Happy Friday, Wells Families! Yesterday and today, your child brought home a snowflake from school. If your child is a remote only learner, there was a snowflake in your child’s third quarter supply bag. If you have not picked up your child’s third quarter materials, they may be picked up at the school. This snowflake was a celebration of your child’s hard work for the second quarter. At Wells, we are proud of the hard work and perseverance all of our students put into their learning. Way to go!!! Our PBIS team has a goal for our students. Our goal is to get less than 10 referrals total during the third quarter at Wells Elementary School. We can do this by being respectful, being responsible, and by being safe. We know we can do it, and we believe in you. Have an amazing weekend. Remember, there is no school on Monday, January 18th. ¡Feliz viernes, familias de Wells! Ayer y hoy, su hijo trajo a casa un copo de nieve de la escuela. Si su hijo es un aprendiz solo remoto, había un copo de nieve en la bolsa de suministros del tercer trimestre de su hijo. Si no ha recogido los materiales del tercer trimestre de su hijo, pueden recogerlos en la escuela. Este copo de nieve fue una celebración del arduo trabajo de su hijo durante el segundo trimestre. En Wells, estamos orgullosos del arduo trabajo y la perseverancia que todos nuestros estudiantes ponen en su aprendizaje. ¡¡¡Camino a seguir!!! Nuestro equipo de PBIS tiene una meta para nuestros estudiantes. Nuestro objetivo es obtener menos de 10 referencias en total durante el tercer trimestre en la Escuela Primaria Wells. ¡Podemos hacer esto siendo respetuosos, responsables y seguros! Sabemos que podemos hacerlo y creemos en ti. Que tengas un fin de semana increíble. Recuerde, no hay clases el lunes 18 de enero. Bon vendredi, Famille Wells! Hier et aujourd'hui, votre enfant a ramené à la maison un flocon de neige de l'école. Si votre enfant apprend seulement à distance, il y avait un flocon de neige dans le sac de fournitures du troisième trimestre de votre enfant. Si vous n'avez pas récupéré les documents du troisième trimestre de votre enfant, ils peuvent être récupérés à l'école. Ce flocon de neige était une célébration du travail acharné de votre enfant pour le deuxième trimestre. À Wells, nous sommes fiers du travail acharné et de la persévérance que tous nos étudiants mettent dans leur apprentissage. Marche à suivre!!! Notre équipe PBIS a un objectif pour nos étudiants. Notre objectif est d'obtenir moins de 10 références au total au cours du troisième trimestre à la Wells Elementary School. Nous pouvons le faire en étant respectueux, responsables et en sécurité! Nous savons que nous pouvons le faire et nous croyons en vous. Passez un week-end incroyable. N'oubliez pas qu'il n'y a pas d'école le lundi 18 janvier. جمعة سعيدة ، عائلات ويلز! بالأمس واليوم ، أحضر طفلك ندفة الثلج من المدرسة إلى المنزل. إذا كان طفلك متعلمًا عن بُعد فقط ، فقد كانت هناك ندفة ثلجية في حقيبة إمداد الربع الثالث لطفلك. إذا لم تكن قد التقطت مواد الربع الثالث لطفلك ، فقد يتم استلامها من المدرسة. كانت ندفة الثلج هذه احتفالًا بالعمل الشاق لطفلك في الربع الثاني. في ويلز ، نحن فخورون بالعمل الجاد والمثابرة التي بذلها جميع طلابنا في تعلمهم. أحسنت !!! فريق PBIS لدينا لديه هدف لطلابنا. هدفنا هو الحصول على أقل من 10 إحالات خلال الربع الثالث في مدرسة ويلز الابتدائية. يمكننا القيام بذلك من خلال التحلي بالاحترام والمسؤولية والأمان! نحن نعلم أنه يمكننا القيام بذلك ، ونحن نؤمن بك. أتمنى لك عطلة نهاية أسبوع رائعة. تذكر ، لا توجد مدرسة يوم الاثنين 18 يناير.

Hello Wells Kindergarten through 4th grade families. We will return to our in person blended learning this week. This week is our last week for the second quarter. If your student was attending in person on Tuesdays and Thursdays before we went full remote, we will see them Tuesday, January 12th. If your student was attending in person on Wednesdays and Fridays, we will see them on January 13th. One other important reminder is that the third quarter will begin January 19th. If you contacted the school to change how your child will attend school, these changes will begin the week of January 19th. Remember, to follow the health and safety guidelines please certify your student each day by checking their temperature and answering the questions on the golden ticket. Students need to have the golden ticket when they arrive daily with a parent signature. We look forward to seeing students back in the building.

The richness of different cultures, faiths, languages mixed with the courage/strength to leave all that is known to move to a new country/place that is often completely different from the place you might have known your whole life. I love people who do the best they can frequently with little resources. I love the kids who teach me every day which keeps my mind and heart open and flexible. The energy that feeds me are all people. What is your favorite children’s book? Make Way for Ducklings was a long time favorite until I discovered The Proudest Blue by Ibtihaj Muhammad. What do you do to relax? I watch too many crime shows, play the piano, try to teach myself different instruments (i.e. cello, guitar, and different recorders). I like to read, garden, bicycle, and learn. I used to run.
