Peek at the Week 1-6-19

Good evening Ward Families,

We had a great first two days back at Ward last week. We have our first full week of school following the winter break and we are looking forward to a great week. We met with all grade levels last Friday to review school wide expectations for students and ask that parents continue to encourage their children to demonstrate Ward Strong behavior.

We will have our January Coffee with the Principals tomorrow morning, January 7th, at 7:45 a.m. We look forward to seeing our parents there.

Rolfe Middle School will also be visiting our 5th grade students tomorrow to share information about the middle school with our students.

We will begin our after school team practices this week on Wednesday, January 9th. Only students that returned permission forms for basketball, cheer, and dance teams should plan to stay back after school. Parents, letters outlining program information and bus routes will be sent home with students tomorrow.

January is also MANuary at Ward! During this month, we encourage fathers and father figures to become actively involved at school by volunteering during lunch shifts, greeting students each morning, and attending our events this month. If you would like to volunteer at lunch or greet students, please contact Ms. Chase, our Family Advocate. Please also mark your calendars for our Donuts, Dads, and Books event that will take place on January 18th. Letters about this event will be sent home this week. Additionally, please mark your calendars for our Fitness Night taking place on January 24th. Fliers for this event will be sent home in the coming weeks.

Parents, we continue to encourage you to attend school events to make our Ward Strong Parent Honor Roll! Thank you to our parents that have attended events this school year and we look forward to seeing more in 2019!

As always, thank you for your support Ward Families! Have a wonderful week!


Ms. Chatman
Proud Principal
