The Fun Run is Coming! Registration opens on Monday!

April 29th, 2019

Dear Families,

Thank you for your support of our can top collection! We have too many tops to count… Our guess is that we have well over a thousand tops to donate to The Ronald McDonald House. As always, thanks for your support!

First grade celebrated Children’s Day with the JPA!

Members of the Japanese Parents Association taught first grade children about this holiday in Japan. They created a carp flag and listened to a song about the occasion in Japanese. It was a lovely celebration. (To see photos of the event, please visit my Twitter page- @MariKDoyle.)

Beautification Day is Coming, THIS Saturday, May 4th!

This year’s Beautification Day is a very special one! In addition to planting flowers near the entrances and some fun things in the garden beds for the kids to watch grow, we will be painting the benches and dedicating our new outdoor classroom!

Join us for a half hour, or the whole day. Whatever your schedule allows. We will start with the Outdoor Classroom dedication at 10 a.m., and continue with our planting and set up throughout the day.

We will have some supplies on hand, but if you have your own small shovels, rakes or gloves, please bring them along! Donations are also welcome!

(Please let us know ahead of time if you would like to make a donation of plants, soil, or other supplies).

For questions or more information, contact: Sarah DeRise

Kindergarten Registration is open for children who turn five years of age on or before December 1, 2019. Tell your neighbors and friends!

Registering now guarantees that families will be able to attend Kindergarten Screening and Orientation. Many of their questions will be answered about life for a kindergarten student at Waverly and children will get a chance to play in our classrooms.

Once you have completed the application and all registration requirements, the registrar will review the application. Upon approval of the application, you will receive an email to schedule a 10 minute appointment with the Registrar to provide the original version of the supporting documents. Be sure to schedule that appointment to complete your child’s registration!
