Our annual Bedford Falls Bookfair starts on Monday! During the first week classes will come in and review and make wish lists. Classes will then return the following week to purchase. Everyone is welcome to come anytime during the day to shop at the fair during the two weeks that it is open.
To make the bookfair a success, we need your help! We need volunteers throughout the two week period. Please have a look at our sign up, and see if you can help us for a slot or two. It is a lot of fun so please consider giving of your time.

NATIONAL PTA SCHOOL OF EXCELLENCE
The Wakefield Elementary PTA knows that a strong partnership among our families, school leaders, and community at-large is important for the success of our students and school. That’s why we are participating in the National PTA School of Excellence program, which celebrates partnerships between PTA and schools to enrich the educational experience and overall well-being for all students.
At a National PTA School of Excellence, families feel welcomed and empowered to support student success, and PTA is a key partner for continuous school improvement. We feel Wakefield Elementary and Wakefield Elementary PTA can achieve that together – and the result will be national, state and community-wide visibility for the positive impact we are making together at our school.
We need your help! As part of the process, National PTA requests feedback from families at two points in the school year – the beginning and end. Your feedback in the beginning of the program will help to generate a customized Roadmap to Excellence, which will provide specific recommendations for improving our family-school partnership and achieving excellence.
Please take 5-10 minutes to reflect on your experience at this school and complete the survey that follows. This survey is completely anonymous.
