The Wethersfield Public Schools are seeking children three years of age as of October 1, 2018 to participate in the Wethersfield Preschool Program for the 2018-2019 school year. We are only taking applicants for the three-year old program at this time. This program includes children with developmental delays and same-aged children who act as peer playmates. Classes are located at Samuel Webb Elementary School. Classes are 2.5 hours per day, Monday – Thursday. Children are assigned to a morning or afternoon session and parents will be notified of the assignment upon acceptance. Cost per year for this four-day program is $1,050.00.
Peer playmates will be selected through a two-tiered lottery system. Application deadline for the lottery is February 28, 2018. Due to the volume of the applications received, a lottery will be held to select potential peer playmates to participate in a screening. Those selected will be invited for a screening on Friday, March 16, 2018. The snow date is Friday, March 23, 2018. A second lottery will be held after the screening to fill the number of open slots.Parents interested in completing an application should call Mrs. Rosanne Zdrok at (860) 571-8141 to receive a registration application for the lottery

Once again, the WHS Computer Science students would like to invite kids in grades 4 - 8 and their parents or guardians to the WHS Family Hour of Code. The event will be in Room 402 at WHS on Thursday, December 7, from 7 - 8 PM (but you can arrive as early as 6:30 to avoid waiting in line). This is part of the world-wide "Hour of Code" celebration happening in December. You and your kids will be writing computer code to create colorful, noisy programs. You don't have to know anything at all about computer code; that's the point! We guarantee you will write your first code in ten minutes or less, and have fun doing it. You will be assisted by current and former WHS Comp Sci students, who will help every step of the way. We will be adding one or two new choices to the program, so if you have joined us before, please come again and see what's new.
The event is open to all employees and residents of Wethersfield, and their kids in grades 4 - 8. (If you need / want to bring younger kids, just let us know; we can adapt!)
You can sign up by completing the form at:
You can also see the attached flyer for a more colorful invitation, here:
Hope to see you there!
