Thank you to all the parents and guardians who attended our book fair kick off night and literacy night!

Every Friday, football players and cheerleaders from Stratford High School visit our school for "High-Five Fridays". The students at WVE love seeing the high school students in the morning at the car rider line, the bus loop and in the cafeteria.
As part of the School Counseling Curriculum, we will be exploring career interests, personal skills, talents, and how early activities and interests influence career choices. Students will be able to relate how skills learned in school can be applied to the working world. As part of this learning process, it is important to expose our students to various professions. On Friday, May 20, 2016, beginning at 8:30 a.m. and ending at 10:45 a.m., we will be hosting a Career Fair. We hope to have a wide variety of careers show-cased for our students.
Each participant will have a table in the multi-purpose room to display items that relate to his job. Every 20 minutes classes will rotate in and out of the multi-purpose room. There will be four classes in the multi-purpose room at one time. Students will come to your display and ask you questions about your job. You will not have to give a presentation to a class but will speak with student individually or in small groups. Grades 3, 4, and 5 will participate in our Career Fair.
We had a great time this year at Project Unify!
Project Unify is our school's special olympics. Students participated in many events like basketball, ring toss, baseball and bean bag toss.
Students who didn't participate cheered on their classmates while the events went on.
