WMS Friday Forecast

December 14, 2017 - Volume 16

Dear RedHawk Families,

There are some great things happening at Wredling! Our RISE class has been doing a great job leading 25 Days of Kindness around our school. We have many groups serving others in times of need.

We have a group of students that could use your help! Our Service Learning Class focuses on serving other organizations in our community. Below are three activities that they are doing where they could use your help.

  1. Do you want to make an impact in someone's life? If so donate to Wredling’s food donation box in the main foyer. We will be collecting canned and boxed goods for the Northern Illinois Food Bank. Everything counts! We will be collecting donations on December 16th.
  2. Do you want to help a dog or cat in a shelter? If so, here is your chance. Our 8th-grade service learning group will be collecting any color shirt starting next week. They will be making toys and giving them to dogs and cats at the Anderson Animal Shelter. You can donate in the front hallway starting now!
  3. Service learning is donating winter items to the Salvation Army. Donate new or gently used hats, scarfs, gloves, socks, earmuffs, or anything winter related to one of the boxes in the main foyer. Donations are being collected through the 15th of December.

If you are able to support these projects during this holiday season, thank you!

Mr. Loversky, Principal

8TH GRADE GIRLS BASKETBALL INFORMATIONAL MEETING

Any 8th grade girls interested in trying out for the Wredling Basketball team need to attend a brief meeting on Tuesday, December, 19th at 8:15 am in the Cafeteria. If you are unable to attend for some reason, please see either Coach Kohler or Coach Massie to get the necessary information.

Kane County Judges Visit

This past Monday, all students had the opportunity to be part of a presentation given by Kane County Judges Clint Hull and Elizabeth Flood. The Judges were invited to Wredling to share information about digital citizenship and safety. Using real-life experiences both from current, relevant news stories and from situations they have witnessed within their courtrooms, they spoke about making responsible choices while using digital devices. Topics included cyberbullying, sexting, and electronic harassment.

If you haven't already done so, this is a great opportunity to have a family discussion about responsible digital conduct. Our children are digital natives and often do not understand the consequences of inappropriately using their devices. Here are a few questions you can ask your student:

  • What was a highlight from the Judges’ presentation?
  • What was one new thing you learned from their presentation?
  • Is there anything you will change or avoid as a result of their presentation.

This is such an important conversation for you to have in today's digital environment! Please take the time to talk to your child about what he/she learned at Monday's presentation and keep talking about it. These ongoing conversations make a real difference for our children.

Be Kind for 25 Update from the Rise Program!

The Rise students are unstoppable! Their mission of spreading kindness has continued throughout this week, and has helped to bring smiles to many here at Wredling. We can all take a lesson from their positive examples and do some of the same things they have been doing. This will help "spread kindness" throughout our community. Here's what they accomplished each day this week:

  • Monday - They wrote nice notes as a way of spreading kindness to others!
  • Tuesday - They sat by someone different to start a conversation with someone new.
  • Wednesday - They cleaned the LRC tables, which is so helpful to us during cold and flu season!
  • Thursday - They helped someone carry things and offered help as needed.
  • Friday - They helped their teachers pass out papers.

Have a great weekend and try to be intentional about spreading kindness yourself! Our campaign of Be Kind for 25 continues... If your child has a kindness story to share, please contact Stephanie Casey.

Thank you!
