The sight the students saw when they arrived on Monday Morning!

Thank you Miss Diane and Miss Shannon!

As predicted, there was lots of exciting Dr. Seuss activity around Wawaloam School this week! We were so happy to welcome Miss Diane and Miss Shannon from the Exeter and Louttit Library! We had a lot of fun  finding out all of the places students like to read and presenting the Dr. Seuss book "I Can Read With My Eyes Shut"! 

While I read this classic and silly rhyming story, Miss Diane and Miss Shannon held up ALL kinds of props to go along with it! All of our students received a Dr. Seuss hat (yellow and black stripes for our bees) and the librarians gave everyone a special Dr. Seuss bookmark! The students also had a chance to design their own silly glasses! Some students gave their art to the librarians so it can be displayed in our local libraries!  A special thank you to Mrs. Curry, Mrs. Blake and Mrs. Ward for doing these activities with Kindergarten during our snowy day yesterday!!


Next week, on WEDNESDAY, MARCH 11 our food service provider, Aramark is having an "Eat Green, Wear Green" event to support healthy eating and celebrate foods that are green! The message from Aramark is Wear Something Green-Eat Something Green and Support Healthy Eating! 

Using our Boxtops Funding, Mrs. Larkin and I will be promoting healthy green eating by sharing a smoothie recipe with our students during our weekly meetings next week. This concoction will be comprised of spinach, pineapple juice and bananas!
