Off to a Great Start!!!

The 2018-2019 school year is off to a great start!!! Students have transitioned well and we are in full swing.  Resource class is working on learning skills and homework help.  We have started a whole class book called, James and the Giant Peach, practicing our writing, comprehension, and oral fluency.  Wednesday is Math homework help day but we have been reinforcing Math skills with extra practice that goes along with the Math targets for this unit.  The students love this exciting book and it will also help them to earn AR points as well!!!! 

Million Word Club!

The WMS "Million Word Club" is up and running. Students who read a million words are honored with a free t-shirt that they can wear with jeans every Friday. They are also invited to nice luncheon at the end of the year with our local Rotary Club.  Good luck students, keep reading!!!!!

Accelerated Reader

Independent reading is a requirement for students. Each student is required to read a minimum of thirty minutes, five times a week. Please help your child become a better reader by making sure they read within their ZPD for the recommended time. Students are expected to take and pass AR tests to meet their individual goal. The only way to do this is to READ!!!!!
