Better Together

Dear Wiggin Street Families,

What a fun week we had! The Math-a-thon rewards continued with skateboarding, bowling, glow party, and the Money Machine! The Teacher Breakfast reward will be next Wednesday. More information is below regarding the top fundraisers.

Next Monday, we will have a Student Leadership Meeting in the library at 8:40 am. I look forward to hearing more of their ideas for leadership opportunities at Wiggin Street.

Lastly, our Kindergarten through 2nd grade will present their Spring Musicals on Monday, March 6th, so mark your calendars!

We hope you have a great weekend!

Best wishes,

Christy Grandstaff

5th grade Native American Museum

The whole fifth grade opened a museum of wonders where students could learn about the first peoples of North America. There were several models which showcase each regions’ unique and diverse features. Did you know the Pacific Northwest Natives put totem poles outside their houses to tell their family histories?

Guest Visitors in Kindergarten for Ioana's Birthday

Ioana's parents visited Kindergarten today to share their birthday traditions. Students learned to sing Happy Birthday in Spanish and learned about piñatas. They even looked for a letter that looks different in Spanish. The squiggle over the letter N in Spanish is called a tilde!

Grades 3-5 Ohio State Testing Dates

Please keep these dates in mind when scheduling appointments for April. Make-up testing takes some of our educators away from intervention instruction, so we like to limit it as much as possible.

3rd-5th Grade ELA: April 12-13

3rd-5th Grade Math: April 18-19

5th Grade Science: April 25-26

This site for students and families has lots of great information about the state test and 3rd grade Reading Guarantee. It also has a practice test that can be found in the image at the top of the page.
