Dear Families,

Happy New Year!  We hope that you and your loved ones have a year filled with health and happiness.  School will resume on Monday, January 4, 2021 following our normal distance learning schedule.

As we say goodbye to 2020, we remain optimistic that our doors will open soon for in person learning pending it is safe to do so. There will be a special Board meeting at 7 pm on January 11, 2021 regarding the next steps.  Here is the link to join.

Below you will find the most recent school and district updates.  As always, if you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to one of us directly at eatone@wwcsd.net or sheppardl@wwcsd.net.

Sincerely,

NWEA Winter Testing

We will begin our winter testing once school resumes. Please review the remote testing family guidance document here so you can ensure your child is successful testing remotely.  Please make sure your child takes this test independently without support from anyone in the home.  Simply encourage your child to do his or her best. This test does not affect grades.  It serves as a tool the staff can use to adjust instruction and monitor student progress and allows students to set goals for themselves and monitor their growth.

We are offering student incentives to encourage students to put forth their best effort to complete tests.  Students that show growth of three points in math, reading and science will be entered into a raffle (3 winners, one per grade) to win a movie night basket featuring The Sandlot, goodies and a $20 pizza gift card.

Students (6 per grade level) that are the highest achievers and show the most improvement on each test will have slurpees delivered to their house by the principals and possibly teachers!

Sandlot Movie Night Basket

We are running a reading contest through January 17, 2021. Please encourage your student to participate. All participants will be entered into a raffle to win a Burger King gift card. More information is in the flyer below.
