Wednesday Words - 2/14/24

Dear Parents,


Happy Valentine’s Day! Please ask your child about our February Kindness Calendar which provides a different challenge each day such as “Say good morning to 15 different people today.” We even have some challenges for the weekend such as “Make your bed!”


Please join us in thanking our bus drivers and cab drivers during National Bus Appreciation Week. They so deserve an extra comment or note of appreciation.


For all the parents that made or brought something in for SOUPER Bowl lunch for the staff on Friday – THANK YOU!!


Something I have noticed during lunch is that there are several students who are buying 3-5 snacks each day. Those students are rarely eating the healthy part of their lunch. Please discuss with your child about their purchases and the importance of eating healthy.

Grateful for you,


Sherri Miller

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.
