Dear Anne Wien Elementary Families,
We hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving at home as a family! I know that my own three children were wishing that we could just go straight into Winter Break, but with 4 full weeks until the next break, thank you for supporting your students and helping them stay on track here at school. Getting homework and school projects completed during this exciting time can be a challenge without extra help and reminders at home. The pace is going to be especially fast this month as we continue our regular studies while also including a number of special field trips, concerts, and other events. Thank you for staying in close contact with your child’s teacher. We’re looking forward to seeing your faces often over the coming weeks! Stay warm, be safe on those snowy roads, and enjoy the start of the holiday season!
Michael A. Angaiak, Principal
