2. You are important to me!

3. I am here to help you learn!

4. You are listened to!

5. I will hold you to VERY high expectations!

6. You are capable!

7. We will have fun! (I promise!)

                       See you soon!

Many of our students participate in the Wheeler After School Program. In these photos, a few classmates (as well as other "Wheeler Wolves") are experimenting in the Mad Science Program.
