The Weekly Jr. Oiler

September 29, 2017

Back to School Night

It was so much fun seeing all our Jr. Oiler parents and guardians traveling through a school day just like the students! We had a wonderful turn-out in all grade levels. It was especially fun to help guide parents through the halls, just like 6th graders on the first day of school.

Parents enjoyed coming to the cafeteria during lunch periods to sample what our cafeteria has to offer. It looked a bit like Costco on a Saturday! :) Check out a few snapshots from the evening.

Library Design Contest

If you have not been to the Dwyer library and media center, I invite you to check it out! We have mobile furniture, Chromebooks, casual seating areas, and team hubs for students to collaborate around a flat-screen. Oh, there are plenty of books too. Lots of learning happens here!

Mr. Lomeli, our Library Media Tech, is starting a monthly contest for students. Students can submit a re-design of the furniture layout for the month. Submissions are due the 1st of every month, a winner will be chosen, and that student's set-up will be arranged for the entire month.

What a great way to get students excited about their learning spaces and see the change that they create!
