Wetherbee Events

Wetherbee students present a check to the Firefighters United for Puerto Rico

The Middle School at the Wetherbee is very involved in community service. Four eighth grade girls, Dezani Torres, Jadeyshka Edwards, Gianny More, and Glenialis Collado, wanted to help the victims of the hurricane in Puerto Rico.  They organized a Penny War from grades K-8 at the school and collected for three weeks. Many of our students who have family in Puerto Rico were happy to have donated. With the support of Leah from Aaron’s Presents, the girls counted up the grand total of $2421.00, and decided to donate the money to a local organization, Firefighters United for Puerto Rico. Lawrence Firefighters Juan Gonzalez and William Pagan, who created the group, visited the Wetherbee School on October 23 to accept the check and thank the students personally.

On Friday, March 2nd, fifteen groups of sixth grade students from the Wetherbee School participated in a classroom BREAKOUT experience focused on the life and work of Dr. Seuss. By solving a series of mysterious clues and relying on teamwork to get them through each new challenge, five out of the fifteen groups were able to successfully BREAKOUT! Congratulations to the victorious students!

Ms. Zavalick's second grade class collected, analyzed, and displayed data during a St. Patrick's Day math activity.  Students were given a cup of Lucky Charms cereal and they had to count how many of Lucky's charms they each had. The students sorted the marshmallows and represented data using tally marks and a bar graph. At the end, they analyzed and compared their data with classmates and had a little snack.
