We are very fortunate at Wheatland Elementary school to have a group of dedicated parent volunteers who have committed themselves to help make our school the wonderful place that it is. Not only do we have parents who have taken a formal role on the School Council but we also have many parents who help out supporting us with hot lunch, fundraising, field trips, or simply by being volunteers in our classrooms and lending a hand. What we know is that it takes all of us working together in collaborative and meaningful ways to create the foundation for life long learning. We appreciate teaming with our parents and the broader community as this partnership is truly the best for all of us. What I have realized is that the common thread in all of these support roles  is truly the same. We are all here for the same reason– we love these children and we want to provide the conditions necessary to make this experience the best it can be. We would be remiss if we didn’t mention the overwhelming support of families this past week as they offered so many donations for our annual food bank drive. Each day this week, we had   tremendous support from our families as each class worked hard to collect as many items as possible. We are proud to provide this collective effort to our local food back on behalf of the Wheatland community. We want to offer our sincere appreciation to all the parents and community members who commit their valuable time and efforts as partners at Wheatland Elementary school- it takes a community-we could not do this without your continued support.

In appreciation,
