Wallowa Elementary School - February, 2022

February Principal Message

January has been such a fun month at Wallowa Elementary and students are working so hard! I have never seen kids so excited about math! Teachers are piloting a new math curriculum, which really is making a difference in teaching and learning. Kids laugh when I tell them their brains are "on fire!" It is wonderful to see!

Students in fourth and fifth grades kicked off their Mock Newbery Project and are busily reading high quality children's literature! There are five titles and they are diving deep into literary elements of each text. They are so enthusiastic! They couldn't wait to get their hands on the books!

We held our Pride Assembly on January 31st and engaged in our family group lessons right afterwards. It is fun to celebrate students and their accomplishments!

Students also kicked off the Kids Heart Challenge this month as a part of PE and a focus on health, hosted a musher and her dogs at the school, and took a field trip to the Extreme Sled Dog Race start!

Wallowa truly is an incredible community. Thank you for supporting your child's education and partnering with us to ensure their continued learning and growth!
