We are happy to announce the addition of two swings to the WKS playground! Thanks to the efforts of Richard Mc , students can soar to new heights outside of the classroom. As the swings are very popular, students are taking turns to give everyone an opportunity to experience them.
Walking in Community
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.
