Frank Wagner Elementary School

June 2016

Dear Parents of Frank Wagner Wildcats,

June is upon us and we have much to accomplish before our final school day on
June 21st. Special school events this year include College Week from June 13 to
June 17th.

  • We look forward to hosting all of our volunteers for Breakfast in our East Gym on June 14 from 8:15 to 9:30 a.m. Student supervision is offered in our West Gym. I look forward to seeing you there. We appreciate the dedication of our school volunteers this year especially our PTA chaired by Mrs. Gena Weeks this past year. We appreciate and thank all our volunteers for the countless hours involved in assisting in the classrooms, attending field trips and supporting school efforts to build our school bookroom and extending access to technology for FWES students as well as so many of the behind the scenes activities.
  • Field Day volunteers needed for June 14th for Primary and Intermediate events. Please see the attached flyer for times.
  • All School Picnic on Wednesday, June 15th. Please join your student for a
    school lunch served under the covered area. Our food services manager will be grilling up hamburgers and hot dogs.

I am pleased to announce that our school has received a $200,000 playground
grant with the help of Devlin Piplic, the Monroe school district Director of Facilities.
Our students have written persuasive letters to help determine what new equipment we order. Students from ASB read the letters and helped me to decide what would best meet our students’ wants and needs. Installation should be completed by fall and a new playground in place in the yellow playground area, ready for us come September 8th. We are all looking forward to the new playground equipment.

Our school remodel teams are being formed and if you are interested in participating on a steering committee please contact our school office. The team will be meeting over the summer to develop the plans for our school. There will be other opportunities to participate throughout the process.

This has been a fantastic school year filled with fun events that have brought us
closer together. We would like to thank you for your on-going support throughout the year. We could not offer such amazing educational experiences to our students without the continuing effort and support that you all give.

With the end of the year also comes family moves. We would like to take this opportunity to wish those students and families leaving us this year all the best in their new schools and homes.

We look forward to the adventures that year three brings to Hugo and me for 2016-17. Our teacher team is busy planning now for an exciting new year at Frank Wagner. Until then, enjoy the last few glorious days of school. Have a wonderful summer with your kiddos until we see you all again on September 1st for our Back to School Event.

Estimados padres de los Wildcats de Frank Wagner:

Se acerca junio y tenemos mucho que hacer antes de nuestro último día de clases, el 21 de junio. Los eventos escolares especiales de este año incluyen la Semana universitaria del 13 al 17 de junio.

Esperamos poder ofrecerles un desayuno a todos nuestros voluntarios el 14 de junio, de 8:15 a 9:30 a. m., en el gimnasio del Este. Se ofrecerá supervisión de estudiantes en el gimnasio oeste. Espero contar con su presencia. Les agradecemos a los voluntarios de nuestra escuela por su dedicación este
año, especialmente a la presidenta de la PTA de este año, la Sra. Gena Weeks. Les agradecemos a todos nuestros voluntarios por las innumerables horas que dedicaron a ayudar en las aulas, asistir a las excursiones, y ayudarnos a construir la sala de libros de nuestra escuela y a ampliar el acceso a la
tecnología para los estudiantes de FWES, al igual que con muchas otras actividades que llevaron a cabo tras bastidores.

Se necesitan voluntarios para el día de campo, que se llevará a cabo el 14 de junio, para los eventos de nivel primario e intermedio. Consulten el volante adjunto para ver los horarios. Se llevará a cabo un picnic para toda la escuela el miércoles 15 de junio. Vengan a almorzar con sus hijos en el área cubierta. El gerente de nuestro servicio de comida asará hamburguesas y perros calientes.

Me alegra anunciar que nuestra escuela recibió una subvención para el patio de recreo de $200,000 con la ayuda de Devlin Piplic, el director de instalaciones del distrito escolar de Monroe. Nuestros estudiantes escribieron cartas persuasivas para ayudarnos a determinar qué nuevo equipo deberíamos comprar. Los estudiantes de la ASB leyeron las cartas y me ayudaron a decidir qué sería lo mejor en función de las necesidades y los deseos de nuestros estudiantes. Para el otoño se debería terminar la instalación y el nuevo patio de recreo debería encontrarse disponible, en la zona del patio de recreos amarilla, cuando regresemos el 8 de septiembre. Estamos todos muy entusiasmados por el nuevo
equipo del patio de recreo.

Se están armando los equipos de remodelación de nuestra escuela, así que si están interesados en formar parte de la junta directiva, comuníquense con nuestra oficina escolar. El equipo se reunirá durante el verano para desarrollar los planes para nuestra escuela. Tendrán otras oportunidades de participar durante todo el proceso.

Este ha sido un fantástico año escolar, repleto de eventos divertidos que nos acercaron aún más. Queremos agradecerles por su apoyo constante durante todo el año. No podríamos ofrecerles estas experiencias educativas increíbles a nuestros estudiantes sin la ayuda constante que todos ustedes nos otorgan. El fin de año trae aparejado mudanzas familiares. Queremos aprovechar la oportunidad para desearles lo mejor en sus nuevas escuelas y hogares a todos los estudiantes y todas las familias que nos dejan este año.

Esperamos con ansias las aventuras que nos deparará el tercer año a Hugo y a mí en 2016-17. Nuestro equipo de maestros también se encuentra ocupado, planificando otro año emocionante en Frank Wagner. Hasta entonces, disfruten los últimos gloriosos días de clases. Que pasen un maravilloso verano con sus hijos, hasta que volvamos a vernos el 1 de septiembre en nuestra Reunión por el
regreso a clases.

Saludos cordiales.

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.
