Wiggin Street Parent Update

Better Together


Wow! What a week! It's been a blast seeing all the creative outfits for our Spirit Week. Thanks so much for helping to make it a great week for the kids.

MVHS Seniors joined us this morning for a Spirit Week Pep Rally. Their Homecoming game is tonight vs. Wooster. Best of luck to them! It was great to have the senior band members, cheerleaders, Homecoming Court, and fall athletes represented. The kids have been cheering all day, so I'm sure you will hear all about it tonight. I have included a video of the highlights.

Have a wonderful weekend and GO JACKETS!

Best wishes,

Christy Grandstaff

A Visit to Mr. Clippinger's Apiary

Kyle Lockett expressed an interest in watching bees in Mrs. Clippinger's class. Luckily, this is a passion of Mr. Clippinger, so Kyle visited their home to learn more about bees. Then, he presented the information learned to his class.

Thrive Kids


We want our students at Thrive Kids to LEAD each and every day! This week we discussed D-emanding excellence of ourselves no matter what we do. When we demand excellence from ourselves then we have the power to inspire others to do the same!

The students completed 2 different Tabata's doing a variety of movements including running and hanging from a pull-up bar!

We have two more weeks of Thrive Kids for our Fall session and we are excited about all the hard work we have seen the students completing!

L- look around to help, protect, and inspire

E- expect the best from those around you

A- attitude matters!

D- demand excellence from yourself!
