Dear Waverly Elementary Middle School Families,
It gives me great pleasure to greet you as the 2014-2015 school year is about to begin. I hope that you are enjoying a rewarding summer vacation and eagerly anticipating the many exciting and new learning experiences of the coming school year. We have prepared our curriculum to include a S.T.E.A.M. program that integrates Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts, and Math. Our students will be developing skills to compete academically on both a local level as well as a global level. They will be receiving a rigorous curriculum that will stimulate and develop their imagination and critical thinking, as well as refining their cognitive and creative skills.
On August 22, 9:00 a.m.-11:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. - 6:00 p.m. Waverly will be having a "Sneak-a-Peek at your seat" open house where all students, parents, family members, can come to the school and meet and greet the Waverly teachers, staff, etc.
Baltimore City Schools will open for students Monday, August 25, 2014. Waverly will begin 8:45 a.m. Breakfast will be served from 8:45 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. in the classroom. School will dismiss at 3:25 p.m. I do ask that you refrain from early dismissals due to the fact that this will impact your students learning. All early dismissals will require documentation.
In addition all Baltimore City Schools will be implementing a new Visitors Pass System called ACCESS 411 where all visitors entering the building must present a valid photo identification, Please be prepared.
Every student who received free lunch and breakfast last school year will continue this year until the approval process is completed, which will take approximately two weeks. Please turn in your lunch applications immediately or your child may not continue to receive free lunch.
The after school care will be provided by the Y of Central MD, more information will be provided as we approach opening day.
Waverly Elementary Middle School is also a uniform school. Students at Waverly will continue to wear uniforms. It is our goal to have 100% participation this school year. The P.T.A. joins us in this effort.
*We will introduce rewards days when students may dress down for excellent behavior and grades. Stay tuned.
Student uniforms are as follows:
PreK-5 - Light Blue Polo Top and Khaki Bottoms
6th Grade - Royal Blue Polo Top and Khaki Bottoms
7th Grade- Orange Polo Top and Khaki Bottoms
8th Grade - Purple Polo Top and Khaki Bottoms
We believe that adherence to the wearing of uniforms will help families reduce cost associated with purchasing clothes as well as: enhancing school spirit, increasing positive student discipline and helping develop a positive school climate. We strongly encourage your support by helping us meet our goal. Please send your child to school in a uniform every day.
