Dear Wagner Parents & Guardians,  
At our 1st General PA Meeting of the year on 9/27 at 8:40am, we will have a special expedited election for 3 Members-at-Large Positions for the 2019-2020 PA Executive Board. These 3 Members-at-Large positions will be filled by Incoming Parents & Guardians only.
Due to the resignation of the Co-Secretary positions on the 2019-2020 Parents' Association Executive Board, a special expedited election for Secretary or Co-Secretary will take place at this month's PA meeting. Nominations will be taken from the floor and an election will follow. These secretary or co-secretary positions are available to any Returning or New Family that would like to run. 
There will also be an election for 2 positions on our School Leadership Team (SLT). These positions will be filled by any Returning or Incoming parent/guardian.
All parents/guardians are welcome and encouraged to attend. If you are interested in running, or have questions, please email PA Co-Presidents Pamela Bernstein or Eleni Metaxae at

Help people of the Bahamas by donating

Dear Wagner Families, 

As many of you probably know the Bahamas was hit by Hurricane Dorian. This left the citizens of the Bahamas without homes and supplies they need to survive.

To help the Bahamas out, The Clinton School has started a collection. I asked if Wagner could join them in this effort and we are going to work together to collect items that will be shipped to the Bahamas. 
There will be plastic bins outside of room 126. If you can, please donate the following items:

 *Feminine hygiene products
 *Powdered baby formula 
 *Basic Tioletries

You can donate until Friday October 4th. 

Every donation will make a difference on someone life!

Thank you!
