Frank Wagner Elementary School

February 2017

From the desk of our principal,
Dear Frank Wagner Families,
A huge hug and thank you to all of the families that attended our Literacy Night on January 26th. What a spectacular evening! Our students continue to amaze us with their talents. I love the opportunity to visit with families and share what is happening in our classrooms. Frank Wagner is a productive and vibrant place to learn and grow and our family nights provide us an opportunity to let our kids shine brightly! Thanks to our staff and PTA for helping to make these family events happen. It was a fun night!

This month we will begin our ELPA (English Language Proficiency Assessment) and LAS (Language Assessment Scales) testing. Every student who has a home language other than English is assessed on speaking, listening, reading and writing using the ELPA assessment. Our dual language students are assessed using the LAS to measure acquisition of Spanish. ELPA Reports will be sent to families in the spring and LAS information will be shared at spring conferences. If you have questions don’t hesitate to contact your child’s classroom teacher or me for more information.

Just a reminder, we will host our Dual Language Kindergarten information night on Feb. 23rd in our school gym from 6:30 to 7:30 pm. Please share this information with your family, friends or neighbors that have a child who is entering kindergarten next year and might be a candidate for our Dual Language program.

If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact me atberardv@monroe.wednet.edu or at 360-804-3200.

¡Bienvenidos a Frank Wagner Elementary School y a un nuevo año escolar!

Del Escritorio de Nuestra Directora,
Estimadas Familias de Frank Wagner,
Un abrazo enorme y agradecimiento a todas las familias que asistieron a nuestra reunión nocturna de alfa-betización el 26 de enero. ¡Qué noche tan espectacular! Nuestros estudiantes siguen sorprendiéndonos con sus talentos. Me encanta tener la oportunidad de conversar con las familias y compartir lo que sucede en nuestras aulas. Frank Wagner es un lugar productivo y vibrante para aprender y crecer, y nuestras no-ches familiares nos brindan la oportunidad de que nuestros niños brillen intensamente. Gracias a nuestro personal y a la Asociación de padres y docentes (PTA, por sus siglas en inglés) por ayudarnos a hacer po-sible estos eventos familiares. ¡Fue una noche divertida!

Este mes comenzaremos nuestras pruebas ELPA (Evaluación de competencia del idioma inglés) y LAS (Escalas de evaluación del lenguaje). A cada alumno que posee un idioma familiar diferente al ingles se lo evalúa en el desempeño oral, auditivo y de lectoescritura mediante el uso de la evaluación ELPA. Los estudiantes bilingües son evaluados mediante el uso de LAS para medir su aprendizaje del idioma español. Los informes ELPA se enviarán a las familias durante la primavera y la información de LAS se compartirá en las conferencias de primavera. Si tienen preguntas no duden en comunicarse con el maestro/a de su hijo o conmigo para obtener más información.

Les recordamos que la noche informativa sobre nuestro Programa de instrucción bilingüe del kínder se rea-lizará el 23 de febrero, en el gimnasio de nuestra escuela, de 6:30 a 7:30 p. m. Compartan esta información con sus familias, amigos o vecinos que tengan un niño que esté por ingresar al kínder el próximo año y pueda ser candidato a nuestro programa de instrucción bilingüe.
Si tienen alguna pregunta o inquietud, no duden en comunicarse conmigo a berardv@monroe.wednet.edu o al 360-804-3200.

Important Notice About Internet Safety

The best way to protect children from online harm is to keep computers in a family area of the home. Visibility allows parents to look over the students' shoulders without being too oppressive. Young children should have a parental chaperone whenever they are on the Internet. Two sites that discuss these issues and offer advice can be found at www.safekids.com and www.safeteens.com.

Hyperlinks to staff web sites (located on the Staff page) are provided for student and parent convenience, and all staff web sites are hosted by external Internet service providers. Monroe Public Schools assumes no liability for content contained on external service provider sites. Filtering software from one of the providers listed below is recommended to prevent unauthorized access to sites beyond the District's control.
