Willie Brown Academy Insider
November 1, 2019
Mrs. Marks is leading our young scholars in some pretty amazing art projects! There is a need to restock the some supplies. We would be very appreciative of donations of black or color fine point Sharpies and also kid-friendly magazines. Mrs. Marks does have an Art Amazon Wish List titled "Mrs. Marks' Wish-list". Thank you!
Read for the Record Thursday
Each year PTA sponsors our scholars participating in Read for the Record. Jumpstart’s Read for the Record brings together millions of adults and children around the world each year to read the same book on the same day in order to raise awareness about the critical importance of early literacy. This year, Jumpstart is celebrating their 14th anniversary of Read for the Record on November 7 with the book Thank You, Omu! All scholars at WBA will participate in Read for the Record on Thursday!
4th Grade Egg Drop Friday
4th grading is holding their annual Egg Drop showcase on Friday at 1:25. Scholars design a contraption to hold a raw egg and hopefully protect the egg from breaking when dropped from the roof. Our scholars love this event! Parents are invited to attend the showcase, however must receive a visitor's badge before joining the scholars outside. You can register for a Fast Pass for the event here.
If you foresee that you will do any volunteering on campus or attend a field trip as a chaperone, you must complete a background check. This is a requirement in MISD. A background check must be completed EVERY YEAR. A completed check will apply to all MISD schools, but it is very helpful if you choose Willie Brown Academy when you apply. If you have not completed a background check for this school year (beginning July 1), you will not be able to volunteer or attend a field trip. https://www.mansfieldisd.org/parents-students/campus-volunteers
