REMINDER: The school will be closed on Friday, February 12, for a Faculty Planning Day, and will remain closed on Monday, February 15, in observance of the Presidents’ Day holiday.
We invite you join us for our next Parent Coffee on Thursday, February 18, from 8:15 to 9:15 a.m., in the first floor Lower School Multipurpose Room. Every other week, Karen Westman and Chris Toomer, our Co-Heads of School, and Allison Schneider, our Associate Head of School, host drop-in coffees for WFM parents. No RSVP is required and the coffees are open to all WFM parents. Please stop by the first floor Lower Campus Multipurpose Room on Thursday, February 18, to stay current on what is happening at WFM. We look forward to seeing you there!
On Friday, February 19, from 2:30 to 3:00 p.m., Lower Elementary and Upper Elementary parents are invited to join us in their child’s classroom for Open Friday. This is a special time for parents to come in and spend time with their children in their classrooms (rather than a time to meet with teachers). We hope you can join us!
