Parents/guardians enrolling an incoming kindergarten student must contact the school at 765-471-9321 as soon as possible to begin the registration process.

Families need to provide the school office with the child's official birth certificate or current passport (no photo copies, hospital certificates or baptismal certificates will be accepted), immunization record and proof of residency. All documents need to be received in the office prior to April 2. Please contact the school if you have any questions or concerns.

Fourth Grade Symphony Field Trip

 

The fourth grade recently experience the Lafayette Symphony on a field trip to the annual Lollipop Concert. While in this expererience, they witnessed their music teacher, Ruth Ewigleben, performing. You see, Mrs. Ewigleben is the first chair flutist for the Lafayette Symphony Orchestra. She plays beautifully. We sometimes have the rare privilege to hear her practicing while she takes her lunch or before/after school. The symphony is an experience for our students.

GRADE 3 IREAD

 

On March 18, 2019 all third grade students at Wea Ridge Elementary School will be taking the IREAD3 Test. This test is used as a basic measure of your child's ability to read. Passing this test is a determination in most cases for passing into fourth grade.  A copy of a parent letter and a sample page should have come home with your child.  Your child's teacher will/has been in contact with you regarding your child's progress this school year in reading. Please work closely with her and continue to make reading a priority in your home.

Daylight Saving Time

 

At 2:00 on Sunday morning, March 10, all clocks will be moved forward one hour for Daylight Saving Time. So, please mark your calendars and before you head off to bed Saturday evening, move your clocks forward one hour. It means less sleep for one night, but you will be on time Sunday and for the days that lie ahead.

Bundle Up

 

It's cold outside!

 

TSC policy is that all students MUST go outside unless they have a doctor's note for a specific time frame. We will continue to go outside unless the wind chill is below 20. Please make sure your child has a jacket, hat and gloves for outdoor recess. Recent studies show that outside play helps to develop the prefrontal cortex.  It calms anxiety and refocuses the brain. Sweatshirts and jackets should accompany students to school and recess. Please label your child's belongings either inside the pocket, cuff or on a tag so that when they misplace them we can return them!  Talk to your child about the need to be proactive in dressing for the weather! Thank you for partnering with us to keep your child safe and active!

 

Schkool Lunch with apple

School Lunch:

 

Fast food is not permitted in the cafeteria at Wea Ridge. If you are coming to have lunch with your student you may order a hot lunch by calling ahead to the office the morning of your visit or bringing a sack lunch from home. TSC and school policy states that any food purchased as "carryout" is considered "fast food".

 

We love to have guests eat lunch with us! It is $2.70/Adult and $1.90/Child. Tippecanoe School Corporation Policy does not allow us to charge a guest lunch on a students account. We accept cash or checks. Please be aware, that we are not allowed to give change back, so the correct amount is appreciated.

 

Thanks so much! If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the school office at 765-471-9321
