Dear Parents and Guardians,
The month of February seems to be passing us by so quickly and the warm days have given a sense of spring in the air.
Next Thursday is the annual NEA Read Across America Day, which celebrates Dr.Seuss's birthday and the joys of reading. Wakelee School students and staff will be celebrating all week with a theme for each day in honor of Dr. Seuss. Please reference the schedule below for the details.
Theme week:

Tuesday-Fox & Socks-Wear Crazy Socks

Thursday- Oh, The Places You will Go! Wear a shirt from a place you have visited, a favorite college, or dress up as someone you would like to be when you grow up

Last month the students enjoyed a powerful performance from Jared Campbell. His original songs are written with a focus on overcoming obstacles, creating relationships and understanding their value. If you are interested in purchasing his CD I have attached a copy of the order form or your child can pick up an order form from the main office.
You will also find the March lunch menu attached.
Enjoy your weekend!
