On Tuesday, March 4th, the Wetherbee School invited parents to have breakfast with their children to celebrate National School Breakfast Week and to kick off a Breakfast Contest to increase participation. Students learned about the importance of starting the day with a nutritious and healthy breakfast every morning. The Wetherbee School Breakfast Contest will have grades compete to see who can increase breakfast participation the most. Principal Colleen Lennon will keep students and teachers engaged in this contest by informing them every Friday where they stand. Good luck to all Wetherbee students!
During our February Vacation, several students from grades 3-8 participated in the Acceleration Academy. Students attended school everyday during their vacation from 7:30 - 3:00. They attended classes to help increase proficiency in ELA. In addition to academic classes students participated in art and physical education. Feedback from students was overwhelmingly positive. They enjoyed the small class size and innotative curriculum.
"I am so grateful that I got picked to go to the Academy, I know I am going to be a better student," said Nathan Suero (grade 5).
"I had an all-around good time and great learning experience with my educators," said Diego Ortega (grade 6). "I would love to attend the April Math Academy to extend my math knowledge and fix weak spots in my math knowledge," he continuted.
More than 350 students and family members from the Wetherbee School took part in some "Mad Science" recently. Science coach Jocelyn Petrosino and the Middle School Science teachers planned the event to increase Science awareness for families to help them understand the importance of science for their children.
