Note from Mrs. Soberalski - Guidance Counselor

R.E.D. (Really Excellent Decisions) Ribbon Week
October 21 – October 25

This year we are challenging all our Wayne Center Tigers to go deeper into Red Ribbon Week and Bullying Prevention Month by taking responsibility, spreading kindness and choosing to make “REALLY EXCELLENT DECISIONS (R.E.D) all week long. We invite students to dress up, wear their red ribbon bracelet (provided at school Monday morning), and complete the suggested school and home activities for the chance to win a prize. Look for a list of activities to come home this week.

Note from Nurse Jenny...

Reminder that the flu season is upon us. If your child is sick, please keep them home. We don’t

want them to expose the other students Remember ENSC policy is to send any student home who has a temperature of 100 degrees or more; or if they have vomiting or diarrhea. Students must be fever free without fever-reducing medication and/or no vomiting or diarrhea for 24 hours before returning to school.

Wayne Center Parent Advisory Committee

PAC is a group of Wayne Center parents who work throughout the year to provide for the students and staff of our school. We would love to do more for our students and staff. New ideas and extra hands are needed to make our school the best it can be for our children and the staff!

Our next meeting is on November 6th at 6:30 pm.

We would love to see you there! For more information or questions please call the school!

Home & School Connection Pointer

Boosting vocabulary is so important!

A large vocabulary can turn your child into a better reader and writer. Try these everyday ways to help him/her learn new words.

Keep your ears open

When you and your children go places, point out words that people use. Maybe a waiter describes an entree or the dentist talks about molars. Encourage your child to figure out what words mean by the way they are used.

Go beyond nouns

Help your child add adjectives and verbs to his/her vocabulary. Sports and games offer opportunities to use action words. Let your child hear you comment on the softball that soars of the runner who sprints. When she sends thank you notes or greeting cards, suggest descriptive words ( a polka- dotted shirt or a fantasic birthday).
