Principal's Message

Dear Wealthy Elementary Families,

Welcome back from the long weekend! I hope everyone was able to take some time on Monday to reflect on the teachings of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. At our assembly on Friday, we learned about Dr. King’s “beginnings” and thought of ways we could also “begin” including with kindness, a smile, or an open heart. To view a slideshow from the presentation, please click here. Pictures from our MLK Day activities will be available on the Flickr site found here. Teachers continue to embed these lessons throughout the school year. We also look forward to an additional PTO and EGR Schools Foundation enhancement occurring in February when Bright Star Theater will perform for our students.       


EGR Now&Forever
Wealthy Elementary is hosting two EGR Now&Forever informational events on Thursday, February 7 from 8:30 - 9:30 AM and 6:00 - 7:00 PM.  I encourage all our families to come and learn more about this historic effort to raise a sustainable source of funding for critical programs, supports and enhancements in our schools.

Winter Weather Reminders
It feels as though winter has finally arrived, and I know students will be excited to go sledding, use our snow targets, and build snow creations during recess. Please remember to send students with all necessary cold weather gear for recesses. It is helpful to label items with your child’s name, so we can return any misplaced items to the correct owner. If the wind chill is below zero, students will remain indoors.

PTO Family Movie Night
This Friday is the PTO sponsored Family Movie Night! Please join us in your pajamas, bring a blanket, and make yourself comfortable on the gymnasium floor as we watch Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation. To learn more about the movie, please click
here. This event is for the whole family and children must be supervised by an adult to attend. The PTO and Student Leadership Team will be selling popcorn, candy, and water for enjoyment during the film. I hope to see you there at 6:30 PM!   

Warm Regards,

Carlye Allen
Wealthy Elementary Principal
