Welcome back Waldheim School Community! It is wonderful to see all of the students, staff, and parents around the school. Holidays are so much fun, but the start of a school year is so exciting. The students are excited to see their old friends and meet new ones. They are curious about what their new teacher is going to be like. Often they have some new clothes or school supplies. The teachers are full of energy and they are eager to get to know their students. It is a wonderful time of year.
Our school goals this year will once again center around literacy and student engagement. We have already had a staff meeting and we have started our learning journey. We are intent on working hard this year to improve how we teach to improve our students’ learning. We are very lucky to have such a dedicated staff who are so passionate about building relationships with our students and providing the best possible learning for our students.
Our school now has a Twitter account. We will occasionally post events and activities that are happening at the school. Our account is @waldheim_school. We will ensure that we follow the media coverage policy. Please feel free to follow our account. If you have any questions about our Twitter account please contact Mr. Mason or Mr. Mellesmoen. We are looking forward to seeing all of our students and parents at our meet the staff barbeque on Thursday, September 15. The food will be ready at 5:00. The teachers, E.A.s, and other support staff will be at the school and they are looking forward to meeting you or saying hi again. The proceeds from our barbque will help us purchase books for our classroom libraries. Thank you in advance for coming out!
We would like to remind all students to use the crosswalk this year. We have 28 eager crosswalk guards signed up for this year. We have had some near misses over the past few years with students running across the street at other locations than the crosswalk. We train crosswalk guards to keep our students safe. Please help us keep all the students safe.
We want to remind everyone that all the doors to the school will be open in the morning starting at 8:40. This is also when our supervision begins. Our exterior doors will be locked throughout the school day. The only door that will be unlocked will be the door by the office. We require visitors to our school to check in at the office. We enjoy when you stop in and say hi and connect with us.
