Parent Survey
Because Wheaton Academy places a high value on parent feedback, we will conduct a parent survey in the upcoming weeks.  This year, we have once again enlisted the help of SchoolRIGHT to complete a CONFIDENTIAL PARENT SURVEY for our school community.  The survey will launch on Tuesday morning, May 2, from surveys@schoolright.net.  Please watch for the survey in your email, and if necessary, check your spam folder.  The survey will only be open for a short time, so please take a few minutes to share your thoughts!  Note: Survey invitations are email specific and will not work if forwarded to another email address.

Final Exam Preparation
Only four weeks left! Why do things seem to quickly fall apart as the end of a semester approaches? For many students, managing both current and make-up work, preparing for exams, and completing big projects can be overwhelming and add significant stress heading into final exam week. And if that wasn’t enough, the nicer weather encourages us to spend more time outside instead of staying inside and getting our work done. If you want to get a head start on preparations for the final stretch and finish the year strong, visit our website at www.thecenterforlifelonglearning.org to sign up to work with one of our executive function coaches!
