RWC students read Fireboat: The Heroic Adventures of John J. Harvey by Maira Kalman, which is an inspiring true story about a retired New York City fireboat that was reinstated on September 11, 2001. At WLB, a scholar wore a special jacket that belongs to her father who was part of a special clean-up crew at ground zero
Students across VS24 are always looking for opportunities to help worthy causes. Recently, RWC students, through a candy cane fundraiser organized by the school’s Student Council, raised $676.00 for St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital. Way to go, RWC!
RWC third-grade students are learning all about growth mindsets by changing their words from “I can’t” to “I can’t yet” and coming up with a plan on how they can accomplish their goals. Students had a great experience learning the importance of determination and how a positive, growth mindset can be an asset throughout their lives.
Surprise! Superintendent of Schools Dr. Donald Sturz popped in to read to RWC kindergartners. Dr. Sturz’s visit is exemplary of the District’s commitment to engaging students at an early age, making reading a fun experience that engenders a love of reading for life. On this visit, Dr. Sturz shared the book Are You Ready to Play Outside? by Mo Willems.
RWC second-grade students learned about the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. In discussing the Bill of Rights, the students learned about its importance in protecting our freedom of speech, religion, assembly, and due process of law. After, students created their own We The People sign and colored it in!
RWC kindergarten students listened to The Dot during class. The book is about a caring teacher who dares a doubting student to trust herself and her abilities by being brave enough to make her mark. What begins with a small dot on a piece of paper becomes a breakthrough in confidence and courage, igniting a journey of self-discovery and sharing, which has gone on to inspire countless children and adults around the globe. After, the kindergarten students used their creative minds and worked in groups to create and present something out of a dot.
