Celebrating Summer Reading!


This week we celebrated summer reading with our Wet 'N' Wild Water Day! Students also watched the Summer Reading 2021 slide show that is attached below. We appreciated everyone's participation.

Mount Vernon City's Fire Department showed up near the end of water day to have some fun with the kids. I'm not sure who had more fun as you can see in the above picture!

We are blessed to have a fabulous PTO in "Friends of Wiggin Street"! They provided a snow cone machine as well as organized volunteers to help with the event. Parents helped carry buckets of water, passed out snow cones, and assisted with students in stations. The next FOW meeting is next Tuesday, September 7th, at 5:00 in the Wiggin Street Library. All parents and guardians of Wiggin Street are welcome. We hope to see you there!

Best wishes,

Christy Grandstaff
