February Family Newsletter

At Wahoo Elementary, we work to identify each child's positive attributes, and help him/her develop these talents with a growth mindset.

Students with a growth mindset:

1) Embrace challenges

2) Learn from feedback

3) Persist through setbacks

4) Find inspiration from the success of others

5) View effort as the path to mastery

Parental Involvement

Wahoo Elementary welcomes participation of parents and community members in our school! If you are looking for ways to go "ABOVE and BEYOND" as a parent, please click on the button below.

Parental Involvement Opportunties

Personal Devices at School

Many families send their child to school with a personal device of some kind (cell phone, iPod, high-tech watch). Often, parents do this as a safety measure so students can call/text as they travel between school and home. However, the growing number and types of these devices pose a significant distraction during school hours. Moving forward, all devices (including watches) that have the ability to text/call will be kept in backpacks from 7:45 to 3:15. Students are not to use these devices until they leave the elementary building.
