Welcome Wadsworth Families~Welcome to a brand new year at Wadsworth Elementary School! My name is Mrs. Melanie McClure, and I am the new principal of Wadsworth. This past summer, our teachers, secretaries, nurses, custodians, and other critical support staff have been diligently working to make Wadsworth clean and bright for your children to learn in a safe, welcoming environment. I am looking forward to the day when the doors open for the new year so that I can welcome all of the students and their families and become a part of the Wadsworth family.
Our school has approximately 310 students in kindergarten through sixth grade. We also have an Early Childhood Development Program that is run by NISEC, our special education cooperative. The staff at Wadsworth is very enthusiastic and dedicated to meeting the individual needs of all of our students.
At Wadsworth, the parents, teachers, and support staff are all part of a unified family working hard to ensure the safety and well-being of all children while providing them with a challenging and rewarding educational experience. As parents, you play an integral role as a part of this family in the education of your child. Your involvement in your child’s education will help your child achieve more success and have a positive outlook on school. Please be sure to read the monthly newsletters and calendars that are on our website. Get to know your child’s teacher and stay updated on classroom and school events. I’d also like to encourage you to join our Parent Teacher Council that actively supports our staff in providing our children with the best educational experience and learning opportunities possible. Visitors are always welcome at Wadsworth Elementary School, and I encourage you to stop in. When visiting, please enter through the main doors and obtain a visitor's pass in the office.
I am truly excited to join the Wadsworth family and share this upcoming school year with you and your child. I would love the opportunity to meet you, so please feel free to stop by the main office to introduce yourself. Building a strong home-school partnership is important to me and vital to a child's successful educational journey. Thank you for entrusting us to nurture, encourage, challenge, and enjoy your precious ones as we embark on the 2015-2016 school year!
Mrs. Melanie McClure, Principal
