It’s Back to School Time!
Welcome back to a new school year! Where has the summer gone? We are excited about all the possibilities that a new school year brings and are eager to get started. One of the greatest gifts we can bestow upon our students is to create an outstanding school atmosphere which will leave an enduring impression on their academic lives. We will work together to foster a love of learning that will lead to future successes here, at Wheeler County Middle/High School, and beyond.
Our annual Seek and Find Open House is Monday, August 1, from 1:00 to 4:00 p.m. Please come meet your teacher(s) during that time. As you visit the school, you will notice some new faces. I am proud to introduce Ms. Patricia Pearce, who will be teaching Kindergarten, and Mrs. Jessie Jarrard, who will be teaching Fourth Grade Language Arts.
Ms. Patricia Pearce Mrs. Jessie Jarrard
Our first day of school is Tuesday, August 2nd. Our doors will open at 7:20 a.m. for students. Once again we are fortunate to offer meals to all of our students at no cost so please arrive in time to have breakfast for a nutritious start to the day. Again this year, school will begin and students will be tardy at 8:00 a.m. Please make sure your student is on time each day. Every minute counts for student success!
One of the best ways to ensure your student’s success is to keep communication with their teacher ongoing and productive. This is easy to do as we all have the same goal in mind….seeing EVERY student learn and enjoy the journey of learning. The best way to do this is to check your student’s agenda every night for vital information.
Our school website and Facebook page have proven to be very valuable in providing you with up-to-date information. Check out our website at www.wheelercountyschools.org. Click on the Wheeler County Elementary School link. Also, like us on Facebook at Wheeler County Elementary School.
In closing, I look forward to meeting you and working with you to create the best educational experience for your student. I believe that students can reach their potential when parents, teachers, students and administrators work together. The staff of Wheeler County Elementary School looks forward to another year of providing an outstanding education to your student. We value your input and welcome your questions and concerns. Working together we can provide the education your student deserves.
