1st Grade celebrated International Dot Day today by wearing polka dots and listening to a read aloud of "The Dot," a book by Peter Reynolds. The book shares the message that having the right mindset helps you reach your goals and to persevere.
The School Store fundraiser is off to an amazing start! So far we have had 88 students participate! We are still giving out prizes for going to the link provided on the envelope that was sent home last week. We would love to have every student participate! After the emails are sent out, your child can still receive more prizes. If those that you emailed, order something from the School Store website, your child gets credit for that too. The company will send all other prizes throughout the school year. Thank you to all who have participated so far!
Hello Parents, I want to personally thank all the families who have already participated in our SchoolStore fundraiser! We are on our way to reaching our goal, but we need everyone's help to make sure our teachers get the essential tools they need to help our students succeed. If your family has not participated, there's still time! This safe and easy fundraiser is 100% online so there is no face-to-face selling, collecting money, or delivering products. Your child will receive a prize just for participating, and more prizes will be awarded when goals are reached. Please help now. It really will make a difference. Go to https://www.schoolstore.net/sid.t?0000173669 to show our valued teachers your support. Thanks Willow Grove Elementary School P.S. Family participation is the key to our success, and we are counting on you!
