Wiggin Street Parent Update
November 11, 2021
All of us at Wiggin Street want to thank all Veterans for serving our country and helping keep us safe and free. Our students had the opportunity to be a part of a longtime tradition at Wiggin Street. If you are an alumni, you may remember having flag ceremonies while you were in elementary school.
It was so nice to gather as a Wiggin Street family which has been difficult to do over the past couple of years. We are blessed to get to spend time with your children each day.
Have a great weekend!
Friends of Wiggin Street
November 11 & 12th please help support our amazing teachers and a local business by shopping at Paragraphs Bookstore downtown Mt Vernon! Our teachers have wish lists of books they would love to have for their classrooms, or you can purchase for yourself and a percentage of the sale comes back to our School! Happy Shopping!!
Easy Ways to Help our School
Friends of Wiggin Street School (FOWS) would like to inform parents of two easy ways to earn cash-back rewards for the school. Below are instructions provided by Kroger and Amazon on how to sign-up for their charitable rewards programs.
Kroger Community Rewards
Create a digital account, link your card to the organization "Friends of Wiggin Street School” and cash rewards are sent directly to this charitable organization at no added cost to you
To use AmazonSmile, simply go to smile.amazon.com on your web browser or activate AmazonSmile in the Amazon Shopping app on your iOS or Android phone within the Settings or Programs & Features menu. On your web browser, you can add a bookmark to smile.amazon.com to make it even easier to return and start your shopping with AmazonSmile.
Food for the Hungry
The student(s) in each school who donates the largest number of "cans" (based on the same calculation) will be offered the opportunity to be on the LIVE broadcast with other schools' winners on the day of the Drive (December 10th) and will receive a good bag.
Lost and Found
With winter weather approaching, we are getting a collection of sweatshirts and jackets. If you are missing items from your child's wardrobe, please remind them to check out our Lost and Found located at the top of the cafeteria steps.
Also, please label all clothing, lunchboxes, water bottles, etc. We will try to get it to the owner before making donations.
