1) Embrace challenges

2) Learn from feedback

3) Persist through setbacks

Dr. Seuss Breakfast

Over 800 students, parents, staff, and stakeholders ate during Wahoo Elementary's annual Dr. Seuss celebration. Thank you to all the volunteers who make this tremendous event possible. A special thanks goes out to the amazing kitchen staff who prepared the green eggs and ham for all our guests. This is one memory our students will not forget.

Upcoming Assessment Dates

As the school year moves into the 4th quarter, below is a document that lists some key dates that assessments will be given in your child's classroom. These assessments provide our students a chance to show the amazing growth they have made during the course of the school year. Below are some suggestions on how you can help your student be prepared to do their best.

During the week of testing you can:

  • Be punctual. Stay aware of the testing schedule and make sure that your child is at school on time on testing days.
  • Get healthy sleep. Ensure that your child has gone to bed on time the night before so they're well rested.
  • Serve up a good meal. Make a healthy breakfast, including protein and healthy fat, to curb hunger during the testing session.
  • Listen intently. Encourage kids to listen to and follow all directions given by the test administrator. If they have questions, they need to be addressed before testing begins.
  • Take a timeout. Teach your child how to take "brain breaks" by stopping for a minute and taking a few deep breaths to help reduce test anxiety.
  • Plan a treat for when testing is complete. This could be something simple as a pizza and movie night or a weekend to a local park.

Parental Involvement Opportunties

Personal Devices at School

Many families send their child to school with a personal device of some kind (cell phone, iPod, high-tech watch). Often, parents do this as a safety measure so students can call/text as they travel between school and home. However, the growing number and types of these devices pose a significant distraction during school hours. Moving forward, all devices (including watches) that have the ability to text/call will be kept in backpacks from 7:45 to 3:15. Students are not to use these devices until they leave the elementary building.
