A NOTE FROM MRS. JACOBS

Greetings Wilson Focus Families and Friends,

October is here! I would like to thank each of our families for all the support this school year as we have transitioned back to 100% at school. We continue to keep all our safety standards in place for the safety of all our students and staff.

Enrichment is back and going strong! Students new to our school and those returning have been engaging with excitement in the many class offerings available. It is a joy to hear the laughter and see students in the garden, playing soccer, frisbee, gym games,Tae Kwon Do, Yoga, Cheerleading, Zumba, needlepointing and more. This year we've also welcomed the Henry Doorly Zoo staff. They have brought some special animal guests.

A "No Place for Hate" group in connection with the Anti-Defamation League meets each Wednesday during Enrichment. This group of student leaders will engage our school in promoting kindness and acceptance of others. Our school is working towards certification as an official "No Place for Hate" school through required activities. Our school will earn a banner to display with pride in our gym.

Our Fall Harvest Celebration will be October 29th.  If your child would like to dress up, have them bring their costume and they will change before the start of the celebration (no violent costumes or play weapons). If your child would like to bring a treat to share with the class, it needs to be store bought and individually wrapped.  Our Parent Pride Organization will be reaching out to parents for help with the class celebrations.

We will be enjoying these last fall days together as we plan for another beautiful season and the end of 2021!

To that end, the award recognizes schools, districts, and IHEs that:

  1. Reduce environmental impact and costs;
  2. Improve the health and wellness of schools, students, and staff; and
  3. Provide environmental education, which teaches many disciplines, and is especially good at effectively incorporating STEM, civic skills, and green career pathways.
