Fall 2018 is just around the corner, and we are currently interviewing families. We have a small group of accepted students and the Board of Directors has decided that we will open this Fall.
Check out the uniforms in the background. We are using Land's End, and they designed some beautiful uniforms for us. The children have a choice of colors for their tops, and boots are Navy leggings/pants/shorts. Every child will have a nice fleece and a cool book bag as well. I cannot wait to see the children in uniform on the first day of school!
We at Wilson-Kindelan are so thrilled to welcome aboard Maryanne Rogers as an integral part of our school formation. Maryanne has broad experience in the field of education as a former policymaker who received an MEd in Education Research, Measurement and Evaluation at Boston College while working as a graduate research assistant in the TIMSS & PIRLS International Study Center and the Center for the Study of Testing, Evaluation and Educational Policy.
Maryanne also chaired and served as a member of the Weston School Board for eight years. In addition, she was appointed to the Massachusetts English Language Arts Curriculum Framework Review Panel charged with revamping the statewide K-12 curriculum standards.
Finally, Maryanne worked as a healthcare actuary at CIGNA and is a Fellow of the Society of Actuaries. For twenty years, she served on the Society of Actuaries Education and Examination Committee assisting with the development and grading of actuarial exams. She grew up in Pittsburgh and graduated from University of Notre Dame in the first coed class with a BA in Mathematics.
Maryanne brings gentle leadership, great intelligence and a much needed dose of humor to the work that goes on at the school. As the mother of three sons, she considers what she learned from her parenting to be one of her greatest assets and best life experience.
With the summer coming to a close, everyone is in a need of new school supplies. This fall, the Wilson-Kindelan School is holding a fundraiser for a new whiteboard. In the multi-purpose room the specialists hold art, music and physical education classes. They have expressed interest in having a whiteboard installed to enhance their lessons and demonstrations.
We have set a goal of $250 for the whiteboard and installation. Any donation, large or small, will help us achieve our goal. Won't you help us achieve this goal? We appreciate all of your support for the school and helping to obtain all the necessary equipment and materials to help make the Wilson-Kindelan School the best possible school that it can be! Thank you for your support!
