Guibrary is a hit with WE students
An entire grade level of students gathered in the library for a holiday read aloud, hands-on art project, and a movie that tied into the theme for that grade level. For instance, this year 6th graders learned about the legend of the poinsettia while 4th graders learned about Hanukkah and the dreidel.
When asked what he liked best about Guibrary, 1st grader Eli said, "I liked doing this with my friends, and the movie was my favorite part!" Mrs. Hinthorn, 3rd grade teacher, stated, "Guibrary allows for students across the grade level to do activities together, and it also allows for teachers to collaborate with one another as well."

Student Council Corner
Student Council members sold Holiday Grams to students the last week of school in December. This includes a Christmas tree cutout with a candy cane attached to it. The proceeds from the Boo Grams sold in October and the Holiday Grams in December go toward charitable donations. This year the Student Council members decided to donate the proceeds to The Villages, Inc. The Villages is a group home for youth who cannot live at home for various reasons. These donations were presented by the Student Council at the holiday assembly held on Dec. 20. Student Council sponsors are Ms. Costello, Mrs. Fairchild, and Mrs. Reinert.
Keegan, Kailey, Marianne, and Rylee work on Holiday Grams to be delivered to the students.
A representative from The Villages accepts the donation from Wanamaker Elementary students and expresses gratitude for receiving it.
Ms. Costello, Mrs. Fairchild and Mrs. Reinert have fun while shopping for The Villages donation!
