Dear Wakefield Forest Families,

We are enjoying the change of the leaves as we enter into fall. Please make sure your child dresses for the weather as we will eat outside and have outdoor recess when we are able to. We ask that you please check to ensure that you have extra masks for your children in their backpack as we are seeing more and more broken masks during the day.

Yesterday we honored Indigenous Peoples' Day. Indigenous Peoples' Day is a holiday that celebrates and honors Native American peoples and commemorates their histories and cultures. On October 8, 2021, U.S. President Joe Biden became the first U.S. President to formally recognize the holiday, by signing a presidential proclamation declaring October 11, 2021 to be a national holiday.

Thank you.

Sharyn Prindle
