Hello WVES!

December already!  I trust everyone’s Thanksgiving was a time of family, friends and good food.  We certainly have plenty for which to be thankful each and every day.  That is not always easy to remember and we must remember that an attitude of gratitude has to be taught; first to ourselves and then to our kids. 

We are thankful at WVES for another week’s opportunity to teach and interact with the students and families of our community.  Please see the notes below for this week’s information

School Issues and Concerns

Toys, iPods, Cards, etc:  All personal entertainment items such as these mentioned I ask to remain at home.  One reason for this is to keep student possessions from being broken or stolen or “traded”.  However, another reason is that these items can become distractions and a source of contention among the students.  Please help us to respect the school environment and care of personal items by not sending these types of materials to school.  The exception to this request is if your child’s teacher has requested a particular type of object for a class project.
