Wiggin Street Parent Update
August 25, 2023
Our first full week ended with our PBIS Kickoff and all of our Kindergarten students in the building together. Students enjoyed being greeted by Kenyon athletes, and a building scavenger hunt that helped them learn the expectations for positive behavior in all areas. The last clue took them to the upside down tree for a class picture. Then, we had an all school assembly to put their prize, puzzle pieces, together to create a "Better Together" image. I've shared a video below that was shown to students in the assembly. By the way, our new sound system is amazing! This was a great way for us all to kickoff a wonderful school year together!
On September 25th, we will take an ALL School picture on the hillside near the red slide. Students will be asked to wear red and/or Wiggin Street spirit wear. Check out the information below to order spirit wear for the whole family!
There are lots of other great events planned for our school. Please read this week's update, so you don't miss out. The Upcoming Events will be very helpful in your planning.
We are so glad that you and your child are part of our Wiggin Street family. We are "Better Together"! Have a great weekend!

Wiggin Street Spirit Sale
Our Wiggin Street Elementary Spirit Store is open thanks to Rod Zolman and Sharx Apparel and Design. The Spirit Wear sale will be open through Sept. 1st and includes the new "Rooted in Respect", traditional W, and retro "Wiggin Street Kids" (Parent, Teacher, and Alumni) shirts and other apparel! This is not a fundraiser, but an opportunity to show your school spirit!https://wiggin-street-elementary.square.site/?source=qr-code
Everything is taken care of online and orders are shipped to the school. To aid in distribution please leave your child's Name and Teacher in the "Note for seller" at checkout. Thank You!) If you don't have a student for pick up you can add USPS shipping. Items will be shipped at the same time as bulk school delivery at completion of sale.
If your student has rescue medication that needs to be kept at school (inhalers, EpiPens, etc.), please make sure to bring them into the school with the required paperwork filled out by the doctor as soon as possible. If anyone needs a form, feel free to reach out, so we can assure that your child has what they need to help keep them healthy and safe.
You can send a note with your child to the office in the morning if there is a change in their pick up routine. Sometimes changes are necessary during the school day for pick up. If you have a change in the way your child needs to go home, it is preferred that you send an email to your child's teacher and Anne, our secretary, at firstname.lastname@example.org. Phone calls must be made to the office before 2:00 pm if needed, so the change can be communicated.
