Wildwood Weekly

December 11, 2022

Unity Within Community

We had a wonderful time practicing ways to respect ourselves and others during Inclusive Schools Week. We played games, read stories, watched videos, and participated in activities that helped us learn how to value our unique differences and see how they can be leveraged to create a more welcoming and inclusive community.

Many thanks to the 5th grade student volunteers who launched our morning greeter program this week which will continue throughout the school year. It's amazing how a warm greeting and a smile can brighten our mornings and make for a great start to the day.

Join me in thanking the PTA, ISW coordinator Christina Arzouman, our P.E. staff, our campus supervisors, our teachers, our parent volunteers, and the students for their efforts in making Inclusive Schools Week such a great success.

Free Online Tutoring to all California Residents - Available 24/7

Governor Gavin Newsom announced that every Californian can now access free online tutoring available 24/7 through a new initiative offering homework help in every K-12 subject and skill-building resources for adult learners. Real-time homework assistance can now be accessed 24/7 here and on the websites of any of the 1,130 local public libraries around the state. CLICK HERE to read the official announcement from CA.Gov.

Library Volunteers Needed

If you have a knack for organization, the library could use a few volunteers each week to shelve books. An few volunteers serving an hour or two each week would make a huge difference. Please contact our school librarian, Lynda Gutierrez Lee at LGutierrezlee@conejousd if interested.
