November 2016

Dear Frank Wagner Parents,
Thank you for the outstanding attendance for our Fall conferences. It was great to see and visit with you! The FWEs staff and administration appreciate your time and involvement in helping to establish goals for all of our students. Your commitment to attend helps child(ren) recognize our partnership in supporting them as they learn and grow. Kudos to you for making this a priority in your schedule. Last month we celebrated National Hispanic Heritage month with an all school assembly. We were so honored to hear from three of our Natural Leaders who shared a bit of their heritage, including art objects, clothing and information about their home countries in Latin America. Thank you to Esmeralda Medina, Terri Morano and Maria Reber for their willingness to share with the FWEs students . We are so very fortunate to be a rich and diverse school community. Next month we will celebrate Veteran’s Day with an all school assembly on Nov. 10th. If you are a current or former member of the military, you are welcome to join us as we honor those who serve(d) our country. Our monthly assembly also honors our students who exemplify the Wildcat Way:

Be Safe
Be Kind
Be Responsible

If your child will be honored you will receive a phone call from your child’s teacher to alert you and invite you to attend our monthly assembly. Thank you for sending students to school on time! As the weather gets colder, we begin to see kids huddled outside of the gym doors waiting for breakfast. Please help your children time their arrival to school no earlier than 8:15 am when we have staff in the gym to monitor students. Breakfast service begins at 8:20. Remember we do not have supervision for students on the playground until 8:40 am so our playground is not open for use until then in the mornings. Thank you for your help in keeping all of our students safe and warm! Thank you to all of the parent volunteers who continue to share their skills and talents with us. These last two months we have enjoyed volunteer support from health screening to the book fair. We are very grateful to our wonderful volunteers for all of the assistance and support. Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns about our school. I will be inviting parents to a meeting to share about our remodeling plans soon. Watch for flyers and invitations. I am always interested in your ideas and thoughts about how we can improve our service to you and your child. I am available by phone or email at berardv@monroe.wednet.edu.

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

Estimados padres de Frank Wagner: Gracias por la sobresaliente asistencia a nuestra conferencia de otoño. ¡Fue excelente verlos y conversar con ustedes! El personal y la administración de FEW les agradecen por su tiempo y su participación para ayudar a establecer objetivos para todos nuestros estudiantes. Su compromiso con la asistencia ayuda a que los niños observen que trabajamos en conjunto para ayudarlos a aprender y crecer. Felicitaciones por haberle dado prioridad al evento y hacerse el tiempo para participar de este.

El mes pasado celebramos el mes de la Herencia hispana nacional con una asamblea para toda la escuela. Tuvimos el honor de contar con la presencia de tres de nuestros Líderes naturales, quienes nos contaron sobre su herencia, compartiendo artesanías, vestimenta e información sobre sus países de nacimiento en Latinoamé- rica. Les agradecemos a Esmeralda Medina, Terri Morano y Maria Reber por su predisposición a compartir su herencia con los estudiantes de FWE. Estamos muy agradecidos por tener una comunidad escolar tan valiosa y diversa.

El próximo mes festejaremos el Día de los Veteranos de Guerra con una asamblea para toda la escuela que se llevará a cabo el 10 de noviembre. Si son miembros actuales o fueron miembros del cuerpo militar, los invitamos a acompañarnos a nuestra celebración para aquellas personas que luchan por nuestro país. Nuestra asamblea mensual también reconoce a aquellos estudiantes que ejemplifican qué significa ser Wildcat:
· Mantenerse seguro
· Ser amable
· Ser responsible

Si sus hijos reciben el reconocimiento, el maestro de sus hijos los llamará para informarles e invitarlos a asistir a nuestra asamblea mensual.

¡Gracias por enviar a los estudiantes a la escuela a horario! A medida que el clima se vuelve más frío, los niños comienzan a agruparse fuera del gimnasio, esperando para desayunar. Ayuden a sus niños a no llegar a la escuela antes de las 8:15 a. m., horario a partir del cual contamos con personal en el gimnasio para cuidar a los estudiantes. El desayuno comienza a las 8:20. Recuerden que no contamos con supervisión para los estudiantes en el patio de recreos hasta las 8:40 a. m., razón por la cual este no se encuentra abierto hasta dicho horario. ¡Gracias por ayudarnos a mantener a todos nuestros estudiantes seguros y abrigados!

Les agradecemos a todos los padres que se ofrecen como voluntarios para continuar compartiendo sus habilidades y talentos con nosotros. Los últimos dos meses contamos con la ayuda de voluntarios en diversas actividades, desde los exámenes de salud hasta la feria de libros. Les agradecemos muchísimo a nuestros maravillosos voluntarios por toda su ayuda y colaboración.

No duden en comunicarse conmigo en caso de tener alguna consulta o inquietud sobre la escuela. Pronto invitaré a los padres a una reunión para compartir nuestros planes de remodelación. Pronto recibirán volantes e invitaciones. Como siempre, me gustaría recibir sus ideas y opiniones sobre cómo podemos mejorar el servicio que les ofrecemos a ustedes y a sus hijos. Pueden llamarme por teléfono o enviarme un correo electrónico a berardv@monroe.wednet.edu. ¡Nos vemos en la escuela!

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.
