New Flash – September 27, 2017

School Lunch
We will be offering chili cheese nachos for lunch this Friday. The cost is $3.00. Orders will need to be placed and paid for Thursday, September 28.

Field trip
WHCA will be taking a school-wide field trip to the Pumpkin Patch at the Farmhouse in Ellerslie on Friday, October 13, 2017. The cost is $12.00 and includes lunch, a pumpkin, hay ride and a craft. We will meet at the Farmhouse at 9:15 a.m. Because this is a school-wide field trip, there will be no supervision at school during the day. Any student not attending the field trip will need to stay home.

The lunch choices for students are peanut butter and jelly or ham and cheese. Parent who purchase tickets to participate will have a choice of chicken salad or pimento cheese sandwiches for lunch. All lunches will be served with chips, drink, and dessert.
*The permission slip and payment are due by Friday, October 6, 2017.

Parenting Corner
When parents boast about their children with other people, what do most say first? Is it how nice they are to strangers? Or how much volunteering they did last year? Usually not. More often, they talk about their good grades in school, or the prestigious college they went to, or the much sought-after summer internship they landed. But this is backwards. John Rosemond suggests that children need a dose of vitamin N. Please take time to watch this informative video.
