The 7th Grade Class worked on a performance arts piece of "Theme for English B" by Langston Hughes in their Communication Arts Class for Black History Month. They did a wonderful job representing Langston Hughes work and their interpretation put a lot of meaning to the words. The 7th grade shared their work with the school by putting on performances for each class and for parents that came in to see it. Great job 7th Grade and thank you to Mrs. Wyman for the instruction that inspired them.

Recently, in Miss Simon's class, the students completed a Taco Truck project where students had to create, design and build their own taco truck business. This included creating a name, logo and menu for their business as well as building the truck and three dimensional appliances. Students worked on adding decimals, finding area and perimeter, 3D shapes and functional writing to complete this project.

Penny Wars was such a success that Wolcott was able to purchase 1,710 items for the Thornton Food Pantry. Great job Wolcott students and families for working together to raise the funds to do this and for all of your generosity.
Because of the fun that also goes along with Penny Wars, we would also like to congratulate our classroom winners which were Mrs. Perez's Class, Miss Simon's Class, and Miss Beymer's Class.
We also want to thank student council for all of their hard work that made this event a success and all of the staff that helped with organizing the event, collecting the money, counting the money, and purchasing the food.

Today is the first day of Red Ribbon Week and we are excited to kick off this week where we will learn about making smart and healthy choices for our bodies and about saying No to Drugs.
We've already announced the winners of our Red Hot Tamales Estimation contest and they were Mubarak in 2nd Grade, Brenda in 5th Grade, and Courtney in 7th Grade.
Today we also worked to together to spell out this years theme "Send a Message: Say No to Drugs" out on the playground using our red shirts and a drone overhead.
We are excited to see what else the week brings as we celebrate making positive choices.
