Dear Parents and Guardians,
Spring is almost upon us! Thank you for your continued teamwork with our entire WHES Faculty and Staff as we collectively help our students "bloom" each school day.
Regardless if we may have more winter weather, our staff will remain steadfast in our efforts toward educating, empowering, inspiring, and nurturing the whole child throughout the final months of school. We will also continue to welcome your communication to your child's classroom teacher regarding any questions, positive feedback, concerns, and/or updates.
Two specific updates to share:
The first update is with the PSSA Math and Reading Tests. Please help our Grades 3 and 4 Hilltoppers make themselves, the WHES school, and the WHES community proud again by ensuring that students have a restful, lengthy, night of sleep and then come to school on time, prepared to show what they know for only one test per day! The PSSA testing schedule is below. All tests begin following the pledges and morning announcements.
Tuesday, March 25
Wednesday, March 26
Thursday, March 27
Friday, March 28
Tuesday, April 1
Wednesday, April 2
Second, those still wishing to enroll a Kindergarten student for the 2014-2015 School Year may still do so at your earliest convenience from 9 AM until 2 PM at the elementary school office. Children registering for Kindergarten must be at least five years old by September 1, 2014. Please bring your child’s birth certificate, Social Security card, immunization records, and parent/guardian driver’s license or alternative proof of residency. Please feel free to call 255-8707 with any questions.
Remember to periodically browse through the rest of the WHES website's tabs, including the Response to Instruction and Intervention (RtII) tab. Updates occur frequently. Thank you again for your continued commitment to our mission statement and for displaying your positive community approach to educating our students!
