Principal's Message

May 20th, 2022


Greetings Wicklund Families, 


We hope you are enjoying the nice warm weather. We are now down to our last nine days. As a reminder, Monday, May 30th, is Memorial Day, and there is no school. 


We have a lot of exciting events upcoming, but before we get to that, I wanted to congratulate a few of our Wicklund teams for doing an outstanding job. Our 7th/8th-grade coed soccer team took first place this year. They had an undefeated season and played great team soccer. Congratulations to them. I am also excited to announce that Wicklund's Math Olympiad team took 2nd and 5th place in the team events, and we had one student who had a perfect score in the individual event. Our sports and academic teams excelled this year, and we are very proud of their hard work and commitment to excellence. 


As we wrap up the school year, we have a few important dates to share:

  • Wednesday, June 1st, is our 8th-grade promotion ceremony starting at 5:15 pm. We are excited to celebrate our promoting 8th graders.
  • Thursday, June 2nd, is our field day. Teachers may be reaching out for parent volunteers, so please get in touch with your student's teacher if you are interested in volunteering. 
  • Friday, June 3rd, is the last day of school and our staff vs. 8th-grade softball game. The staff is trying to maintain our undefeated streak, but the 8th grade is determined to end it. 


Finally, as with each school year, we have some staff announcements. We are sad to announce that Vice Principal Karim will not be returning to Wicklund next year. As many of you already know, Mrs. Karim has decided to focus her time and energy on her new baby. We are excited for Mrs. Karim, but we will miss her and know our school community will too. If you see Mrs. Karim around, wish her your best.


We are pleased to announce that Mrs. Heidi Beck will be joining our team as our new vice-principal next year. Mrs. Beck comes to us with experience as a 3rd, 4th, and 5th-grade teacher and an induction coach, and summer school principal. More importantly, Mrs. Beck also has four children with her husband, who is also a teacher! Mrs. Beck is leaving Fremont Unified school district to join our team in Lammersville. We know you and your student are going to love Mrs. Beck. When you see her around campus next year, please introduce yourself. 


We know that this year will finish with lots of fun and excitement. We also know that we are set to continue to do great things next year.


Thank you for your continued support of our school.


We appreciate you.
