2nd Quarter is Near

Hello Webster-hard to believe the first quarter is almost complete. Please read on to make sure you are in the loop on a busy second quarter. We'll try to keep it all concise so you make it through this edition.

Morning Drop Off

Now that the weather is getting colder and snow is in the near future I want to again remind our families of our morning drop off procedures. Even though it may be cold or there is snow on the ground, please continue to pull past the curve, go past the dumpsters, and pull up as much as possible until the sidewalk ends. Pulling up that far doubles the amount of cars that can drop off/pick up at one time which has a significant impact on speeding up the procedures. The entire sidewalk along the drop off path will be shoveled and salted. If you are late due to weather conditions you can still drop off your child in the back until 7:40am which is when the doors lock. After 7:40am you will need to drop off in the front of the building and check in at the main office.

Turkey Trot Food Drive

This year, we will be running (or trotting!) our first ever Turkey Trot! The Wolverine’s goal is “To trot to help alleviate hunger in our community.” Our school goal will be 1,000 items to be donated to Family Sharing of Ozaukee County. This will be an in-school activity during your child’s day on Tuesday, November 21st where we place our donated items in a truck, trot two laps on Webster's parking lot track, and finish with a hot chocolate.

Collection dates will begin November 13th and run through the 21st. Student's can place their donated items on the stage in the Commons in their designated grade level area.

More detailed information will follow on this event.

Thank you for supporting our efforts to help alleviate hunger in our community!

Musical

Webster Middle School’s performance of Cinderella will be on November 17th at 7:00pm and November 18th at 2:00pm at the Cedarburg PAC.

“Impossible things are happening everyday!,” sings the Godmother in Rogers and Hammerstein’s musical fairytale CINDERELLA, and impossible things will happen when young performers bring this timeless tale to life.

With the script and score lovingly adapted for middle school performers, this classic seems as fresh today. After all, even if we know the story by heart, we still hold our breath until we are sure the slipper fits.

Getting to Know...Rogers & Hammerstein’s CINDERELLA is the perfect show to introduce young people up through the 9th grade to the magic of live theater.

Fuel Up To Play 60 SWAT Team


Webster's Fuel up to Play 60 group is promoting healthy eating and physical activity this year once again. Webster will be receiving a $1,000 grant from the Wisconsin Dairy Council to use for various events and incentives this year. So far this year we have held a Wellness Wednesday after school dodgeball event, walked in the homecoming parade, made smoothies, and are planning a taste test event for November 9th during all lunches. If your son or daughter wants to join our group at any time during the year see Ms. Mann. Any students are always welcome to join!

Here's a video highlighting what we have done so far this year. Enjoy!
