100th Day Celebration

Next Wednesday we will be celebrating the 100th day of school with a special dress up day.  We are inviting the staff and students to dress up as though they were 100 years old.  (However, we are asking that the students not bring walkers or canes).  If you need some inspiration for 100th day outfits we’ve created a Pinterest page   Please do not feel obligated to purchase outfits especially for this occassion.  Outfits can probably be found by combining outfits that are already in your closets.

Canned Food Drive

We are amazed at the generosity of out staff and students, once again. Today, we invited everyone to wear sweat pants and brings canned and boxed food in memory of our friend and middle school teacher Barb Norton. Mrs. Norton, who recently passed away, was a champion of children and families in need. The food, household items and money donated will be given to God’s Storehouse where Mrs. Norton volunteered. Thank you to the WEA for organizing this activity.

Look Who’s Talkin’

We are learning that most of the time the discussion about a math problem is more important than writing the correct numbers on a paper. In this picture 3 fourth graders work together to solve a problem. Join us tonight at 6:30 in the Wapak Elementary cafeteria to talk about math with us.
