This year's Pack-a-Thon theme will be "Challenge". We will be asking students to challenge themselves in new ways each day. A variety of social, physical and academic challenges will be given throughout the week. We will also be challenging the Wilson families and our community to raise $65,000 for this year's Pack-a-Thon. Each student is challenged to raise $60 in donations. Our efforts will culminate with an ultimate physical challenge as students participate in a YES! Fitness day that will require both physical prowess and fierce determination!
As in previous years, we will have theme days throughout Pack-a-Thon Challenge where the students are encouraged to dress up.
Monday 10/24 - Native Country Colors
Tuesday 10/25 - Wilson Spirit Gear
Wednesday 10/26 - Favorite Athlete
Thursday 10/27 - Exercise Gear
Please encourage your child to dress up as a book character for the Book Character Parade. Students need to bring a book of whom they dressed as. We will parade around the school in the morning.
5th Grade Kindergarten Picture
Each students will get to place a kindergarten picture next to their 5th grade pictures in the yearbook. Please send your child's kindergarten pictures taken on picture day. If you absolutely cannot find their "official" kindergarten picture, please send in a 5 year old picture. Please send the labeled pictures in a ziploc bag or envelope labeled with your child's name and homeroom teacher's name. All photos will be returned. All pictures are due by Tuesday, October 25th.
If you have any questions, please contact Sara Zoco Aparicio at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Since this is an election year, Katy ISD will be having students in grades 3-12 participate in Project Vote. This will be a mock election. Our 5th graders will be able to complete their voter registration at school and participate in early voting. We will be talking about this and the election process as the election gets closer.
October Core Essential: Courage
Courage-Being brave enough to do what you should do even when you're afraid. The animal that represents courage is the mongoose. The color of the month is silver.
