Waxpool Elementary School

Welcome to Waxpool Elementary School, home of the Piranhas! Visit us at lcps.org/Waxpool and on Twitter, @WaxpoolES.

Join us for a special virtual coffee talk at 4:30 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. today. Join instructions were emailed 7/10.

Many of us are still in the process of making a decision for the 2020-2021 school year. This coffee talk will provide you with an opportunity to ask questions in "real time" to help guide you through this decision-making process. With that said, please understand that it is highly unlikely that we will have all of the answers at this point in time, so be gentle!

Summer Update

Check out this video update from Mr. Pellegrino and don't forget to make your instruction decision in PVUE.

The deadline parents and guardians must register their choice has been extended to Wednesday, July 15, at 8 a.m.

W.E. 💙 our custodians!

While many are enjoying summer, they have been working tirelessly cleaning our building top to bottom, and EVERYTHING in between. We appreciate all that you do!

Happy Independence Day!

It may be summer and numerous safety measures are in place, but we can still discuss how to further Project Based Learning no matter what type of instruction takes place! #PBLworks

[06/21/20]   Wishing all our amazing dads out there a happy Father's Day!

It’s the last day of school! I don’t think this is how anyone envisioned us saying goodbye and ending our inaugural year together. I found these photos uploaded EXACTLY one year ago today and it’s amazing how far W.E. have come. Our students, families, community, staff… EVERYONE, have truly helped transform this once empty building into a home. Thank you for trusting in Waxpool Elementary School and helping make this year a success – your support, patience, and dedication are very much appreciated and do not go unnoticed.

#PiranhaPride #WaxpoolES

Let's extend a HUGE Piranha congratulations to our OotM team that recently participated in the World Finals! The team consisted of 3rd graders Diya, Keerthi, Rithvik, Shrey, Sia, Sindhu, and Gowtham from 2nd grade! Together, they worked to solve the problem "Classics - The Effective Detective: Mary Celeste, The Ghost Ship".


Our Transition Ceremony looks a bit different this year, but today W.E. are excited to honor and celebrate our 5th grade class as they prepare to continue their journey next year in middle school.

84. That's how many student bags we have left to hand out.

EVERY child has a bag. If you haven't come by yet, today is your final chance. We're here until noon.

W.E. made some progress today but there are still a lot of bags left! If you have something to drop off OR if your student has anything at Waxpool, be sure to visit during your designated time this week.

Wow! This is about 1/3rd of the bags our incredible staff has packed to give parents these next few days. Please have a sign with your child's name ready when visiting and stop by http://tiny.cc/ParentPickUp for the most up to date details of how to collect & drop off belongings.

A huge Piranha thank you goes to
Supriya Kelkar - Author for another great virtual author visit and our wonderful Librarian Ms. Meltser for helping to organize such an authentic experience for our students! Grades 3-5 had a phenomenal time collaborating with you today.

Ms. Kelkar will be presenting on being an author, lead a short writers workshop (be ready with a pencil and paper!), talk about her new book coming out next week and have time for questions.

Wow, I had a great time at our author visit (I think we maxxed out the Google Meet session)! Thank you Supriya Kelkar - Author for joining us and I am already looking forward to tuning in tomorrow for the 3-5 session!

Tomorrow for Pre-K to 2nd Grade!
Author, Ms. Kelkar, will be reading her picture book 'The Many Colors of Harpreet Singh' talking about being an author, and finishing with a time for students to ask questions.
