Students with a growth mindset:

1) Embrace challenges

2) Learn from feedback

3) Persist through setbacks

Sheltered Reality School Assembly

Wahoo Elementary students were treated to an assembly February 9. The performers, called Sheltered Reality, provided a message about going "ABOVE and BEYOND" and showing kindness.

The message focused on the following key points:

1) Take a CHANCE

2) Never give UP

3) Believe in YOURSELF

4) Push back the NEGATIVE

***Special thanks to Wahoo Elementary PTO for providing funds for this assembly.***

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.

Casey's Cash for Classrooms
