Wonderland’s annual Back to School BBQ will take place on Saturday, Aug. 27th from 4 to 7pm. The BBQ is a great chance for students and parents to reconnect and meet new families. There’ll be live music, food trucks will be on hand, some with vegetarian options, and Spiritwear will be sold. A not-to-be-missed event!
On Tuesday, August 16th, 2016, Wonderland will begin a slightly revised bell schedule, with Early Dismissal ending at 1:40pm, starting with the very first day of school. This is a slightly longer day than last year. Regular days will still have the first bell at 8:05am and dismissal at 2:29pm.
Wonderland, as well as the Laurel Canyon community, gives back during Big Sunday on May 3rd from 12-4pm. Each grade has an activity that helps support a non-profit or school project. Starting Monday, April 27th, bring in canned goods and gently used clothing, blankets, towels, toys and books to benefit local charities. Write a letter to someone who needs a kind word, make a flower pot to brighten someone’s day, help build a sun tile, or beautify the campus. Snow Cones and Lemonade will be sold and a food truck and live music will also be on hand.
This day is devoted to compassion for others. Come, teach the gift of giving!
Join Principal Teer, members of the faculty and staff, and other Wonderland families, for a Spring Family Council facilitated by the WoC Student Representatives, on April 30th at 3pm. For the first time this year, students in 3rd-5th grades elected fellow classmates as WoC Student Representatives. From facilitating Family Councils to leading the school wide Peaceful Warriors Assembly, these inspiring student leaders showed us all how to be Coyotes Who Care! Thank you to everyone who helped make this a great year for Way of Council and the Wonderland Community!
