Mrs. Stayrook’s class is having a lot of fun lately! Here is what they were up to today! From Mrs. Stayrook: Our class began the strategy of determining importance. What better way to do that than by making pizza? We had to decide which ingredients were important and which were extra. The catch was, we could only choose 3! After discussion, we decided that we had to have crust, sauce and cheese. All the other things were extra. We then celebrated by making pizzas of our own inside the classroom. The kids loved it and it helped the strategy “stick.”

Hello, this is Kraig Hissong Superintendent of the West Liberty-Salem Local School District calling all WLS families and reminding you to remember to vote tomorrow on the Renewal of the 1% Income Tax. Remember, this is not a new tax and will not increase your current taxes. The renewal of the 1% income tax will maintain the funding that the school district has received since 1992. The income tax has been renewed by voters on 10 different occasions for the last 30 years. This funding is important for the day-to-day operations of the school district and costs the average family about 97 cents per day. With school funding from the state remaining about the same, local tax dollars are more important than ever to help provide high quality educational programs and staff. Thank you very much for your continued support of our school district and please remember to vote tomorrow on the Renewal of the 1% Income Tax. Thank you!
