CALLING ALL 4TH GRADE PARENTS!

Did you know that the yearbook has pages designated for special “farewell” pictures of the 4th grade students?

Parents can submit a picture of their 4th grader for these special pages until Jan 31, 2019.

The picture should be:

  • A favorite current picture of the student (typically outside of school either doing a favorite activity or on a vacation, etc.)
  • A close up picture is a better picture- the boxes are smaller and if we can’t zoom in its hard to tell who the kids are
  • Picture MUST be a digital and MUST be at least 1 MB in size.  It will not print clearly in the yearbook if not at least 1 MB.  Some iPhones are set to take larger pictures, but many other smart phones are not set to take pictures in the large size.  We have to return almost 50-75 pictures because they are not the correct size.  Please check your phone settings before sending in a picture.
  • Due date is JANUARY 31 2019
  • Pictures should be submitted via email to wyoprimyearbook@gmail.com.  Each picture must include child’s name, building and homeroom. Pictures are not to be submitted to your room parents!
  • Any questions, please send those also to wyoprimyearbook@gmail.com

Thank you!-

WYOMING PRIMARY ZERO WASTE LUNCH REMINDER

The Next Zero Waste Lunch is Tomorrow

Thursday, December 13!

The Wyoming Primary School Zero Waste Lunch Program helped reduce our lunch waste substantially last year. This year Wyoming Middle School is joining the challenge. Studies show that regular waste-free lunch challenges change behavior throughout the year and this has proved true in Wyoming! Students think more about eating all of their food or taking home leftovers to eat later; and parents and students pack lunches in reusable (rather than disposable) packaging more often.

What can you do to help your child prepare for a Zero Waste Lunch? Encourage your child to remember the four R’s of Reduce, Reuse, Recycle and Rot.

It is easier for your student to control how much waste they produce if they pack lunch:

Reduce: They can reduce food and packaging waste by only packing the foods they will actually eat in amounts they can finish. Lunch time is limited! Pack fresh food (rather than prepackaged items).

Reuse: Pack lunch in reusable containers instead of plastic baggies; use a lunchbox instead of a brown bag. Choose a reusable bottle for drinks. Pack utensils and a cloth napkin from home instead of disposables.

Recycle: If the food item must be sent in packaging, please try to make sure it is recyclable.

Rot: We compost at each of our primary schools. There is a container that students can put unfinished fruit and clean (no dressing) veggies in. Kids can send their organic waste back to the earth through composting.

Your child can incorporate the four R’s when buying lunch at school: remind them to select foods they will eat and food with minimal packaging; recycle water bottles, juice, and milk cartons (after pouring out leftover liquids); and compost organic scraps!

The kids are always up for the challenge of setting a new record for reduced lunch waste. If you can, please help them pack their lunch on Thursday, December 13, in reusable containers. Ask your kids what they will actually eat in their lunch—and remind them to eat it all or bring home leftovers! (And please try to integrate these habits every day!)

Wyoming students are blazing the trails in learning, improving, and creating greener habits!

Thank You For Your Help!

Kindergarten: Heart Handprints:  We painted K’s hands with paint and printed them in a shape of a heart.

1st Grade Georgia O’Keefe Inspired Flowers: Big, beautiful and bright flowers drawn from looking at flower photos, using crayon and marker.

2nd Grade Romero Britto Inspired Self-Portraits: Using a mirror, 2nd graders learned how to draw their faces in proportion and detail with borrowing inspiration from artist Romero Britto for background pattern design. Portraits are colored neatly with a combination of marker and crayon.

3rd Grade Memoji’s:  In this project, third grade students thought of characteristics of themselves and turned those into emojis that represent them.

4th Grade Letter Design:  Fourth Grade students learned about company logos.  Each student chose a letter that was special to them and transformed it into a unique letter logo.  This letter became the focal point and is a repeated design within their artwork.

5th Grade Landscape with Linear Perspective:  Students learned some of the “tricks” artists use to create a sense of depth in a landscape drawing.  Landscape layers, a vanishing point, size, placement and detail were all introduced to make a unique landscape.

6th Grade Symmetrical Totem Designs:  Students learned about animal symbolism in the totem pole designs of the Pacific Northwest Coast Indians and created their own symmetrical totem image using their initials.

New to Town: Community Toy Swap

Looking for budget-friendly toys in an environmentally-friendly way? Participate in the Community Toy Swap at 2:30 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 18, at Wyoming Baptist Church’s Fellowship Hall. Please bring any clean, unbroken, usable toys that your family is ready to pass on and search for you own treasures. Children’s books, DVDs, and CDs are welcome, too. Toy collection will begin at 2:30 p.m. and the shopping will begin around 3:30 p.m. You do not have to donate toys to participate. Donating toys without shopping is an option, too.

Children are welcome to attend. Remaining items will be donated to Valley Interfaith.
