  • Wesleyan Parent Community Bible Study- The Bridge to Racial Unity You are invited to a Bible study that will begin this spring entitled The Bridge to Racial Unity. This Bible study was created to allow groups to come together in love and to seek reconciliation, understanding, and support in a community of believers regarding issues of race. The expectation is that we will develop an awareness of God’s desire for us to live as a unified body of Christ, as well as taking steps to transform current views and create a vision regarding racial diversity.
    The Bible study will last 9 weeks and will cover 3 units: The Bridge of Truth, The Bridge of Justice, and The Bridge of Reconciliation. Classes begin in early February, and there are currently two class offerings that will meet once a week. You can sign-up to meet on Tuesday from 6:00-7:30pm or Thursday from 7:00-8:30pm (you must meet consistently with the same class). Space is limited to 12 per class, but we hope to have more parents sign up, which will allow us to offer more classes. If there is enough interest, additional classes will be added. Once classes are formed, the group may choose to be flexible on times.

    If you are interested, please email jpinkett-smith@wesleyanschool.org to sign-up. The deadline to sign-up is January 30th.
  • Hospitality Committee Volunteers The Hospitality Committee is looking for volunteers and donations for the January and February Saturday Evaluation/Interview days - particularly on February 2nd. We are looking for parents who love Wesleyan and could chat with prospective parents during evaluations. Breakfast snacks and drinks can be delivered to Judy Hughes’ office the Friday before the scheduled Saturday date. Please clearly label the items “Hospitality”.

    If you are available and feel inclined to volunteer, please use the SignUp Genius on Blackbaud.
  • Annual Wesleyan Blood Drive. Be a Life Saver! Sign up to Donate Blood
    The 14th annual Wesleyan Blood Drive will be held on Friday, January 18th from 8am to 4pm in McKeever.
    Approximately 36,000 units of red blood cells are needed each day in the US. Every 2 seconds someone in the US needs blood. Our goal this year is 74 pints of blood and you can help.
    All students 16+, faculty, staff and parents are encouraged to donate.
    If you are under 18, you must have a signed parental consent form available from the school nurse or on the SUG page on Blackbaud.
    If you are not able to give blood, there are other ways you can help. Sign up to donate food and drinks for donors and staff on the day.
  • Emergency appeal info: On Monday, January 14, the American Red Cross will announce an emergency need for blood and platelet donations as our inventory rapidly declines following the holidays. As you know this is a difficult season for collections and right now, blood products are being distributed to hospitals faster than donations are coming in. While our November appeal was successful thanks to the many efforts of our staff, we unfortunately saw another drop in donations in December. We collected about 27,000 fewer blood and platelet donations the weeks of Christmas and New Year’s than needed to sustain a sufficient blood supply, as busy holiday schedules kept donors away and fewer drives were held. Further exacerbating our challenges today, many areas of the country now face severe winter storms and widespread flu outbreaks, which also affects blood drives and donor availability. While we would have preferred not to launch another appeal so soon, we must take appropriate steps to ensure patient needs are met. Thank you for your help in doing so.
  • Update Information in Blackbaud Parents please check your child’s Blackbaud account to see that your child’s address(es) is correct. We will be sending home report cards in January based on this information. Please make the changes in Blackbaud and contact the business office as well, if you have recently moved. Also, be sure that you have at least one emergency contact listed for your child in Blackbaud, in addition to mother and father. Thank you for your cooperation!

  • Spring Parent Reboot/Reconnect with Mr. Erb – Wednesday, 1/23, 10 a.m.
    This event is hosted by the parent reps on Wednesday, January 23rd at 10 a.m. in the Brammer-Wilkinson room, immediately following Chapel. It’s a wonderful opportunity to learn more about great school-wide volunteering options coming up this spring (like this year’s Artist Market!), ways to get connected within our community, and to ask any questions you have now that we are starting a new semester. Mr. Erb will be attending, and it’s a great way to reconnect with him, as well.

This is a great opportunity to get out in nature, get some exercise, and have fellowship! There is limited space so pick up your permission form outside Ms. Sheppard’s room (W273). If you can’t make this hike, there will be three more this semester, so stay tuned!

  • The Addams Family Tickets for the Wolf Players winter musical, The Addams Family, are now available for online reservation here. The show will be performed February 6th at 6:30 pm, 7th at 7:00 pm, 8th at 7:00 pm, and 9th at 2:00 and 7:00 pm. THE ADDAMS FAMILY features an original story, and it’s every father’s nightmare. Wednesday Addams, the ultimate princess of darkness, has grown up and fallen in love with a sweet, smart young man from a respectable family – a man her parents have never met. And if that weren’t upsetting enough, Wednesday confides in her father and begs him not to tell her mother. Now, Gomez Addams must do something he’s never done before – keep a secret from his beloved wife, Morticia. Everything will change for the whole family on the fateful night they host a dinner for Wednesday’s ‘normal’ boyfriend and his parents. Do not miss what promises to be the funniest musical in Wolf Player history. Feb. 6-9
