Frank Wagner Elementary School

May 2016

Dear Frank Wagner Families,

During the week of May 2nd to 6th, 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 who work together on a daily basis for the children of our school. Thank you for recognizing these dedicated educators and support staff members. 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.

May finds us in the midst of our state testing for grades 4, 5 and 6. Testing will be completed for all of our students by May 13th. Our kiddos have done a great job of giving this test their all. Please be sure to congratulate your child for a job well done! This year we were able to employ our Chromebook computers to accomplish the testing in a much timelier manner. Thank you to our PTA and Mrs. Culnane’s daughter for securing snacks for our students during this testing time. Test results will arrive later this spring.

We are pleased to announce the selection of our architectural firm for the Frank Wagner Elementary Remodel. Integrus (who is currently the architect for PPM) will be working on FWE. If you are interested in serving on a parent committee please contact Kathy Bernhardt at the Hub. We will be starting discussions this month with teachers to begin the process of educational considerations and then next fall will include community input. I appreciate your ideas and know together we will create a world class environment to support our FWES students.

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 your child to school on time, prepared to end the year strong. May and June are busy months at FWES. Next month we will have our 2nd Annual College Week Celebration from June 13th to 17th. We have planned Field Day, an all school picnic, our Volunteer Appreciation Breakfast, and the Red Carpet Assembly honoring former FWES students graduating from MHS and moving onto college 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 2016-17 school year, teacher teams are busy working on creating balanced classrooms. Thank you to those families 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 busy working on teacher assignments and am hopeful we can publish that information in our June newsletter. The creation of classroom rosters is 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.

Estimadas familias de Frank Wagner:

Durante la semana del 2 al 6 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 para agradecer y homenajear a los maestros y a los miembros del personal que trabajan juntos a diario para los niños de nuestra escuela. Gracias por reconocer a estos dedicados educadores y miembros del personal auxiliares. De parte de mi 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 ex-traordinarias.

Mayo nos encuentra en el medio de nuestras evaluaciones estatales para los grados 4.o, 5.o y 6.o. Para el 13 de mayo se habrá evaluado a todos los estudiantes. Nuestros niños se esforzaron mucho por dar lo mejor de sí en esta evaluación. ¡Asegúrense de felicitar a sus hijos por el buen trabajo que han hecho! Este año pudimos utili-zar nuestras computadoras Chromebook para llevar a cabo la evaluación de manera mucho más rápida. Agra-decemos 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. Recibiremos los resultados de la prue-ba en unas semanas.

Nos alegra anunciar la elección que tomó nuestro estudio de arquitectura para la remodelación de Frank Wag-ner Elementary. Integrus (que se encarga actualmente de la arquitectura de PPM) trabajará en FWE. Si están interesados en formar parte del comité de padres, comuníquense con Kathy Bernhardt, del Centro de recursos para padres. Este mes comenzaremos a llevar a cabo reuniones con los maestros para iniciar el proceso de consideraciones educativas y el próximo mes sumaremos los comentarios de la comunidad. Agradezco sus ideas y sé que juntos podremos crear un entorno educativo de primera calidad para ayudar a los estudiantes de FWES.

A medida que se acerca el fin del año escolar, tenemos muchos eventos y actividades en el calendario de nuestra escuela. Gracias por enviar a sus hijos a la escuela a tiempo y preparados para finalizar el año de la mejor manera. Mayo y junio son meses con muchas actividades en FWES. El mes próximo llevaremos a cabo nuestra segunda celebración anual de la Semana universitaria, del 13 al 17 de junio. Tenemos planificado un día de campo, un picnic para toda la escuela, nuestro Desayuno de reconocimiento a los voluntarios y el Acto de alfombra roja para homenajear a los exestudiantes de FWES que se graduarán de MHS y comenzarán la universidad. Encontrarán más información en el boletín informativo del próximo mes. Si les interesaría ofrecer-se 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 2016-17, los equipos de maestros están ocupados trabajando en crear aulas unifor-mes. Les agradecemos a las familias que completaron nuestros formularios de comentarios de los padres. En agosto les enviaremos cartas notificándolos quién será el maestro de su hijo el año siguiente. Estoy trabajando en la asignación de maestros y tengo confianza en que podremos publicar dicha información en nuestro boletín informativo de junio. La asignación de aulas es una tarea compleja y estamos trabajando para asegurar las me-jores configuraciones posibles para ayudar a nuestros estudiantes.

Gracias por su colaboración continua 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.

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.
