News and Notes from Oliver W. Winch MS - June 2015
The End of the School Year
What's happening at OWWMS?
Here's a photo of the 7th & 8th grade Gold Team on a field trip to the Betar Byway and Cooper's Cave Park with their teacher, Mrs. Ross-Hills, on June 5th. The weather was a little wet but it did not dampen spirits. Several of the students were overheard by Mrs. Ross-Hills saying that this was the "best field trip ever!"
Here are some dedicated members of the 6th grade Green Team's "Green Thumb Gardening Club" sprucing things up and getting the soil ready for a garden in our library courtyard. From their teacher, Mrs. Wysocki: "Today we removed rocks and weeds from the garden and worked on the courtyard flower gardens as well. Next week we will be prepping the soil for planting!"
A couple of weeks ago some of our 6th grade students participated in activities that simulated what it might be like to navigate the world as someone who is visually impaired. There were a number of activities that went on in the front of our building, and any of the students stated that they didn't realize how much they take for granted when it comes to being able to see the world around us.
