If students arrive on campus after 8:30 am, please come to the door and sign your child in tardy with the QR code. Students should not be coming in after 8:30 a.m. without an adult checking them in.


All WCPSS laptops will stay at school so students can use them for educational purposes during the school day and during assessments. When students are using their device, we are asking students to refrain from having food or their water bottle at their desk. Spills are happening and devices are impacted.


If you have a change of address or new phone number, please contact Emily Spooney at



Ms. Haw's art room is in DESPERATE need of erasers! She could use as many Papermate Pink rectangular erasers as possible for all our little artists! This type works much better and crumbles less than other brands!

Judging vs Noticing

Noticing helps to encourage children in a way that makes their accomplishments their own rather than making it about us.


Judging: “That was a great slide!”

Noticing: “You did it! You came down the slide feet first and landed right in my arms.”


Judging: “Good job, Erica!”

Noticing: “Erica, you put your toys in the bins and your clothes in the drawers. You’ve cleaned your room so you can find things when you want them!”
