Busy, Busy, Busy!

Please bring your WIN form that you have been working on to share with the group. Remember this is the form that was shared at our last data discussion. We asked that you try it with at least one student. Many people said that they wanted to try it with more students.


Since we have substitutes, no assistant coverage is needed and Leaders Achieve will continue as normal.

CELEBRATE STEM DAY at County Office - Saturday, April 23rd

The county has sent many email reminders about this event. They really would like all schools to participate. I am working with Jennifer Shelley at the Primary School to set up a table. We are going to be doing a Picture Perfect lesson from Kindergarten about bubbles. I have no idea what it is yet, but I do know that our school is providing bottles of bubbles that we will give away afterwards.


I am unable to stay the entire time. We are hopeful that we can set up some shifts so people can volunteer about an hour or so. The hours are 9-3. If you are willing to help man the WvES/WPS table, please let me know. Anyone who volunteers will earn 5 Free Blue Jean Passes. I know that Saturdays are hard to give so thank you in advance to anyone who is willing to help!
