Wiggin Street Parent Update
January 6, 2023
Dear Wiggin Street Families,
We hope you all had a wonderful time with friends and family over the holidays and wish you a Happy New Year! It has been a great week getting back into a routine with our students, and seeing the growth they have made in their mid-year assessments.
Our Math-a-thon starts on Monday, and more details can be read below. Also, we are happy that Richard Cowdrey has rescheduled his visit for January 27th.
Lastly, we hope the weather does not impact school, but you can find information in this update about how decisions are made if we need to close or delay for inclement weather.
New Year, New Goals
1. Define Small, Specific Goals (Make more specific and concrete goals.)
2. Make it Easy for Yourself (Think of ways to work around barriers.)
3. Get an Accountability Partner (Find someone working toward the same goal as you.)
4. Use External and Internal Reminders (Post-it notes, to do lists, and daily alarms)
5. Give Yourself Time (Allow yourself to make mistakes.)
Three Kings Day, Visiting Guest Speakers for Kinder Buddies about another winter holiday
Students will learn more about the prizes on Monday. The money raised from this fundraiser will help the school purchase Makerspace & STEM resources. Our school and students have benefited greatly from your generosity of past Math-A-Thons. We appreciate your support of this fundraiser.
Richard Cowdrey- Visiting Author/Illustrator
We are excited that Richard Cowdrey, bestselling author and illustrator of the Fiona the Hippo series and Gambier resident, has rescheduled his visit to Wiggin Street for January 27th.
We will have a limited number of books to purchase on the day of the author visit for those that missed the preorder sale. Cash, check, and/or card will be accepted that morning. Paragraph's will have a table set up in front of the office during morning drop off.

Inclement Weather Calamity Days
The following link will provide you with details shared by Superintendent Seder on how the decision is made for closings and delays. “School Closings and Delays - How is the Decision Made”
Also, we use ‘Instant Connect Alerts’ as our closings and delays notification system which is how you probably received this Parent Update. If not, please make sure you have signed up at Instant Connect portal.
Lastly, if school is on a 2-hour delay, we will start school at 11:00 am with drop-off beginning at 10:40. Lunch will always be pizza on delay days, and no breakfast will be served.
