THE POWER OF POSITIVE SPEAKING
As we all go through our daily life it seems there is a lot of negativity in the news, on TV, and on the internet. It is worth remembering that ONE positive thought, or statement, shared with your loved one, your student, or your neighbor can go a long way to make life better. We can and will get through Covid, and any other thing that comes our way. You can often hear me greet others by saying, "Happy Day!" Why do I say that? The answer is simple, it truly is a happy day. In Woolwich, Maine we are so fortunate to live in a community that supports and cares for one another; so let's share those positive thoughts! Please send me one positive thought that you or your students have had this week and I will try to include as many as I can in next week's newsletter. ~Nurse Sherwood
WCS staff and students collected SO MANY boxes of pasta to donate to the Bath Area Food Bank! Yesterday was the last day for collection and all boxes were donated. We are so grateful for the Food Bank’s support and are happy to be able to give back!
In Art this week, younger students celebrated the Chinese New Year by creating Tigers or Chinese noodle bowls! Some younger students prepared painted papers for next week's Valentine's projects. A lot of good stuff is always happening in the art room. For more pictures click the link to see Ms. Devin's Art Room:
100th DAY OF SCHOOL
The 100th day of school will fall on Thursday, 2/17 and the Kindergarten classes will be collecting cans to celebrate! Kindergarten students in Mrs. Plummer and Mrs. Sample’s classes are encouraged to bring in a can or two to donate to the Bath Food Bank. Not only does this project help people in need, but it also provides many opportunities for math exploration (counting, sorting, grouping, etc.) Thank you for helping us celebrate the 100th day!
