Wakefield-Marenisco School District
November 2017

Quarter 1 of the 2017-2018 school year has flown by.  We thought we might make it through October without snow but no such luck.  Welcome to Winter!!


November and December are months full of activities and events.  Be sure to check the calendar below.


Parent/teacher conferences are set for Thursday, Nov. 9 from 1:00 – 4:00 and from 5:00 – 7:00.  Students are dismissed at noon.  This year we will continue with the “conference run”—for every teacher that a parent sees during conferences, that parent will receive a raffle ticket for prizes donated by our local businesses and organizations.  So if your student is in elementary and you visit his/her classroom teacher, art teacher, music teacher and PE teacher, you would receive four tickets to put into the raffle.  The goal is to increase family participation and make sure parents have the chance to talk to all of the staff.  Please come out for the conferences—and be sure to be ready to write your name and phone number on a lot of raffle tickets!


The other big event in November is the Veterans’ Day program on Friday, Nov. 10 at 2:00 p.m.  We look forward to the opportunity to honor our Veterans and we invite everyone to join us for the program.


Girls and boys basketball starts up in November as well as junior high boys basketball—once those seasons start, can spring be far away?


Congratulations to our fall sports student-athletes:  Cardinal volleyball and junior high girls basketball and Gogebic Miners football and the UP State Champion Gogebic Miners Cross Country team.
