Our Patrols and SCA had a very successful year.  We'd like to thank patrol officers for a job well done: Captain Hayden Neiberline, Lieutenant Olivia Atiyeh, and Sargeants Savannah Tobin and Mackenzie Tobin.

SCA officers organized a food drive and school clean up, and created fun spirit days.  The officers are Rex Kady, President; Ethan McCabe, Vice-President; Ludie Stahl, Secretary; and Amelia Ely, Reporter.

Finally,  two additional staff members will be leaving Wakefield Forest this year.  We wish them the best of luck in their new endeavors:

  • Kristen Mihalick will be transitioning to a counselor position at Canterbury Woods Elementary School.
  • Chelsea Kelly-Sipe has accepted a position at a school closer to her home.

Early Release

Early Release Today, June 10


Please remember that today, Friday, June 10, the last day of school, is an early release day.  Students will be dismissed at 1:25 pm.



Many thanks to Ms. Muratore and the families who assisted in the digging up and transplanting of plants.  We are happy to report that many of our native plants are being safely held in an alternate location until the completion of the school renovation.



Yearbook Orders - updated link


Unfortunately, we do not have extra yearbooks for sale.  If you did not order a yearbook but would like to, you may do so through Strawbridge Studios. The yearbook costs $13.00 with a shipping fee (to your home) of $10.00.  

We had reports of the link that went home on Wednesday not working; please use this one instead.
