Mrs. Wittler's Interior Design Class designed doll houses this semester. Giving students the opportunity to envision a room design; that includes paint choices, furniture placement and material/pattern choices.
Once the doll houses were complete the Interior design class students Machella Buckendahl , Shelby Koch and teacher Kristy Wittler donated one of the houses to Lil' Cats Daycare. This is such a win - win for our community as it gives students valuable experiences and it allows the kids to give back to the community.
It's a GREAT day to be a WILDCAT
Thank you Interior Design Class for all of your hard work on this project!
On Friday April 7, 2017 the Elementary Student Council completed their Philanthropy Project and delivered approximately 165 books to the Haven House, Bright Horizons and Lil' Cats Daycare.
We started our journey in Wayne at the Haven House. The students were given a tour and the employees explained what Haven house does for Wayne County and other surrounding Counties. Haven House offers crisis intervention and prevention services for survivors of domestic violence & sexual assault (Source http://havenhousefsc.com/). They explained that our books would be given to children that might have left an abusive situation with nothing but the clothes on their backs. Our students are happy to provide an escape for these kids and families that are in need of an adventure. You can take an adventure in the contents of a good book.
Our next stop was at Bright Horizons in Norfolk. The staff and Mr. Petz (our Philanthropy Mentor) were awaiting our arrival. Bright Horizon is much like Haven House in respect to helping those in abusive relationships Bright Horizons is dedicated to the elimination of domestic violence and sexual assault through empowerment, education, social action, and support services (Source http://www.brighthorizonsne.org/). We visited shortly and were given a brief tour. Our students were able to present the books to several staff members.
Our final stop was only a few hundred steps from our school. Lil' Cats Daycare which just opened for business recently. We were able to present the books to Pam and Laura Greunke along with all of the Daycare Kids. We were invited into the daycare and the student council members stayed to read to the daycare kids. It was a great field trip and these students all learned some valuable life lessons.
It's a GREAT day to be a WILDCAT!
The Winside Wildcat app is now live in the stores.
Congratulations to the Wildcats that were named to the Lewis & Clark Central Division
In an effort to make our students more comfortable at school we have added a permit to provide medication at school. This will allow a certified medication staff member to provide the listed medications to students when they need them. If you would like your child to be provided these medications when they have a minor ailment please fill out the form provided and return it to school.
It's a HEALTHY day to be a WILDCAT!
