Winter Wonderland

Thanks to the kindness of mother nature we were able to get a day of school in today.  No more days added to our calendar (at least for now)!  This week I  had the opportunity to visit with representatives from each of our 5th grade teams about their perspectives on how we are doing as a school.  From these discussions I have gained a more complete view of “school” at WIS.  The students were full of ideas on what they see as both good things and those that could be improved.  A few things became very evident: we have quality instruction and great students at WIS!  I look forward to taking their feedback and using it to make our school even better.

Tuesday WIS recognized all of our 1st semester honor roll and perfect attendance students at our honors assemblies.  Congratulations to all those students that received awards for these accomplishments.  Keep up the good work!

About 100 of our students earned a “limo lunch” reward during our fall PTO fund-raiser.  The 5th grade portion of this group got to take their trip on Thursday, but due to the weather today the 6th grade group will now go next Friday 2/5.

Events next week:

2/2 – 6th grade flip-flop girls, Hot Cocoa Club, Spanish club after school

2/3 – 3rd quarter mid-term point, running club, technology club

2/4 – PE club, PTO meeting 6pm, DARE graduation 6:30 pm

2/5 – AM Friday Choir, Hay Day benefiting the Humane Society, 6th grade limo lunch

Have a great weekend and enjoy the winter weather!

Back to School

It felt a little odd to complete a whole week of school! WIS students and teachers found themselves getting back into the routine and now have the 2nd semester up and running.  Our 2nd quarter iChoose field trip winners got to spend a little time away from the building this week.  What’s better than some bowling and a trip to Krispy Kreme? I heard a rumor that one of our building administrators is quite the bowler!   Everyone got to redeem some passport stamps today in our 2nd quarter iChoose store.  The upcoming week looks to be a busy one:

Monday – School will be in session as our first snow make-up day.
Tuesday – Hot cocoa cafe after school
Wednesday – Technology club and Running club after school
Thursday – Student council meeting and Science club after school
Friday – Friday Choir before school

WIS PTO is planning a new spring fund-raiser. Be looking for information to go out soon.  The document cameras purchased with the proceeds from our fall fund-raiser are on the way!  Thank you to everyone that has worked so hard to support our students and teachers.

The 2 remaining snow make-up days will be Monday Feb. 15th and Monday April 5th.  Let’s hope we do not need any to schedule any more. Bring on the warm weather!
