March 4 Spirit Day-Dress like your favorite book character

For next Friday's Spirit Day, we are encouraging students to dress like their favorite book character! This will be in celebration of Read Across America.

Attendance Reminders

When your student will be absent due to illness, an appointment and/or trip, please contact the attendance line at 970-488-5551. You may also use the attendance feature on the ParentVUE app.

While letting the classroom teacher know about an upcoming absence is helpful, the front office also needs to be alerted when your student will be absent during the school day.

Werner Science Fair-Final Details

  • Please make sure to label project boards and all items brought to school with students' names and homeroom teachers. This will help us return projects to students after the fair. Projects will be sent home with student on Monday after the fair.
  • Projects should be brought to school with students next Thursday morning. Students should take projects to their homeroom classes where they will have an opportunity to present and share with their friends. At the end of the school day, projects will be taken down to the gym for setup. If necessary, a family member may come to school at the end of the day to help with anything heavy or delicate. Please make sure to sign-in as a visitor before entering the school.
  • Teachers have scheduled a time to take their classes down to the gym next Friday to view the projects. We will have an open house Friday evening for families wishing to walk through the gym and view the projects. To increase safety, we ask that you do not congregate indoors. Families should plan to attend during the following times:
    • 5:00-5:45- Last names beginning with A-M
    • 5:45-6:30- Last names beginning with N-Z
  • Awards will be announced and presented on Monday, March 7th after the fair is complete.

Kind regards,

Science Fair Next Friday!

Werner Reading Challenge

In honor of National Reading Month, we encourage students to read every day and join in our Werner Reading Challenge. The goal is to read as many minutes as possible over the month of March.

  • Each day, students will write the name of the book and the number of minutes read on the Student Reading Log. Being read to will also count in the challenge!
  • For any student that turns in a Student Reading Log at the end of March, they will receive prize (any number of minutes).
  • For students that read at least 300 minutes for the month, they will receive a token for the book machine.
  • If our whole school reads over 100,000 minutes, we will have a special prize for the whole school!

After March 31, students will turn in their Student Reading Log to their teacher. Have fun reading Wildcats!

Also, students will receive one of the paw bookmarks (see picture) from their teacher in the coming week as part of the celebration of reading.

Plans for Next Year (2022-2023)

As we are starting to work on plans for next year, please let our office (970-488-5550) know if you will not be returning to Werner next year or if you have moved. If you have a new student planning to come next year, please visit our New Student Registration on our website.

We are excited that our students will get to showcase their talents in the upcoming music programs for K-4th on March 31 (5:30 PM for 1st & 2nd and 6:30 PM for 3rd & 4th) at Timberline Church. Here is more information for 1st/2nd and 3rd/4th.
