The last few months at Wait haave been filled with celebrations- celebrations of learning, reading, academic accomplishments, and teamwork! In March, Right to Read Week was SUPER! Our superhero theme was a big hit for our Super-Powerful Readers who wore capes and costumes while participating in a variety of reading activities. We had a special visit from local author, Eric VanRaepenbusch and students also enjoyed reading in a bat cave!
May started off with staff appreciation week and our PTA hosted a delicious breakfast for us and our students showered their teachers with tokens of their appreciation. These heart-warming efforts were inspirational and so meaningful to the staff.
Our Kindergarten and First Grade teams each enjoyed their own countdown to the last days of the year. Kindergarten participated in ABC countdown with each day representing an activity. Friendship Fruit Salad was a hit for many classrooms and Popcorn Parties were also fun! They enjoyed their ABC countdown as they zoomed toward Z and the last day of school! First graders also participated in a countdown and some highlights were Hat Day, Beach Day, and Sports Day!
Our first graders went on an adventure to Wagon Trails and used their up close encounter to help with writing their animal research paper. They had stories to tell about their animal encounters and loved being so close to them!
To celebrate the end of the year and moving on to Campus- soon to be known as Streetsboro Elementary, Mrs. Cruse grilled hot dogs for all of the first graders! This special lunch time event was enjoyed by our first graders and their teachers. The enthusiasm and cheers for the great hot dogs could be heard down the hall! What a great way to end their time at Wait!
Our beach-themed end of the year celebration for our preschoolers was a spectacular show! The little ones danced, performed, and melted hearts! Our preschool team organized a memorable graduation ceremony for our preschoolers moving on to Kindergarten. The graduates looked adorable in their caps!
Our kindergarteners and first graders were visited by librarian, Ingrid Wenger, from the Pierce Streetsboro Library. She encouraged them to participate in their summer reading program. Please stop into the public library to learn more! 8990 Kirby Lane Streetsboro, OH 44241 330-626-4458
Field Day was a huge success! Mrs. Hendrix, Mrs. Schwerdtfeger, and Mrs. Windle planned a fantastic day filled with fun activities and physical fitness! Our PTA supported this event through donations and volunteers. Thank you to Stacey Leonardi, our PTA VP, and the many volunteers who participated in this day and other events throughout the year.
Letters will be mailed home to families in June to let them know of their teacher, supply list, and beginning of the year important dates. Our Wait staff would like to wish our students and their families a safe and fun-filled summer!
