Math students in Mrs. Peterson’s 5th grade classroom ended their first week with a fun challenge. Groups were given the task to complete a BreakOut Box called “Break Out the Beat”. Each group raced against the clock to solve puzzle clues to find the combination of 5 different locks. Some pretty cool dance moves were used in this challenge! Congratulations to Mrs. Creager’s classroom for having the fastest Breakout time. Good job 5th graders!

Hello WL-S families this is Kraig Hissong, Superintendent. Today was a great first day to start off the school year. It was also a good day at the MS and HS Parent Drop-Off Loop. Traffic was heavy this morning, but continued to flow well. A few reminders: Please remember to let your children out from the right lane (Curb Lane) so they do not have to cross traffic. Also, please remember to pull around as far as you can before stoping to let your children out. Last, if you utilize the parking area in the middle of the MS/HS loop, please make sure your children use the crosswalk located at the top of the loop to go into the building. Also, remember if you have elementary students, continue to use the main drop-off loop. MS and HS students may also use the main drop off loop, which was not busy today. See the attached photo. The green highlighted area marks where you can let your children out of your vehicle. The pink highlighted area, indicates the cross walk for the center parking. Thank you and we will see you tomorrow.
