 RUN CLUB

Run Club Members! The race that we have all been working for will be next Saturday, May 29th at 9:00.  Our K-2 runners will kick things off with their mile race and the 3-5 runners will follow it up with their 2-mile race.  The race will be held right here at WCS.  I am beyond excited for these kids to show you the skills they have learned and the endurance they have gained!  Let me know if you have any questions!  -Mr. Hutchings  


HEALTHY HIGHLIGHTS

“Sometimes bad things have to happen before good things can.”

Becca Fitzpatrick, Crescendo

It has not been easy for any of us who have waded through this pandemic.  Looking back, what lessons have we learned?  What did we do that seemed to work?  What do YOU want to hang onto?  I feel that sometimes growth can be the process of learning from things that we have done.  I want to continue to grow and I want WCS to do the same. I would like to hear via email from anyone who wants to share something that seems to have really worked this year.  (Only positive observations, please).  This can be faculty, staff, parents, guardians, basically, anyone who reads this can respond.  I will compile the results and share them with Mr. Libby and Mrs. Dimbleby.  It does not necessarily mean that what you choose to share will be implemented going forward, but all will be read and shared. ~ Roberta Sherwood, R.N., BSN, M.Ed

 

LINES FROM THE LIBRARY

Although lots of things are different this year, we still were able to participate in the Chickadee and Maine Student Book Award programs! Our 4th-8th grade students had the opportunity to read 3 MSBA books and vote...over 60 students cast a vote. The Remarkable Journey of Coyote Sunrise by Dan Gemeinhart won by a landslide here at WCS, but finished in 2nd place statewide. The official Maine Student Book Award winner is New Kid by Jerry Craft! Our K-3 students listened to 10 different picture books and voted for their favorite. The WCS winner is Ninita’s Big World by Sarah Marsh. The official Chickadee Book Award will be announced at the end of the month...we are waiting with bated breath! Until then, ask your own child which book they loved the best.


LOST & FOUND
