Internet thought of the week
Question every parent should ask themselves: How familiar are you with social media opportunities on the internet for children and adults?
Reminder that the next PTA meeting will be held on Thursday, Feb. 14 at 6:30 p.m., right here at WCS. We will be providing babysitting at this meeting for any parents who would like to attend.
We would love to see new friends and welcome new ideas, so please consider attending even if you have never have before. We hope that you will join us.
Where’s your jacket? How about your hat, your mittens, lunch box or boots? Probably in the lost and found box at school. Please make an effort to check the box, as all unclaimed items will be donated to a local charity soon.
Parents: please be sure to label all of your child’s belongings. Labeled items found in the lost and found will be returned to their owner. Thanks for your help.
