Hello WAAS Families!

We are off to another great week at WAAS despite the rain and inside recess the past two days.  Students are engaged in every class, and there is much learning taking place!  It is wonderful to be a part of it!  
I hope that Sept. 26 at 7:00 pm is on your calendar to attend our seminar on Critical Thinking Skills and ways to help your child outside the classroom.  I am looking forward to meeting with you to share with you some information and strategies that should help improve your child’s thinking and communication skills (writing and speaking).  Please click on this link to sign up and bring a friend!
It is not too late to sign up for Lego Robotics.  The first meeting will be Monday, Sept. 26 2:30-3:45. Please click on this link to sign up:
Since I am often  asked by parents  what they can do to support the teachers and let them know how much they are appreciated, I have designed a list of their favorite beverages and snacks.  Our teachers arrive to school early and work late, and these items are much appreciated. Once we are here, we do not like to leave.  Please click on this link to see if this is an area that might interest you.
For their community service, Mrs. Errante and a group of our students are collecting items for the Fix A Friend Clinic.  The website is http://fixafriendclinic.org/  You may support their efforts by making donations and giving to Mrs. Errante or Mrs. Upton. Please see the list below:
Friskie’s pate’ cat food
Pedigree pate’ dog food
distilled water
paper towels
double A batteries
dog and puppy pee pads
hydrogen peroxide
towels, hand towels, washrags
13 gallon and 55 gallon trash bags (drawstrings with 13 gallon)
HE liquid laundry soap
Thank you for all that you do for our great school!
