Principal's Message

We had an exciting end of the year at Wait Primary!  Our students experienced a variety of learning opportunities.  Our first graders traveled to Wagon Trails Animal Park and loved visiting with the animals.  They used their up close encounter to help with writing their animal research paper.  Mr. Izzo facilitated a wonderful musical experience where our students enjoyed listening to and learning about the violin.  Field Day was a huge success!  Mrs. Hendrix, Mrs. Schwerdtfeger, and Mrs. Windle planned a fantastic day filled with fun activities and physical fitness!  Our PTA supported this event through donations and volunteers.  Thank you to Stacey Leonardi, our PTA VP, and the many volunteers who participated in this day and other events throughout the year.   Our preschool families enjoyed the end of year celebration and preschool graduation ceremony.  The graduates looked adorable in their caps!  Our first graders ended the year with a beach themed celebration and our kindergartners ended the year with a camping themed celebration!  Teachers in both grade levels planned lots of great events for the kids to kick off the start of summer! 

Our kindergarteners and first graders were visited by superhero librarian, Ingrid Wenger, from the Pierce Streetsboro Library.  She encouraged them to participate in their summer reading program.  Please stop into the public library to learn more!  8990 Kirby Lane  Streetsboro, OH 44241  330-626-4458

Another way to have fun with reading this summer… We encourage all of our students to participate in the summer reading program through Scholastic by logging their minutes online.  Your child should have received a screen name and password from school.  If you don’t have this paper or are having trouble with your screen name or login, please email Jill Selak, our district librarian.  She will be checking email throughout the summer, so please don’t hesitate to contact her.  Wait students have already logged hundreds of minutes… got to  to log more minutes, earn digital rewards and learn about great new books to read.  You will also find the link on our district webpage on menu on the left side of the page titled Summer Reading Program.  

The staff at Wait wishes our students a safe summer filled with exciting adventures!
