Dear WAYS Community,
I hope you have had a nice and relaxing break with your families. I’m sending this email a few days early as I am not going to be near my computer in the next few days.
We have made some changes to the April calendar so I have attached a copy of the updated one April Calendar Update . The last week of school was a full one. Many students as well as teachers got into the spirit by participating in spirit week. We had college day, funny hat day, pajamas and twins day. On Friday, many students took part in Mix it up activities, and the lower grade teachers at the Salvation Army showed Wreck it Ralph in the chapel as a fundraiser, and invited all other grades to watch. Mr. Cabil delivered another yummy nutrition class demonstrating how children’s’ behavior is greatly effected by what they eat.
The fifth graders had their physical fitness tests this week. All fifth graders in the state of California participate in 6 areas of physical fitness exercises.
The School Site Council met for the second time on March 20th, and the group came up with preliminary goals for the school. I hope you will join us for pour next meeting in April 24th. The School Site Council is made up of teachers, parents, staff members and community members. We look forward to your input on how to make our school even better.
On Monday April 1st (yes, April Fool’s Day) the teachers have CPR training during the non pupil day.
Revolution foods will be preparing a taste test of their natural and healthy foods next Thursday, so we can decide if we want this company to provide our meal service next year. Friday is our monthly
coffee with the principal at the Salvation Army.
A reminder that testing is right around the corner. You can help by making sure your child arrives to school on time every day. If your child has breakfast at school it is imperative that he/she get to school by 7:15.
Many children are skipping breakfast and sometimes we don’t have any left when they come in hungry later in the morning. A good breakfast is important for learning. Please also, do not miss school unless your child is sick. The attendance of your child effects the whole classroom as the teacher must repeat instruction which can slow down learning.
Have a great weekend and holiday.
