    Hello WRS All-Star Families!

    We hope your family got some time outside in the fresh air and warmer temperatures this weekend!  What a wonderful week we had at William Roper School connecting with families about student growth during the second trimester, and now we turn our attention to finishing strong in the third and final reporting period!  Can you believe it?  

    Grandparents' Day and the Scholastic Book Fair were a huge success thanks to the PTO and all of the families who donated time and resources to make it such a wonderful day for our kids and their special guests!  A huge thank you goes out to Mrs. Hitchner, Mrs. Wentz and Mrs. Husser for coordinating these events and being our PTO representatives.  

    Our students continue to read, bring in their full reading logs and request new ones!  We are far from our goal of 1,000 books, but we are getting closer each day so keep reading!  

    We also wanted to share that we are preparing our kindergarten children for transitioning to MSS and one way is that you will see more independence with our carpool line. We are encouraging the children to open their own door and get in and out of the vehicles with guidance from our staf

    Here are a few reminders for this week!
