Fifth graders in Mrs. Orahood’s class completed their first lab of the year, “Drops on a Nickel”. This lab challenges students to see how many drops of liquid can fit on the top of a nickel. It also teaches students to use the steps of the scientific method, make a hypothesis, and to make small consistent drops while working on their technique with a partner. Great job, 5th graders!
It’s another great week to be a Tiger!
Additional seating to accommodate fans at tonight’s football game is available in what is traditionally our student section. Go Tigers! Graphic credit: WLS Jungle on Instagram
Hello WL-S Families, We have a couple of announcements prior to tonight's game verses Fairbanks. First, The Tiger Band is selling popular brands of Laundry Detergent/Pods, Fabric Softener, Dishwasher Pods, Body Wash, and trash bags in bulk. You can order yours tonight at the booth located inside the stadium. Cash and Check are accepted payments. Also, get your tiger gear at the WLSAA Tiger Store located next to the concession stand beside the home bleachers. Next, we want to remind families that students should not bring footballs or other items to play with during the game and should avoid rough horseplay that could cause someone to get hurt. Children should remain inside the stadium during the entire game. We encourage elementary students to sit with parents during the football game. Elementary students should not be left unattended and at no time should they be running/chasing inside of the track during the game. MS and HS students should enjoy the game and cheer loud for our Tigers from the students section. Lets have a great game and go Tigers! Thank you, Kraig Hissong
Little Tiger Cheerleaders will perform during second quarter of the home football game tonight! Attached are details for our Little Tigers and their families. Come out and support them and our cheerleaders after a week of hard work! Go Tigers!
