Nov 29- Get Whitt it!

For the strength of the pack is the wolf & the strength of the wolf is the pack...

Wolf Howl- Vertical Math team time!

Math PLC leaders and one teacher each from K-1 will have an opportunity to meet on Dec 7, during the Wolf Howl. You'll meet in the conference room at 7:15, so please ask a teammate to help get your Wolves greeted and down to the wolf howl. We heard really great things from the ELA side!


You'll meet until 8:15 and then take your classes back from the Howl.

PTA points!

  • The coupon thing starts tomorrow...hand out ONE coupon per day to a Wylie Way showing kid, and they bring it down to the office to go in a drawing! (So the genius behind this is that our students who are "gifted" a gift certificate b/c of economic needs won't be embarrassed to SHOP with their certificate b/c the ones who WIN on the drawings will also get the same certificates...so smart right??)
  • Winter Wonderland Fun Night will be SO fun! You're all invited to come, but also totally don't have too!
  • As a BONUS, I'll be drawing a name each morning for all of YOUR names for some pretty amazing baskets that Kathy Fisk has put together...they are themed and you're going to LOVE them! How do you enter? You already are...just for being so awesome! :)

Jan 7- PD thinking, planning ahead....

On Jan 7th we'll have some vertical team planning time.


Each team will meet as a team in the library. Primary, you'll attend both 45-minute sessions, so that everyone has an opportunity to participate. We'll give you a more complete agenda closer to the date.


During the February Wolf Howl the ELA side will meet.

Can I just say, WOW!! I LOVE walking through your classrooms. You guys are doing amazing at BAS testing! The kids are working so hard! Thank you for every single thing you do. None of your hard work goes without notice. This time of year gets tiring and kids get just a liiiiiitle off task, but you would never know it when you walk around this building!! We are so thankful for you all!!
