We had another great week at John Wayland, with field trips and an informative PAC meeting on Thursday. Mrs. Craun presented to parents the technology she uses in her classroom. We also had Dr. Oskar Scheikl and Dr. Larry Shifflett from central office here to answer any questions parents had about the use of devices in elementary classrooms.
Next week will be our last week before Spring Break, April 10-17. The fifth grade chorus will have their spring concert on Tuesday, April 4, beginning at 5:30 PM. Dominoes Pizza Night is Wednesday, April 5. The PTA Board meeting will be Thursday, April 5, beginning at 6:30 PM in the library.
We have enjoyed reading our One Book/ One School book, A Nest for Celeste, Students have visited Celeste in the office, and she has spent time in some classrooms! We will have an assembly to celebrate the book on Thursday when the Virginia Wildlife Birds of Prey will be at John Wayland beginning at 9:00.
To kick-off our Spring Break, we will have a staff vs. 5th grade basketball game on Friday, April 7. Selected students and staff members have been practicing long and hard for this event! We are anxious to see who the winner will be.
Parents may have noticed some storage trailers that have appeared in the parking lot. They are starting to move things for the renovation. Teachers are going through items in their classrooms and in the annex to begin packing up for the construction. We are asking that parents not bring in any more items for the engineering lab. We will use what we have so we don't have as much to pack up. Also, if you do have any boxes or know of anywhere to get boxes, we could use all that we can get for packing! Boxes can be brought to the office, and we will then distribute them to teachers. Thank you for your help with this!
Wilbur Pence Middle School is performing its musical this weekend. Also, please take note of some if the summer opportunities that are on the table in the foyer.
I hope you have a dry, pleasant weekend!
