It’s almost time to start the school year—and this year we are kicking things off with our first Home & School Partnership Night on Wednesday, August 31 from 4:30 – 7:30 p.m. in the Wakefield-Marenisco School gymnasium.

Please take time to stop in and meet your students’ teachers and take a look at our school’s curriculum for each content area and grade level.  We’ll have the PTO and the W-M Sports Boosters there, so be sure to sign up for membership in those worthy organizations.  We’ll also have the Gogebic-Ontonagon Intermediate School District Early Starts Collaborative there to provide information on area programs for our youngest scholars—those younger than age 4.

We will have the Quarter 1 calendar of events along with the September lunch menu.  Staff will be available to assist parents with Power School log-ins and other online resources used by staff, such as Edmodo, Class Dojo and Google Classroom.

Additionally, we will be providing all families with our new, updated Parent Involvement Plan and School/Family Compact.

We hope that all families will spend a few minutes visiting us during Home & School Partnership Night.  We look forward to seeing you there and to starting off the new school year.

You have to set goals that are almost out of reach. If you set a goal that is attainable without much work or thought, you are stuck with something below your true talent and potential. --Steve Garvey
