This Week at Wheeler

Sometimes we just need our own place to nap. Wheeler's Nursery students take a rest in their individual napping tents at the Farm.

Wheeler's Expanded Health Center

Wheeler has expanded its Health Services with locations at both the Providence and Seekonk Farm campuses for SY 20-21. Nurses are staffed at both locations with additional health services available. The expanded Providence Health Center includes isolation areas and separate spaces for those who may be ill and for those who may need a scrape bandaged.

This Week

This Week at Wheeler: Upper School students Ella Kulper, Tamar Weil and Declan Allio were quoted in the Providence Journal as they joined adults and students together in Burnside Park to support the Black Lives Matter movement. We celebrate the accomplishments of 7 Wheeler students selected as Semifinalists in the National Merit Scholarship program. Our Lower School students examine why a bearded dragon would shed its skin, while Nursery enjoys a quiet moment out at the Farm. The Upper School Social Committee welcomed our next wave of in-person learners, and we appreciate the voices of our Upper School Aerie writers and their contributions to a new literary journal.
