Hello, Wagner Families!

Please see a few announcements:

1. Thursday, September 5th is the first day back to school. It is a full day of school (8:20 AM-2:40 PM). 
2. Manhattan Youth (MY) after-school programming starts September 9th. There is a link on the school's website (home page), to see the fall class schedule as well as a link to sign up for the newsletter. 
3. A reminder that Wagner gym tee's will be sold in gym class for the first two weeks of school (Gym shirts are $10). After those first weeks, the PA school store will resume. 
4. A reminder that students need locks for the gym lockers during gym class. 
5. If you ordered Edukits, the school supply kit should have been delivered to your home by now. If you ordered the teacher supply kits, the kits arrived safely at Wagner and will be distributed to teachers next week. Thank you to all who ordered them!
6. Please click to see Wagner's  September Calendar and  October Calendar.  
7. For the first day of school locations, see flyer below. 
8. Arista opportunities! Please see opportunities for your student to volunteer and earn Arista in-school service hours on Tuesday and Wednesday of next week. 
9. Parent volunteers are also needed to help with the Welcome Folders. Please scroll down for signup links. 
10. Last year we had an amazing team of parents, that helped support the Lost and Found. We were able to have a volunteer per day, to help maintain daily order. Most days, the commitment was at most, 15-20 minutes, to hang up clothing, empty water bottles and food from lunch boxes, and sort them into specific containers. If you are interested in doing this needed service this year, please email me at: sgonzalez@mail.wagner167.org. 
11. Class placement postcards were mailed out by the main office staff Friday, August 30th. Expect to receive the postcard by Wednesday, September 4th. **If you do not receive the postcard by Wednesday, please note that all staff will have rosters with students' names and class numbers on September 5th. Staff will be located outside and inside the building on Thursday morning. 
12. Updating your address in ATS. If you need to update your student's home address, 
please make a copy of one of the following:
* an electric bill
* the front page of your lease
* a tax bill
* a letter from a city, state, or federal agency displaying your name and your new address
 **Feel free to cross out all dollar amounts; Ms. Deane, Wagner's Student Services Manager, just needs to see your names and address.
 **Have your child write their name, OSIS number, and class number on it, stating that this is an address change, and have your child drop it off with Ms. Deane in the front office during the first days of school. 
13. MetroCards will be distributed within the first few weeks of school. I will send out a signupgenius soon about signing up to help organize and distribute MetroCards. 
14. Please visit our website for the summer homework assignment, school supplies, Manhattan Youth information, and more! 


Please see 2 volunteer opportunities below, for next Tuesday, September 3rd. 
Thank you!

An enormous thank you to all the parents and students, that came to pick up, take home, wash, fold, and return, all the end of year Lost and Found clothing, at the end of June. The following picture does not show how enormous these bags were, filled to the brim with folded clean clothes. The bags filled the landing and continued down the stairs. Acacia Housing Network staff came to pick up the items and were so delighted to receive them.
So again... A huge thank you to all who helped make that possible!!
Wagner Families are AMAZING!!
