Wheatland Elementary School Bulletin for Monday, April 24, 2017
WES LUNCHES: With the upcoming last day of school, we are now to the point where a full lunch ticket may not be needed. If you owe for lunches, a lunch notice will be sent home with your child and written on it is the amount to finish the school year. If you have any questions, please call Christy at 673-4365.
ATTENDANCE: As we are about to close another school year, it is important that your child keeps a strong attendance record, as the end of the year is full of testing and other things that are critical to finish the year. We understand that doctor and dentist appointments come up, but if possible, please try to schedule them after school. We also understand that older siblings may be in track or golf, but please contact your child’s teacher before pulling them out of school to make sure there are no tests or other important projects planned for that day. We ask for your full understanding in this matter.
WES FEES: With the end of the school year fast approaching, we ask that any parents who still have fees and lunch tickets due, please contact the school to make payments immediately. All outstanding fees need taken care of by May 1st. If you have any questions, please contact Christy at 673-4365. Thank you!
UPCOMING EVENTS: WES is a buzz with all the events coming up! Here are a few things, with final information to be sent out at a later date. 4th Grade Conservation Roundup will be in Colby, Tuesday, April 25th.
