Spring is in the Air!

Whew! It sure has been busy at WLE with MSTEP testing-construction-year end tasks- Spring Fair and the list goes on!

First of all, a huge thank you to Bill for organizing ACES and coordinating with The Browne Agency and Spinal Column. It was a great opportunity for our student to get active and enjoy some exercise.

Thank you to all who attended the Spring Fair! It was a lovely evening of fun, food, games and prizes- oh my!

I know your plate is full as the school year is wrapping up and I'd like to update you on a few important announcements:

Class Lists: I would like 2016-17 class lists by Friday, June 10. I will touch base with grade levels about any pertinent or specific placements.

iReady: All students will complete iready Math diagnostic. After considering your input about DRA, I'm requesting that only students below grade level complete the Reading iReady and all students to complete Math.

Galileo: On August 10, there is a Galileo Conference at Fraser High School. The registration fee is $35 and includes breakfast, lunch and materials. The conference is open to ALL educators in Galileo organizations. Registration link is here: http://www.solutionwhere.com/misdtraining/cw/showcourse.asp?5244

June Construction: Please review the email titled "Preparation for June Construction" for very detailed information about packing, moving and dumpsters.

#wleced Twitter Chat: 5/10 with Michelle Fiebke-Lang & Cyndi Nickel

So I am stretching myself and taking on the challenge of technology by co-hosting a Twitter chat.

I would love your support and encourage you to check out tomorrow's Twitter chat from 8:30-9:30 P.M.

Click below for the Storify (which is basically a play-by-play of the Twitter chat) to get a feel for what it looks like.
