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.

Please take a few minutes to complete the Advanced Ed parent survey. As an AdvancED accredited organization, it is important for us to gather feedback from our stakeholders to monitor and make improvements as we strive to provide all students with a superior educational experience. This survey should take about 5 minutes to complete.
All surveys must be completed by the end of the day on May 11, 2018. Thank you in advance for supporting the magnet program at WHAM.

Our fourth-graders supercharged their standardized test-taking skills with academic stations and physical games during the school’s annual LEAP Olympics. Students were divided into Red, Blue, Yellow, Green and Orange teams, each taking practice tests on LEAP subject areas and participating in games.
This was an exciting opportunity for our students as we continue to SOAR.
Thanks to all the teachers and parents for making this event a success.
Moonlight in the Gardens has become one of our favorite WHAM family nights. Our families had an opportunity to enjoy the music sounds of Baton Rouge Music Studio and WHAM alumnus Sam Short performing with the band Frostbite. Whether it was from a food truck (Mr. Ronnies Hot Donuts and Hamburgers, Geaux-Yo Frozen Yogurt) or a picnic brought from home, the food was delicious. The evening was filled with music, food, friendship, and fellowship!
