Board of Ed Listening Tour for February PTO Meeting

On Thursday, 2/21/19 the Wolcott PTO Meeting will be hosting the Board of Education Listening Tour. Are you familiar with some of the issues the BOE manages like the school’s budget, building maintenance, Rethinking School Start Times Campaign, etc?

The BOE annually approves and publishes its Capital Improvement Plan (CIP) in January. Wolcott is slated for these facility updates: Modular Classroom Removal (2019-2020), Stage Lighting (2019-2020), Playground (2020-2021) . The Budget is adopted each March.

Please join us for this honorary meeting with the BOE to share your voice and ask questions. This is a chance to ask questions about what is important to you and your family about Wolcott Elementary! We can’t wait to see you there!

Take a moment to let us know what topics you are most interested in – survey open until 2/14/19. https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/MNBJPG8

Eagle’s Nest Closet is Restocked!

A message from Jenine St.Clair –

A few new items have been added to the Eagle’s nest clothing closet. Help yourself!
I noticed an XS North Face raincoat, there are a few added girls shirts, pants and workout shorts up to size 12, a large (unisex) sweatshirt, girls workout shorts size 5/6. Plus more that has been there on the rack. Shoes, sneakers and boots. A couple winter coats are still available. There are brand new winter hats and mittens – tags still on them! There is a pack of size small girls underwear.

And for the boys, lots and lots of clothing sizes 4t-8/10 including workout shorts & workout pants, slacks, and long & short sleeve shirts.

Stop by or have your child check it out! It is now organized a little better by size. Help yourself to as many items as you like. Take a size up if you see something for next year.
