Hello Wicklund Families!
I am pleased to share our Wicklund School Foundation’s Spring Trivia Night and Dinner is scheduled for Friday, April 17. The event will be from 6-10PM and held here in Mountain House. Details will be coming out soon to purchase tickets for this must-attend event which benefits our Wicklund scholars.
Our upcoming state testing in English language arts, math and science, known as CAASPP, is coming up in the month of April. Testing will begin the week of April 20 and continue through May 1. Scholars in grades 3-8 will be taking these test to show their mastery of what they have learned this school year.
Spring break is a couple weeks away! Spring break begins on March 30 and ends on April 3. Also, April 13, the day after Easter, is a day off for all Wicklund scholars. Please mark your calendars.
Having good attendance makes a difference in scholars’ learning and succeeding. Our attendance has improved since last year but we still have a ways to go to reduce chronic absenteeism at Wicklund (scholars who have 18 or more absences per school year). Moving forward, page two of our Wicklund Times will include information on the benefits of good attendance. We will also be sending out every Monday via social media information and facts regarding attendance and will be instituting attendance incentives for our scholars. For more information regarding attendance, please go to attendanceworks.org. Thanks for helping ensure our scholars are at school to learn and succeed and are not chronically absent to school.
On behalf of the Wicklund staff, thank you for your continued support!
