On behalf of the Wingdale Elementary School Faculty and Staff, I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to the start of a new school year. I hope you had a relaxing and safe summer vacation and are looking forward to the new adventures in the coming year.
I am fortunate to be moving into the Principal’s position this year and working with an amazing and dedicated faculty and staff. Along with the returning faculty and staff, WES has new faculty members for the 2018-19 school year. Ms. Nicole McPhee will be joining Wingdale as part our kindergarten team as will Mrs. Larissa DeVito, who is returning to WES from Dover Elementary. In addition, Mr. Neil Fleming will be moving from Dover Elementary to Wingdale Elementary as a special education teacher.
The home-school connection is a very important partnership and it is my hope that we work together, along the faculty and staff, and the PTSA to give your children the best possible experience along their educational journey. I encourage you to be involved with the great work the PTSA does in our schools and to communicate with your child’s teacher on a regular basis. Parents and Guardians are invited to have lunch with your child on Tuesdays and Thursdays each week during the designated lunch times (attached).
Additionally, I encourage you to attend the WES Curriculum Night, Thursday, September 20, 2018 at 6:30 p.m. The faculty will share information with you regarding your child’s schooling for the upcoming year.
I am proud to be part of the Dover School District and to share in your child’s education. Please do not hesitate to contact me should you have any questions or concerns. I can be reached at 845-877-5720 or via email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
I look forward to meeting each of your individually and working and supporting your children to achieve both academic and social success this year.
