While on vacation in Chicago, Tyler had an opportunity to attend the Expo during the 2018 International Society of Technology Educators (ISTE) National Conference. He had an opportunity to interact with cutting edge instructional technology. We can't wait to hear the new ideas he has for technology in the classroom at WHAM!
It is hard to believe that another year has come and gone. We have enjoyed working with each of our families and are working this summer to prepare for the upcoming school year. Be sure to get lots of rest, have plenty of fun, and complete your summer reading. Take a few moments to help us celebrate the WHAM 5th grade class of 2018. We will miss each of you, but we are sure that you will all go on to do phenomenal things in middle school!
Evie Syas, a WHAM student, participated in National Lemonade Day for the first time this year (on Saturday, May 5th). During the planning phases, Evie decided she wanted 100% of the proceeds to go to the OLOL Children’s Hospital. Her stand was Evie’s LemonAID Stand and the lemonade was free with a donation of any amount.
She worked hard and planned for the day: she tested recipes; she drew a blueprint of how the stand should look; and she stayed up late Friday night getting it ready. She even thought of our furry friends and had water and treats for dogs!
On Saturday she worked to setup the stand; she greeted customers, she waved her sign around to attract potential customers; she worked the cash register; and she served the lemonade and sweet treats for customers.
Afterwards, she counted the donations from the day and we’re proud to say she raised over $700! The funds were delivered to OLOL Children’s Hospital and she signed a BIG check to commemorate the donation.
This Friday, Stacie James, our art teacher, has an event set up to showcase some of the students` art from WHAM. She will have a tent in front of The Pink Elephant on Government Street from 6 pm - 10 pm, as part of The MidCity Merchants: Hot Art, Cool Nights on Friday, May 11th. We need adult volunteers to help man the booth.
