We have heard you loud and clear. You want to talk about what is going on across the nation and in our very own town. Join us Wednesday, February 28th at 7pm in the Wakelin Room at the Wellesley Free Library for a positive community discussion around school safety.
* How can our town collaborate to keep our children, teachers and the community safe?
*What can we as parents and community members do to remove the barriers?
*How can we start a discussion with our children?
Kindergarten registration will begin on January 31, 2018 for school year 2018-19. Please note that the parent(s) of any Kindergarten eligible student should register with the Wellesley Public Schools even if they are interested in deferring their child’s attendance for one school year. These written requests will allow us to plan more effectively for space and staffing needs for the incoming and future cohorts of Kindergarten students. Additionally, this information will help us create more transparency and consistency around the admissions process moving forward.
Written deferment requests should be sent to:
Lori Cimeno, Director of Student Services
40 Kingsbury Street
Wellesley, MA 02481
Questions regarding Kindergarten registration should be directed to District Registrar Nancy Costigliola at 781-446-6210 ;5600 or [email protected]

This from the Wellesley Public Schools:
Recently the Wellesley Public Schools district has partnered with the consulting group The Kingston Bay Group to work with us around assessing the current climate of our schools. We have a strong desire to make sure we are doing proactive work around making our schools safe and welcoming for all kids. We believe partnering with the Kingston Bay Group is another effort to breathe life into our core values. Your participation in this survey will provide data that will help us reach that goal:

In addition, students will also be asked to fill out a survey on Tuesday, November 14th during an extended advisory so that we can hear their voices as well. Their participation is voluntary, but we would appreciate as many of their responses as possible.
Finally, you should know we have asked all our staff to fill out a survey designed for them. The Group is also conducting interviews and focus groups in an effort to develop a more complete set of qualitative data.
SPONSORED POST: The Wellesley Square Merchants’ Association is getting ready for the always popular Mom’s Day Out, and this year it will be even better because the event has expanded to two days. On Friday, September 15 and Saturday, September 16, 10am – 6:30pm, scores of stores throughout Wellesley Square will participate by offering discounts, special offers, and surprises. Why are they doing all of this? Because Moms rock, that’s why.
SHOPPING: Dozens of stores are participating. Just to name a few…London Harness; Page Waterman Fine Framing, which is celebrating its 100 year anniversary; Wellesley Holiday Boutique; Wellesley Toy Shop; and Anderson’s Jewelers. When you see the Mom’s Day Out sign in the shop window, you’ll know you’ve found a go-to spot for special offers and deep discounts on everything from toys, clothing, and books to home decor, handbags, and more. And here’s a little secret: all this good stuff is available to not just moms, but to everyone else. Moms are inclusive sorts who wouldn’t dream of keeping the fun all to themselves.
PARKING: All this and free parking too starting at 10am, thanks to the Town of Wellesley.
