Under the leadership of our district's Pre-K Coordinator, Mrs. Nemzek, learners in Mrs. Garofalo's and Mrs. Cook's kindergarten classes have been participating in a social and emotional program based on the TV show Mr. Rogers. This program is available to us through St. Vincent College's Fred Rogers Center for Early Learning. Recently, Mrs. Cook's learners talked about feelings... what they are, feeling words and appropriate ways to react to their feelings. Today’s lesson was all about “our shine” and how we can grow our own shine as well as help others grow their’s.

On November 7th, gifted 5th grade learners across WASD competed in the Thinking Cap Quiz Bowl against other teams in the Northeast Division of the United States. This group of eight learners earned 2nd place, losing only by five points to the first place team. This yearly competition is a self-scoring, computer contest of 100 multiple-choice questions. The test runs approximately one hour, depending on the speed of the answers - bonus points are awarded for speed! Areas include math, geography, government, sports, spelling, science, literature, English, history, general information, and just fun trivia. It is a team activity with all contestants around one computer. In April, the team will compete again – that time versus teams from all 50 states.
