Happy New Year! I hope everyone had a
wonderful holiday, a restful break, and had a chance to spend time
with family and friends. I would like to congratulate the
entire Ward School community on the success of our first ever
school wide Read-A-Thon. Our students read over one million
minutes and we raised a tremendous amount of money for our
wonderful school. It was a true team effort. I would
like to give a big thank you to our PTA and our Read-A-Thon
committee for all of their hard work.
Before leaving for the December break, Ward
school was busy with many events and happenings. The book
fair, staff appreciation breakfast and holiday boutique were all
huge successes. Thank you to all the parent volunteers who
helped to organize and run both events.

teachers, Mrs. Egolf and Mrs. DErasmo, who worked so hard with the
Looking ahead in January, we will be having a
special presentation at our PTA meeting. On January
8th, the PTA meeting will be held at 7:00 pm and will
feature a presentation on the selection process for
Kaleidoscope. I hope to see you all there.
Again, I would like to wish all the Ward
families a very happy new year and I look forward to Ward Schools
continued rise to be the very best!
