Mrs. Hladun's Tidings

Big thanks to our families for their participation in the PTC Believe fundraiser. Initial reports suggest that we exceeded our goal, and we've been told that our online sales were exceptional! The funds raised support our teacher and grade level funds - so your contributions go directly back to your child's classroom!


Kudos to Ian in Mrs. Wetzstein's class. He was our #1 seller, selling over 40 items, and contributing over $700 to our overall earnings! Wow!


Big thanks to Kristen Farnam for coordinating this fundraiser, and to all of the folks who helped with processing orders this week.


Stay tuned for information about delivery day - we'll need help getting materials organized and we'll need all items picked up that day!

School Site Council Forming Now!

Last call - we are forming our school site council. We will meet about once each trimester to collect input on items like our site budget, our SBAC/iReady/CAST scores and our school safety plan. If you are interested, please email Mrs. Hladun at jhladun@wpusd.org by Mon., 10/1.

Hot Lunch

Each morning, our teachers take a count for hot lunch. Please help us be reinforcing the following info with your child:

students can only get in the hot lunch line if they've NOTIFIED THEIR TEACHER

that they are getting hot lunch that morning


It's important to our food service team that all children who requested hot lunch in the later grades get access to it, but sometimes we have more children getting into the hot lunch than our counts tell us to plan for. Our lunch menu is posted below and Wednesday is always pizza day (super popular!!!).

Food For Thought - Red Ribbon Week

October is traditionally a time to celebrate Red Ribbon Week which is sponsored by the National Family Partnership and is geared towards raising awareness around healthy choices and encouraging communities of drug free youth. Traditionally, RRW is celebrated the last week of October.


Talking about drugs with your elementary school student may feel uncomfortable to parents, but research shows that the more you talk about drugs with your child and the earlier you start, the less likely they are to engage in risky behavior.


Here are some tools to help you with the conversation:



This fall, we will be celebrating Red Ribbon Week with "healthy choice/anti drug" dress up days (stay tuned), a healthy choice/say no to drugs door decorating contest (thanks Mrs. Ricci & our awesome Art Docents!), and a visit from our local first responders at our annual Carnoween.
