Welcome to the 2013-2014 school year at White Rock Elementary!
Check our website often for information on upcoming events.
I can't believe it is mid December already! We have had so many exciting events happen here with our students at White Rock this year. Just this last week, the Rotary sponsored a Scholastic Book Fair. Each child received 12$ to spend, and each teacher received 100$ worth of books for their classrooms. THANKS ROTARY!
Our Second Annual spelling bee was a marvelous success with 27 participants from grades 3-6. The words were tough, and the competition tougher. Two 4th graders, Victoria Bughera and Savinna Prasad braved it out to be our champion and first runner up. Each girl won a $15 gift certificate to Barnes and Nobles. They now have more words to study as they prepare for the County Spelling Bee! Congratulations to all of our spellers!
Radio Disney was here with a great assembly from the Metropolitan Air Quality Board. Students wrote essays to thank Radio Disney, with ideas on how to be environmentally friendly. The winning class will earn a snack time with the MAQB mascot.
Mrs. Waugh joined us in the beginning of November as a 2nd grade teacher. This meant that we were able to split up our combination class and reduce the number of students in each of the 3rd and 2nd grade classes. I hope we will be able to reduce class sizes in other primary grades next year.
In case you didn't know, we have an English class for adults that has been happening three times a week in room 22. Interested parents, please come to the office for more information.
This is just a taste of what is happening this month at White Rock. Join us for the first ever Movie Night on December 13 from 6-8. Wear your pajamas, bring a blanket, and join us for The Polar Express.
Finally, I hear from many of you about how happy you are that your children attend White Rock. Please let the district office know. Also, there is a website called Great Schools.org
that has places for you to leave a comment about White Rock. Please go to the site, create an account and tell the world what you think about White Rock.
Have a safe holiday season!
