Two weeks ago Wilson Elementary had the pleasure of having two military veterans participate in a school-wide flag raising ceremony to commemorate Veterans Day. The musical trio Firefly also participated by singing the national anthem, and they did a beautiful job! Thank you to all the veterans and those currently serving our country.
Our second Parent Teacher Conference night is coming up! On Wednesday, December 2nd, from 2:10-8:00pm, please take advantage of an opportunity to visit your child's classroom and conference with his/her teacher. This is a great time to see how your child is doing in school, the quality of work he/she is doing, and talk about the needs and successes of your child, especially as we near the end of the first half of the school year. Below is a link to sign up for a time to meet with your child's teacher. We hope to see you there!
Every Friday after school, a group of students gathers in the school cafeteria to learn how to make robots. When I popped in today to see how it was going, I saw 5th and 6th grade students, boys and girls alike, working on laptops, discussing how to improve their robots, fiddling with their creations, and testing their designs. It was an incredible experience to see these students using robotics vocabulary and working together to create working, moving robots! The students love going to robotics class and learning how to use technology to make amazing creations.
