BOOKFAIR FAMILY NIGHT
PTA MEETING & CUP STACKING NIGHT!

Thank you to everyone who braved the cold weather and attended our Family Night at the Bookfair, PTA Meeting and Cup Stacking Event on Thursday night. Participants were part of the world wide record breaking attempt!

Kona Ice was there too, and the enthusiastic response from students proved that it is never too cold to indulge in an icy treat!

COSTUME BINGO PHOTOS!

We had a great turnout for our Costume Bingo night on October 26! Lots of families came dressed in costumes, played bingo and ate pizza.

Check below to see some of the photos taken at the event. Who knows, you may even end up in the Costume Bingo section in this year's yearbook!

 

FAMILY SCARY SKATE NIGHT!


We had a great turn out on Friday night for our SCARY FAMILY FUN night!!! Over 140 students came to skate, and of course many parents and teachers joined in the fun as well.

The following students won the costume competition:

Best Ghost: Colby Jenny
Best Monster: Scott Scherrer
Prettiest: Tristen Morgan
Most Original: Aubriana McCuen
Scariest: Alaina Stobie
Cutest: Leigh Ann Grantham

Students - and some teachers and parents - came dressed in a myriad of costumes, but the one thing everyone had in common, was that fun was had by all.

WALK TO SCHOOL DAY

On Wednesday, October 3rd, Wakefield Elementary participated in International Walk to School Day. We started off with a small group at 8am, but by the time we set off, the numbers had grown, and students and parents joined the group along the way. Thanks to everyone who participated, and particularly to Mr. Hill, who co-ordinated the event.

A PICTORIAL VIEW OF SPIRIT NIGHT AT
MILTON'S PIZZA & PASTA

The PTA would like to extend a huge thanks to all the families (and teachers!) who joined us at Milton's on Tuesday night! Despite a tornado warning just before dismissal; and torrential rain, the skies eventually cleared and we had a great turn out! We would also like to thank Milton's Pizza & Pasta, who continue to be great supporters of our school and helped us have a memorable night!

Many families met our new principal, Ms. Privott and were also warmly greeted by our teacher guest servers, Mrs. Jenny, Mrs. Merrin, Mrs. Wagoner, Mrs. Johnson, Ms. Gaffney, Ms. Rogers and Mrs. Mary Williams.

We had a very successful night and raised $434.62 - that's our best Spirit Night EVER and will definitely help us towards our goal of getting more smart boards and document readers for the school!!!!

Here are a few of those who went, be it for take out or dining in!

SPIRIT WEEK IN REVIEW

Thanks to everyone who embraced Spirit Week and got into the "spirit" of things!

It was a blast seeing everyone get so involved. It has certainly made for fun photos, a selection of which will definitely make it into the yearbook.

Here are a few photos of how our friends looked...

BOX TOPS NIGHT AT FOOD LION

Box Tops Night at Food Lion was a big success. Thanks to everyone who came out and supported the school!
