How is technology changing education? As WIS pushes forward in our technology initiative we are starting to see the ripple effects in every aspect of the school day. Check out this video for a few examples of what this looks like at WIS:
Thanks to all our parents that came out for Parent/Teacher conferences last week. It was great to see so many of you in the building and taking the time to check on how your child is doing. Our book fair was also very successful and we appreciate those of you that stopped by to find something good for yourself or your child to read. In conjunction with our book fair, our students collected change in their homeroom classes for the All For Books challenge. This program raises money every year for children that are in need of reading resources. WIS students stepped up in a big way this year and raised over $1000. Awesome job!
Speaking of helping out others, the WIS community has a really cool service opportunity coming up. This Monday, November 4th, there will be an opportunity for all of us to be involved in a service activity tied to our current shoe collection drive. As many of you know, Sole Food (the shoe collection people) gives all of the proceeds from selling the shoes to Friends Against Hunger. FAH has an annual event where they package 1 million meals in a single weekend. It takes a ton of people to pull the event off, but it is so rewarding. Prior to the Million Meals event, they have 34,000 bags that must have an expiration label applied to them. So, with all of that said~ please join us in the WIS cafeteria Monday, November 4th immediately after school to help place stickers on these bags. This will be a great opportunity for us to serve together! Anyone is welcome; staff, students, family, friends, community members, anyone capable of placing a sticker. We hope to see you here!
Enjoy the cool November weekend!
