Our Kid’s Christmas Sale raised $798.15 this year with an additional $131.15 raised by a group of Grade 5 students with sales from comic books they created and holiday cards. Thank you to Stephanie Mullen and the PPO along with parent volunteers for their hard work organizing and running the sale. Proceeds will go to new books for the library and the Guatemalan Daycare Project.

A big thank you to Wakefield Toy Mountain for supplying gifts and snow suits for our holiday baskets. Thanks to Judy Thompson for supplying the turkeys. We also want to thank our parents who left generous donations under our tree. It is truly appreciated.
Daycare invoices are due today. Please note daycare services will be suspended in the new year for any outstanding accounts. Wednesday, Dec. 18 is the annual daycare holiday production. Parents are welcome, the show begins at 4:30 pm. For this night only, parents may park their vehicle in the parking area behind the school.
Because there are so many cars and not many lights behind the school, no children may leave the building unless they are accompanied by an adult.
We would like to extend an invitation to parents to join us on Friday, December 20th at 8:30am in the gym for carolling. Unfortunately due to the limited parking available at the school we ask that you make alternate parking arrangements if possible.
The last day of school before the holidays is Friday, December 20th. Monday, January 6th is a PD day. The school will be closed. Daycare remains open to those who pre-register. Information will follow. Regular classes resume On Tuesday, January 7, 2014.
The staff at Wakefield Elementary would like to take this opportunity to send best wishes to you and your family throughout the holiday season. We look forward to seeing everyone in the New Year.
