WGSD is now enrolling for the 2020-2021 school year. This is for NEW students entering our district. Any student that is currently attending a Waterford Graded Elementary school DOES NOT need to enroll for the next school year as a NEW STUDENT. All parents/guardians will be required to review your student’s data in August during our Skyward Family Access Online-Registration. Any family who knows a student will not be returning for the next school year should notify your school secretary.
During the week of February 10-14, WSGD schools participated in the "Our Community Cares" initiative. Student leadership groups at all four schools partnered with WUHS, the Chamber of Commerce, and other community agencies to collect clothing and other essentials. These items will be used to help local families through family resource rooms at each WGSD school and through donations to Love Inc.
Evergreen students have the opportunity to donate their Eagle Bucks to purchase items in the Eagle Store for kids in other countries. Some items that will be sent to the kids are pencils, erasers, rulers, writing tablets and pencil sharpeners! Way to go Evergreen!

Dear Families-We are so excited to report to you about the success of Secret Santa's Holiday Shop! The Eagle Leaders took time during their recess and after school to decorate the STEAM lab. We had volunteers sign up to help at the last minute! All shoppers had fun purchasing surprises for their loved ones. We would like to thank the Eagle Leaders for doing an excellent job, being festive, and getting great compliments from teachers and parents about how helpful they were. We would also like to take the time to thank our parent/student volunteers! Without your help, we could not have done it without all of you! Merry Christmas and thank you again! PBIS Team
