we will continue to strengthen the partnership between home and school by continuing our home visits which you may have seen featured on the news a couple of weeks ago.
Over the next 100 days, our staff and volunteers will make home visits to drop off resources, welcome everyone back to the new school year, and answer any questions you may have. Please note that our volunteers will have their “Here To Serve” shirts on. We look forward to seeing our students and families!
Next, along these same lines, we want to make sure ALL of our parents and guardians remain connected and can access important information. If you are a parent or guardian, please plan to update and/or sign up for the Infinite Campus parent portal. The parent portal is a vital resource for communicating emergency information, weather delays, grades, attendance, and more! Additional information will be given at the back-to-school events this week. If you need assistance receiving your login information you can email [email protected]
Thank you for your time and engagement with this message. If you have any questions about the information shared, please check out our website or call your child’s school. Innovation in WCS is the catalyst for success and student achievement and together we will make this an amazing year! Welcome back and go Rams!
