We will host our public meeting tomorrow, September 6th at 9 a.m. in the cafeteria. If you want to know more about our school data, curriculum, and funding this is the meeting for you. I am very proud of the growth that we saw with achievement this past year. We will take a look at the data and tell you about our new goals.

HERO winners

We have continued with the superhero theme this year. We are encouraging students to make good choices and to be a HERO Leader! If students earn a hero card for being Helpful, Engaged, Respectful, and On Task they are entered into a weekly drawing. We pull out one card from each grade level on Friday mornings to be our Friday Hero Leader. Those students get a prize and get to wear their hero cape to class. The students have really enjoyed this!!

We hope that you ask your student about earning cards and really take the time to praise them when they do. It's a big deal!! The cards are sent home on Friday after the drawing. This is a way for us to tell you about the great things your child is doing at school.

School T-shirts

We are sending home order forms for parents for school shirts. Hopefully we already have your child's size from your back to school packet. Many of you request to purchase a shirt to match your child's if you plan on going to a field trip or if you just want to show your WS pride. Check folders for the order form.

Dinner With Your Teacher

Reminder: Dinner with the teacher is tonight for students in 2nd-4th grade and this Thursday for K-1 students. Parents will be provided with dinner.

Please RSVP if you plan on attending so we have an accurate count.
