Better Together

Dear Wiggin Street Families,

Mrs. Phillips had extra help in the office today with Donald Morr acting as Secretary for the Day. Also, Clayton Toney and Harry Decosky-Nippert were teachers for the day. These were rewards from being Math-a-thon Top Fundraisers. We appreciated their leadership, and they did an amazing job!

We are enjoying getting back to a more normal school year and have scheduled end of the year events that have been missed over the past 2 years. Please look over the upcoming events and mark your calendars for exciting activities including Battle of the Books, Spring Musicals, Fun Festival, 5th Grade vs. Teachers Hockey Game, 5th Grade Camp, Field Day, and Talent Show, and more! There will be more information as we get closer to each, but I wanted to at least get you the dates.

Best wishes,

Christy Grandstaff

Secretary for the Day, Donald Morr

Teachers for the Day

Homework Club

Homework Club will continue on Tuesdays and Thursdays during Kenyon's Spring Break (March 7-18) Wednesdays are now cancelled until further notice.

Native American Cultures in North America

5th Grade has been studying Native American Cultures in North America. This week their models have been displayed in the main hallway, and they show how the environment, landforms, and climate affect how cultures develop.

Friends of Wiggin Street

Save the date! Friday, April 22nd the Spring Fun Festival is BACK!!!

More details to come.

We are looking for at least one more large auction item for the Fun Festival Raffle. The two items we already have are from The Mount Vernon Grand Hotel and the Mount Vernon Fire Department's "Ride to School in a Fire Truck". If you have a connection to a local business that would be interested in making a donation, please let us know. Thanks so much!

Next FOW meeting is Thursday, April 7th @ 5:00 pm. This is a change from the originally scheduled April meeting due to the K-2 Spring Mini-Musical being performed April 5th.

Thrive Kids Weekly Update

How do you become a leader? Small steps each and every day! This week we talked about leadership being unique to each individual and how we can use our individual talents to be a leader! The students worked hard on a Tabata and then a team game!

We are getting ready to head into our final 8-week unit for the school year! We will focus on the PUSH movement (push ups, handstands, push press, etc) and guide students to increase their GRIT both in the gym and outside of it!
