Dear Families of Frank Wagner Students,

During the week of May 4-8, we will be celebrating Staff Appreciation Week at
Frank Wagner. It is our privilege to serve the Frank Wagner community. I know
you join me in thanking and honoring the teachers and staff members working together at this wonderful school. I am so proud of the work done on a daily basis on behalf of our students by these talented people. Thank you for recognizing our dedicated educators and support staff. On behalf of my staff, we thank you for your support in making every person who works here at Frank Wagner feel so special during this week! Our Wildcat team is a very extraordinary group of people.

We are in the final weeks of our state testing in grades 4, 5 and 6. Third grade finished their testing this past week. Make ups will be completed by May 15th. Our students have done a great job of giving this new test their all. Please be sure to congratulate your child for a job well done! Thank you to our PTA and Mrs. Culnane’s daughter for securing snacks for our students during this testing time. Results should arrive later this spring.

As we see the end of the school year on the horizon, there are many events and activities on our school calendar. Thank you for sending you child to school on time, prepared to end the year strong. This month is filled with field trips, concerts, and assemblies to name just a few special events. June will also be busy with our 1st ever College Week from June 8th to 12th. We have planned an all school picnic, Field Day and our Volunteer Appreciation Luncheon during this week. Look for more details in next month’s newsletter. If you are interested in volunteering to help with Field Day or our picnic please contact your child’s teacher. We’d love your support.

Looking forward to the 2015-16 school year, our teacher teams are busy working on creating balanced classrooms. Thank you for those who filled out parent input
forms. We will be sending home letters in August notifying you of your child’s
teacher for next year. I am working on teacher assignments and am hopeful we can publish that information in next month’s newsletter. Please know these tasks are complicated and we are working to ensure the best possible configurations to support our students.

Thank you for your continued support of our Wildcats as we head into the final
stretch of the school year. I appreciate your partnership in building our community of learners here at Frank Wagner. I look forward to seeing you at some of our events coming up soon.

Estimadas familias de Frank Wagner,

Durante la semana del 4 al 8 de mayo, celebraremos la Semana de reconocimiento al personal en Frank Wagner. Es todo un privilegio asistir a la comunidad de Frank Wagner. Sé que me acompañarán a agradecer y reconocer la labor de los maestros y miembros del personal que trabajan juntos en esta maravillosa escuela. Me enorgullece mucho el trabajo que realizan a diario estas talentosas personas para nuestros estudiantes. Gracias por reconocer a nuestros dedicados educadores y personal auxiliar. De parte del personal,
les agradecemos su ayuda para hacer que todas las personas que trabajan en Frank Wagner se sientan muy especiales durante esta semana. Nuestro equipo Wildcat es un grupo de personas realmente extraordinarias.

Nos encontramos en las últimas semanas de nuestra evaluación estatal de 4.º, 5.º, y 6.º grado. Tercer grado finalizó su evaluación la semana pasada. Los recuperatorios se realizarán antes del 15 de mayo. Nuestros estudiantes se esforzaron mucho por dar lo mejor de sí en esta nueva evaluación. ¡Asegúrense de felicitar a sus niños por el buen trabajo que han hecho! Agradecemos a nuestra Asociación de Padres y Maestros (PTA) y a la hija de la Sra. Culnane por encargarse de los refrigerios para nuestros estudiantes durante el proceso de
evaluación. Deberíamos recibir los resultados más adelante, esta primavera.

A medida que se acerca el fin del año escolar, tenemos muchos eventos y actividades en nuestro calendario escolar. Gracias por enviar a sus hijos a la escuela a tiempo y preparados para finalizar el año de la mejor manera. Este mes está repleto de excursiones, conciertos y actos escolares, para nombrar solo algunos de los eventos especiales. Junio también será ajetreado, ya que celebraremos por primera vez la Semana universitaria, del 8 al 12 de junio. Durante esa semana tenemos planificado llevar a cabo un picnic para toda la escuela, un día de campo y nuestro Almuerzo de reconocimiento a los voluntarios. Encontrarán más información en el boletín informativo del próximo mes. Si les interesaría ofrecerse como voluntarios para ayudar con nuestro día de campo o nuestro picnic, comuníquense con el maestro de sus hijos. Nos encantaría recibir su colaboración.

Con miras al año escolar 2015-16, nuestros equipos de maestros están ocupados trabajando en crear aulas equilibradas. Les agradecemos a las personas que completaron nuestros formularios de comentarios de los padres.
Enagostoles enviaremos cartas notificándo les quiénserá el maestro de sus hijos el año siguiente. Estoy trabajando en la asignación de maestros y tengo confianza de que podremos publicar dicha información en el boletín informativo del próximo mes. Sepan que estas tareas son complejas y que estamos trabajando para asegurar las mejores configuraciones posibles para ayudar a nuestros estudiantes.

Gracias por su apoyo continuo con nuestros Wildcats a medida que nos acercamos a la recta final del año escolar. Les agradezco su colaboración para desarrollar nuestra comunidad de estudiantes en Frank Wagner. Espero verlos en algunos de nuestros próximos eventos.

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.
