Wheelock School Calendar
2012-2013 School Year
2012-13 School Year
Dear Students and Parents,
The Wheelock School faculty and staff warmly and excitedly welcome you to the 2012-13 school year! We have been working hard all summer to prepare for a much-anticipated opening of school. New supplies and materials have been ordered and delivered. Upon your arrival school you will find fresh paint, some new carpeting, sparkling clean classrooms and very excited and energetic teachers who can’t wait to meet their new students.
The first day of school for students in grades 1-5 is Tuesday, September 4, 2012. The first full day for Preschool students is Wednesday, September 5th and the first full day for Kindergarten students will be Monday, September 10th.
Our school hours are the same as last year. For those who choose, breakfast will be served the first day, and each day thereafter beginning at 8:05. The bell for the start of school will ring at 8:20. Each morning students in grades K-2 will gather at the small (north) playground. Students in grades 3-5 will gather at the large (south) playground. We will have many extra adults outside the first few days of school to help students find their way. The first day of school offers a great opportunity to take a picture as your child waves good-bye when they enter the building. Dismissal will be at 3:00 daily.
Screening of this year’s Kindergarten students will be done by appointment on September 4th and 5th. Orientation for Kindergarten students and families will be held on Friday,September 6th at 9:00 am.
First Student will be publishing bus routes in the Keene Sentinel this week, and in the Keene Shopper News (8/22/12). Bus routes will also be posted online at www.sau29.org.
There are several new staff members joining the Wheelock Faculty. Mrs. Ajlan Beer will be teaching Preschool, Mrs. Kristin Froling will be teaching Art, Mr. Richard Ryan will be in charge of Library and Computer instruction, and Mr. Morris Kimura will be teaching grade 5. Please join me in welcoming our new teachers!
We look forward to a rich and productive school year. Thank you for entrusting us with your children, and partnering with us in their education.
