Wayne Trace Grover Hill Elementary News
The sounds of birds, kids on bikes, and people mowing the lawn are all indicators that another school year is coming to a close. Turning the calendar to May, we notice the end-of-year activities and field trips are near. Take some time to read over the many different events below and mark your calendar for those you would like to attend.
First, our fifth and sixth-grade band students will take part in the Spring Band Concert along with the high school band. The band program is on Tuesday, May 21 at 6:30. We hope you can attend as the students have been practicing all year, and this will be their chance to show how good they have become.
Second, this year’s WTGH kindergarten program is on Thursday, May 23 at 9:15 am. The kindergarten teachers along with Mrs. Schmidt have worked together on this year’s program. Mrs. Miller, Mrs. Walls, Miss Cavender, Mrs. Schmidt and I hope you will join us as we celebrate the end of another successful school year.
Next, for the past six years, we have rewarded the students at the end of each quarter. During these six years, we have often talked about adding a fifth reward. This year we found a fifth reward to offer to those students who meet all four quarterly awards. Parents, this special reward will be on Thursday, May 23rd. If you have questions concerning this reward, contact the office and ask for Mr. Wilson.
Then, we have the annual Carnival/Olympic Day. This year the PTO Carnival and Olympic Day will be held on Friday, May 24. Carnival and Olympic Day is always an exciting time for the students, but a lot of work for the PTO members. Each year the PTO provides a variety of activities for the students. At this time, we would like to thank the PTO for everything they do for the Grover Hill students and teachers.
On Tuesday, May 28th we will hold this year’s awards assemblies. The awards assembly for grades 1 – 3 will be at 9:10 am. The awards program for grades 4 – 6 will follow at 10:15 am. We want to invite you to come and be a part of these awards ceremonies.
In closing, we would like to recognize someone who has decided to retire at the end of the year. This person has been with WTGH for 30 years but has been the face and voice of WTGH for the past 27 years. Anytime you walked into the building; this person made you feel welcome no matter who you were. During a conversation with a group of parents, the words used to describe this person were: compassionate, friendly, multitasker, and heart of gold. Yes, these words are very fitting to describe Mrs. Marcie Fiedler. Marcie has decided that this will be her last year at WTGH. Marcie, THANK YOU for the care you demonstrated towards every student, every parent, for caring for the WTHG staff and setting a warm and favorable climate at WTGH. Marcie, we hate to see you leave, and since we can’t talk you into staying, we wish you and Mike the very best as you move on to the next stage of your lives.
Kevin E. Wilson, Principal
