Congratulations to our Class of 2020!
This year's 5th grade class has had to be resilient in the fact that they missed the Talent Show, Spring Concert, Field Day, Run-A-Muck, School Fair, traditional year end field trips, recognition ceremony, circle ceremony, 5th grade luncheon, 5th grade memory night, and clap down ritual. Things they have been thinking about since Kindergarten.
The PTO is trying to provide a few things for our children (and parents too) to acknowledge all their hard work this year. We have heard so many nice things from families about how much it means to them and we couldn't agree with them more! Check out the 5th grade Lawn Signs provided by the PTO.
END OF SCHOOL YEAR PLANS
We were not able to host our bi-annual PTO meeting at the HANOC Center in April but we were able to deliver some much needed home schooling supplies to our families in May.
WOLCOTT WE MISS YOU SO MUCH!
June is almost here and there are only 3 weeks left in the school calendar. This year has been challenging, brought out so many different emotions in all of us, and tested our resolve. The one good thing that has come out of the last few months has been the school spirit that each and every Wolcott family has discovered.
We have learned just how much our children love Wolcott. The teachers, administration, staff, the building, the grounds, the friendships, and the traditions that have been absent from their lives everyday for the past few months mean so much to them.
5th Grade Parents!
The talent show auditions on 3/10 and 3/11 have cancelled and the talent show has been postponed. As soon as more information is available regarding a new date it will be posted here!
Thank you for your understanding.

The Co-President position is a great fit for a 2nd or 3rd grade parent. It is a two year commitment with the first year spent learning and supporting the Co-President. Second year you are then the lead Co-President for the next incoming board member. The PTO needs a President to take over in 2020.
