Every day was amazing at SWS this week. We could spend a looonnnng time sharing all the wonderful things going on here.
I'm going to focus on what I think were the two most exciting for students: the garden and the House wheel!
Several classes visited the garden this week. Students loved watering, weeding, and even harvesting some! In Mrs. Hope and Sims Classes students took note of observations they made.
In Mrs. Gibson and Thomas's classes, students were amazed at the actual feel of "real" vegetables! Here are a couple of photos to show just how excited they were!
The second amazingly fun experience was the House Wheel. We wanted to incorporate Houses after we saw their effect when we visited the Ron Clark Academy this spring. So we created our own house groups, built a wheel (special shout out to Mr. Chris Bell!), and painted it with our house colors.
Students in Mrs. Harris's class and Mrs. Luce's class spun this week. Other classes will join in the fun next week. Stay tuned for updates on our houses!
We have been working diligently this summer to create an exciting "first look" to SWS. So as you enter, think about walking down a Main Street. Here are a few pictures of our works in progress.
The school year has not started yet, but you can be assured that your teachers are already thinking and planning about this upcoming year!
What have we done so far?
We are so excited to meet all of our new students. We should receive our class lists during the third week in July, and we will be mailing letters as soon as possible after that. Please know that we will include a school supply list specific to our classroom needs in this letter. We encourage you not to use any other school lists.
However, if you are looking for sales, and buying a little all summer, some staples you can be certain your child will need are:
*glue sticks (lots!!)
*loose leaf paper
Please note that the Parent Orientation for SWS will be Tuesday, August 2nd at 5:00. We look forward to seeing you there!
