Wolfhound Wednesday
May 20, 2015
In This Issue

Dear Parents,


Tomorrow is our Wolfhound Field Day featuring Supergames.  Students may dress down (athletic shoes are a MUST), please apply sunscreen at home and students should bring a water bottle labeled with his/her name.  Keep in mind the weather will be cool in the morning so dressing in layers may be helpful.  Lunch, additional water, and a popsicle treat will be provided. This great event is sponsored by our Annual Fund, as well as a thank you gift for a great year from our cafeteria. 


As the end of the school year is rapidly approaching, we begin thinking about the calendar for the next year.  One important calendar change to make note of at this point is Parent Administration Day and "Meet The Teacher" for grades 1- 8 will both take place on Monday, August 24th from 4:00 - 6:00 PM.  Incoming kindergarten students will have WOW Day on August 24th and 25th and kindergarten parents will be receiving detailed information in the mail regarding this program.  The 1st day of school will be August 26th.


There will be more end of the school year news next Wednesday.


Have a great Memorial Day Week-end and remember to honor our men and women who have served in our military services. 



Kathleen O'Reilly
