WBS AIG News
Please consisder signing up for an AIG Academy this year. I have the schedule on my webpage. The attachment is a google doc so if you have difficulty opening the file please let me know.
This year the AIG program will be offering a new class on Journalism. The class is open to all students in grades 3-5 at WBS. During the Journalism class, students will learn various writing skills needed to create a school newsletter. Students will be given the opportunity to interview, write interest articles, take photos, and more. This class will only meet on Fridays to begin with. We may add another meeting time if needed. There will be more detailed information coming home soon.
As always ~ if you have any questions or concerns, please ask.
I am looking forward to working with all children at WBS!
