Wyatt Wire NOVEMBER 19

We're Gearing Up for a GREAT Year!

A HAPPY HOLIDAY TO ALL!

We hope that all of our families have a safe and enjoyable Thanksgiving break! We have so much to be thankful for! Today our building was bustling with volunteers in 1st grade for Pioneer Days and also in 5th grade for Colonial Days. The teachers strive to make learning memorable and they simply cannot provide all the hands-on experiences without the help of volunteers!


We had four Watch D.O.G.S this week! It's wonderful to have Dads in our building and experiencing the day with their children. Our Watch D.O.G.S program is really growing, so we encourage you to sign up in the future if you haven't done so.


In the past two months, we have had many other volunteer parents donate their time in our library, supporting teachers by laminating and cutting, and behind the scenes for our first campus event last weekend, Donuts with Dads! Thanks to all for the gift of your time!

A MONTH OF GIVING!

Our theme for the next three weeks will be about GIVING. We will be promoting a Food Collection Drive, a Toy Drive, and an opportunity for Students to buy a gift for someone else in our Elf House, which will be operated by the PTA. (volunteers are needed!)


The Food Collection Drive begins the day we return, November 29. Since so many of us will be shopping for our own families this week, it's a great time to pick up a few extra items that could help another family. These are items that are needed:


  • peanut butter
  • CANned/poached meats such as chicken and tuna
  • snack bars
  • CANned fruits and vegetables
  • boxed pasta
  • boxed or bagged rice or beans



Our donations will be shared with: Minnie's Food Pantry, The North Texas Food Bank, Lovepacs, and Willow Creek Food Pantry

Calling All Musicians!

Here is your chance, Wallaroos! Wyatt is looking for student musicians to perform in the front hallway during this holiday season from 7:30-7:40 am. In the past, our performers had a great time showing their talents and the students love to hear their classmates perform! If you have a holiday song or songs to share we want to hear from you! Hurry we only have 15 spots so sign up quick!

*You will be performing for 10 minutes (piano and music stand provided, if you play any other instrument you must bring it). When performing you can play the same song multiple times if you would like.

CALLING ALL WALLAROO SCIENTISTS!

Hello, Wyatt Scientists! It’s time for the Science and Engineering Fair! We hope all of our young scientists enjoyed the parachute drop experiment last week on Friday and are ready to create their own experiments and engineering marvels. The projects will be due Wednesday, January 12th, and the Wyatt Science and Engineering Fair will be Friday, January 14th. Remember, Wyatt scientists, choose something fun related to science or engineering that presents you with an idea for a testable question. Good luck with your projects, and we’re all looking forward to seeing all of your hard work! Also, parents, if you are interested in volunteering as a science fair judge and have a background in either science or engineering, we can certainly use your expertise! Please contact Mr. Yerger at jim.yerger@pisd.edu. Thank you for your support!

CODING NIGHT WITH SARA BONSER OUR SUPERINTENDANT

Our Superintendant, Sara Bonser, will kick off this special virtual event on December 8 at 5:00.

This is a great time for the family to learn to code together! Parents, you will be amazed to see what your children already know! Mark your calendar and learn how to code with other families across our district!
