Wiggin Street Parent Update

Smile for the Picture

Better Together

Dear Wiggin Street Families,

It has been a fun week starting with 2's Day on Tuesday! Please don't judge me in my tutu, but there's not much we won't do for your kids:) We started the morning like an old radio station rewarding the 22nd caller. Second grade had activities throughout the day related to 2's, and we ended the day with a dance party over the intercom.

The top fundraisers for the Math-a-thon were announced yesterday and celebrated with Olympic medals, and today we had Spring pictures.

All of this happens while we continue to focus on academics and closing the gaps due to a pandemic. So much growth has happened this year, and we're not finished YET!

Best wishes,

Christy Grandstaff

Thrive Kids Weekly Update

This week at Thrive Kids: We ran. We jumped. We lunged. Plus, we talked about being leaders. Sometimes it’s not always obvious the steps to take to become a leader but we are working on helping each child see that they can be a leader both in the school and at home! This week we talked about solving problems by seeing SOLUTIONS instead of problems. We get to decide what we see and this week we encouraged the students to recognize that “Leaders Solve Problems”!

Weekly Workout

10 lunges

10 jumping jacks

10 sit ups (or roll ups)
