Tiger 2nd Grade Economics Fair Raises $1,204.90 for the Shriners Hospitals for Children

Big picture

Well done, Tiger 2nd Graders!

The Tiger 2nd Grade not only learned about economics, they set up their own businesses and opened up shop during our 2nd Grade Economics Fair in hopes of being able to donate the proceeds to a worthy cause of their choosing, the Shriners Hospitals for Children.


They put their learning of economics into practice and raised an impressive $1,204.90 to donate to the Shriners Hospitals for Children. This is learning that makes cents! Great job, Tigers!


Proudly pictured above with a wagon full o' coins are, left to right, 2nd Grade Educators Cindy Figueiredo, Tiffany Cummings, and Linda Holt. Next to Mrs. Holt are representatives from the Shriners, Linda Betncourt, Deloris Shaw, and Jean May. And, next to Ms. May are 2nd Grade Educators Heather Wachsmann and Jessica Starzyk.

Congratulations to all of our WCHE 2021-22 Field Day Participants! Well Done, All!

Thank you PTO & WCHE Garden Committee!

Thank you!

Be on the Lookout for LTISD Bus Transportation Updates

One might think that our school bus drivers would be immune to anything and everything that could be thrown their way, BUT, from time to time, LTISD bus drivers do need to take a sick day, and at this time the District is not always able to provide a substitute bus driver quickly enough to cover the route.


As a result, there are times when SMARTTag and/or LTISD will notify parents that bus service could be delayed or that bus service for a particular route is canceled. Even though the disruption to service happens very infrequently, it's still an inconvenience when it happens to you and your Tiger(s.) We apologize.


Please be sure to pay close attention to SMARTTag and/or LTISD transportation alerts and updates so that you will know if/when disruption to your service has occurred.
