Wiggin Street Parent Update
October 14, 2022
The fall leaves create a beautiful backdrop at Wiggin Street. There are lots of happenings this month so make sure to check them all out in this update! We are also looking forward to seeing all of you at Parent/Teacher Conferences. If you have not scheduled a conference yet, please reach out to your child's teacher. It's so important that we have these conversations and work as a team for your children.
We will be painting 4-square and other activities on the playground Sunday, October 23rd at 1:00 pm. More volunteers are needed, so please let me know if you are available to help. The rain date will be October 30th.
Lastly, your child should have brought home a pre-order form for Richard Cowdrey's children's books. Learn more below about his upcoming visit.
Have a wonderful and safe weekend!
The next Friends of Wiggin Street meeting is Tuesday, November 1st at 5:00 pm in the library. All are welcome!
Wiggin Street Spirit Wear Sale
Our Wiggin Street Elementary Spirit Store is open thanks to Rod Zolman and Sharx Apparel and Design. The Spirit Wear sale will be open October 10-24th and includes the new "Rooted in Respect", traditional W, and retro "Wiggin Street Kids" (Parent, Teacher, and Alumni) shirts and other apparel! This is not a fundraiser, but an opportunity to show your school spirit!https://wiggin-street-elementary.square.site/
Scholastic Book Fair
Pumpkins on Parade
Fall Harvest Parade and Parties
Costumes should come to school in a bag and children should be able to get in and out of their costumes easily. (If you feel your child needs help with his/her costume, please contact the classroom teacher.) Please make sure that there are no scary costumes because of our younger students. There should be no Halloween masks. No pretend weapons of any kind are permitted at school even as a part of the costume. Please save those for trick-or-treat night.
We ask parents not to pass out treats along the route, however some of the local businesses may pass out candy to kids. Any treats brought to school for the class parties must be individually wrapped.
“I am a LEADER!”
Thank you to all the students who came out for our Fall session of Thrive Kids! The students did an excellent job of showing up each week ready to move their bodies and strengthen their mind! Throughout the 6 week program we focused on the different attributes of a leader and how we can be a leader no matter the circumstance!
The students completed a re-test of the 1 minute run so make sure to ask your child how they improved throughout the weeks!
Thank you for your support and we will see you in the Spring!
Keep moving, have fun, and DO HARD THINGS!
Richard Cowdrey- Visiting Author/Illustrator
The Fiona book series is based on the beloved hippo born at the Cincinnati Zoo. Cowdrey's children's books "Bad Dog, Marley" and "A Very Marley Christmas" also made him a New York Times No. 1 Bestselling illustrator.
He will visit Wiggin Street on December 8th, and the pre-order books are planned to arrive in time for the visit. This is a great opportunity to have a book for a signed copy. These orders are due by November 1st.
