PTO Thank You!

Our Teacher Appreciation Team (Jamie Janoff, Dina Antun & Heidi Renneker) surprised our teachers and staff on the 14th with a thank you for putting their hearts into all that they do for WMS. They did a great job! 

Thanks as well to Kim Steere for being the PTO host for the SBIRT information session!
Bus Driver & Crossing Guard Appreciation Breakfast
Wednesday, March 21, 9:00 - 10:00 am
Loker School Cafeteria
Join Wayland's PTO boards as we thank our bus drivers and crossing guards for all that they do to get our students safely to and from where they need to go. Whether your child walks to school, rides the bus, plays sports, or has enjoyed a field trip on the bus - we couldn't do it without these folks! This year the Loker Elementary School is hosting the event, and there are three ways that you can help:
● Volunteer to help at the breakfast by donating food, supplies or time on March 21 st
We are now using Signup.com (formerly Volunteer Spot). Visit our link, review the options and choose the spot(s) that you would like at:  http://signup.com/go/bxwQYun.  
You will not need to register an account or keep a password to sign up.
● You or your student can write a personal thank you note to your bus driver or crossing guard. These can be dropped off in the elementary school offices by the end of the school day on Thursday, March 15 th .
● Consider a $10 donation, instead, to help offset the cost of the breakfast and the simple gift bags for each driver/guard. Please make a check payable to "Wayland PTO" and drop them off at the Elementary School Offices or contact Nina Ching at  ninapc@gmail.com  for information on where to send them.
