Wiggin Street Parent Update

March 10, 2023


Better Together

Dear Wiggin Street Families,

This has been a great week at Wiggin Street which began with our K-2 Spring Musicals. The students put on an amazing performance under the direction of Mrs. Springer. We appreciate all the work that went into preparing the students and we're super proud of them!

I have included many pictures from other fun happenings this week. Matilda Sulzer was teacher for a day, the Kindergarten and First Grade students traveled to the Memorial Theater to see Seussical Jr., and the kindergarten got our Spinomi up and running.

Lastly, Ellis and Addy shared with students in the above video about our upcoming PBIS Dance Reward for students that have earned 50 PBIS points. Students in all grades have been learning dances in the gym through a collaboration with Mr. Evans and Mrs. Springer. It will be Thursday afternoon which will be a nice ending before a long weekend for students due no school on Friday for Teacher In-service.

We hope you have a great weekend!

Best wishes,

Christy Grandstaff

Ms. Sulzer: Teacher for the Day in Mrs. Eilbacher's Class

Ms. Sulzer had fun teaching 3rd grade today. She had her own desk, checked homework, led the class meeting, made our schedule for the day, organized crafts, a dance party, and helped with the Battle of the Books practice.

Grades 3-5 Ohio State Testing Dates

Please keep these dates in mind when scheduling appointments for April. Make-up testing takes some of our educators away from intervention instruction, so we like to limit it as much as possible.

3rd-5th Grade ELA: April 12-13

3rd-5th Grade Math: April 18-19

5th Grade Science: April 25-26

This site for students and families has lots of great information about the state test and 3rd grade Reading Guarantee. It also has a practice test that can be found in the image at the top of the page.
