Winter Happenings

Due to the lack of snow, snowshoeing for 1st & 2nd grades has been postponed until later in January. Keep your fingers crossed for snow! See below for specific dates.


The PTO is sponsoring a candy cane sale. Students will be able to purchase a candy cane for a friend, teacher or anyone at LIW! They will be sold at lunch time on December 18th and then the candy canes will be delivered on December 21st. The candy canes will be sold for $.25 each. (Students can send up to $5 worth of candy canes.)


Your child will be receiving information about a Building on Books Contest. This contest is designed to encourage reading and creative thinking over Christmas vacation. Students will need to design a model that replicates a scene of a book they have read (or been read to). They may use any form of media including: Legos, Play-doh, or screenshots of Minecraft or other online designs. Watch for more information to come home soon!


The National Geography Bee for 4th-8th grade students will be held in January. Students are encouraged to study world geography. There are several apps and websites to make the learning fun!
