Welcome to Wamsley Elementary

Thank you for another great week here at Wamsley!  

Here is a look at a day in the life of a Wamsley Wildcat this week: Wildcat Learners

Just a reminder that we are giving state assessments in 3rd grade this next week.  We are so proud of the effort that our 4th and 5th graders put into their testing this past week.  Here is the letter that was sent home with more information and the testing schedule:  Wamsley CMAS Letter 2021Your student will be using their school chromebooks for these assessments, so we ask that you please remember to charge the chromebook every night.  

We are planning our end of year virtual student talent show!  Here is the link for the google sign-up form: Wamsley Virtual Talent Show Sign-Up  The deadline for signing up is April 29th.  We can’t wait to see all of our amazing Wamsley Wildcats show off their talents!

We also have begun planning fun outdoor field trips for all grade levels during the month of May.  In the past, we have always welcomed parents on our field trips.  Due to our current COVID restrictions, we will need any parents interested in joining a field trip to receive prior approval.  Unfortunately, we will not be able to allow parents to join a field trip without prior approval.  Please look for permission slips to come home with more information.  Thank you for your cooperation and understanding!

1.  We need your help to keep our school open!  If anyone in your household is sick, or being tested for COVID, you must keep your children home and inform the school.  If you’re not sure whether you should send your children to school, please keep them home and give us a call.  We will be more than happy to talk with you and help you determine if your child can be at school.  Please feel free to contact us at 970-665-7950.

2.  All supplies sent home must be returned the next day.  We use them in class!  Also, please keep your chargers at home and be sure to charge your chromebooks and iPads every night.  

3.  If you deliver a lunch to the school it must be in a sealed container labeled with your child’s name and teacher, and delivered before 11am (regardless of what time your child eats lunch).  

Have a great week!

As always, be sure to check your email for important information and reminders!
