Wiggin Street Parent Update
October 21, 2022
This 4 day week has been fun-filled with First Grade going on a field trip to the Pumpkin Patch, 3rd and 5th Grade going to a YES Concert, and our first PBIS quarter reward event! Students were joined by Kenyon athletes and coaches for an extra recess reward. The event cost 25 PBIS points, and it was a hit! Check out details in this update regarding the next quarter's PBIS reward event.
Did you know that our district's website has a Community Bulletin Board for Available Flyers for all Elementary Schools? You can check it out here!
Unfortunately, we had to move the playground painting date to October 30th at 1:00 and are keeping our fingers crossed for dry weather. We will be painting 4-square and other activities on the playground. More volunteers are needed, so please let me know if you are available to help by emailing me at email@example.com.
Details are also included in this update about our Spirit Wear Sale that goes through Monday, Pumpkins on Parade Tuesday night, and the Scholastic Book Fair. We look forward to seeing you all at conferences!
Monday is the Last Day of the Sale!
Wiggin Street Spirit Wear Sale

This is not a fundraiser, but an opportunity to show your school spirit!https://wiggin-street-elementary.square.site/

Scholastic Book Fair
Pumpkins on Parade
Fall Harvest Parade and Parties
Costumes should come to school in a bag and children should be able to get in and out of their costumes easily. (If you feel your child needs help with his/her costume, please contact the classroom teacher.) Please make sure that there are no scary costumes because of our younger students. There should be no Halloween masks. No pretend weapons of any kind are permitted at school even as a part of the costume. Please save those for trick-or-treat night.
We ask parents not to pass out treats along the route, however some of the local businesses may pass out candy to kids. Any treats brought to school for the class parties must be individually wrapped.

PBIS Extra Recess Reward- What's next quarter's event?
Our PBIS reward event for this first quarter was a great success. The students received an extra recess on Thursday afternoon with the Kenyon athletes for earning at least 25 PBIS Rewards' points. The Kenyon athletes jumped right in to cheer the students on and play all the games the playground has to offer. The students even got some extra equipment to use. The huge parachute was a hit. The smiles on the students' faces says it all!
For our next PBIS reward, students will be earning points to redeem for a Popcorn and a Movie event. Students will be working on earning 50 points for this next quarter to be able to attend. We are so proud of our students for showing respect for themselves, others, and the space!
Richard Cowdrey- Visiting Author/Illustrator
The Fiona book series is based on the beloved hippo born at the Cincinnati Zoo. Cowdrey's children's books "Bad Dog, Marley" and "A Very Marley Christmas" also made him a New York Times No. 1 Bestselling illustrator.
He will visit Wiggin Street on December 8th, and the pre-order books are planned to arrive in time for the visit. This is a great opportunity to have a book for a signed copy. These orders are due by November 1st.
