Dear Parents,

Last Friday our girls brought their dads to the annual Father-Daughter Dance.  Over 260 couples attended to dance the night away, and from the reactions we saw everyone had a good time.  Thank you to Amanda Hebden and her team of volunteers for planning this great event for our families!

In the case you are looking for childcare arrangements for summer, please consider our Mehlville Summer Academy.  Students from Wohlwend will attend Blades Elementary this summer.  Mrs. Ochoa, our ELL teacher, will be the principal at that school.  Summer Academy takes place during weekdays from 8:00 AM until 3:00 PM from June 4th through June 29th.  This year’s Academy will be focused on enrichment classes, such as cooking, mystery Skype sessions, and STEM (solving big problems using science, technology, engineering or math).  The best part about Summer Academy is it’s free for district residents.  To enroll, please follow this link:  For more information you can contact Mrs. Ochoa at

Finally, the format is changing this spring across all schools in the Mehlville School District. There will not be designated conference nights as in past years. Your child’s teacher will be reaching out to you to schedule a conference if they feel the need to meet with you during this time period.  This conference could include face-to-face, phone, or email communication. If you would like to schedule a conference, please contact your child’s teacher.

Here’s a calendar of upcoming events:

Tuesday, February 20thPAWS will hold their monthly meeting at 7:00 PM in the library. 

Thursday, February 15thThe second grading term ends.  Report cards will be sent home with the students on Friday, March 2nd.  Yearbook orders are also due. 

Friday, February 16thThe students have no school due to a teacher-work day.

Monday, February 19thThere will be no school in observance of President’s Day. 

Those are all of our updates for this week.  Have a wonderful weekend!
