W.A.Y.S. Weekly Update

Dear WAYS Community,

 

Hope you are having nice family time this week.  Our special education parents got their questions answered by our Resource teacher, school psychologist and speech therapist. On Friday many parents gathered for Coffee with the Principal, which I always enjoy. Yesterday our Kindergarten team of teachers went to literacy training, bringing all the new best practices back to our school.

This week our students will demonstrate what they have been learning in science.  We are looking for volunteers at the Salvation Army for breakfast, lunch, and hallway supervision.  Let us know if you are interested.  You should have received a nomination form from your child for the school site council.  We meet monthly and are looking for members.  Consider taking part in this important group.

W.A.Y.S. Weekly Update

Dear WAYS Community,

 

I hope you are enjoying your weekend.  It seems our autumn season is beginning to show.  This past week our students took their first official grammar test of the year.  Results will be available this coming week.  We also had our second DELAC (District English Language Advisory Committee) and

SSC (School Site Council) meetings.  Both were well attended and productive.  The next meeting is scheduled for October the 18th.  All WAYS community members are invited.

 

On Saturday, WAYS friends, families and staff along with Heal the Bay and Councilman Curren Price participated in Coastal Cleanup at WAYS park!  Hundreds of pounds of trash was collected from the alley and park.  Residents even joined in and we made such a difference.  A big thank you to all those who attended.
