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.

We also want to congratulate Ms. Wager's (ECHO) class on winning the Red Ribbon Week door decorating contest and also the Kindergarten classroom on having the most spirit week participation! Both classes will receive a pizza party this week!
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.
Trunk or Treat was ghoulishly good time! Thank you to all who participated and donated to help make it a freakishly fun night. Screeches go out to all the "spook"tacular trunks. Moans and groans to the Uidl, Ferguson, and Coon families for the top 3 trunks!!

Miss Gobeli's class kicked off their ocean unit in science by making an ocean in a bottle! They made it with corn syrup, food coloring, and vegetable oil. It's one way to see that the greater the depth, the less light the water gets. They will be doing another project soon with the different zones of the ocean, so stay tuned!

Middle school students have been learning about animal cells and they have been learning to recognize and label the parts of the cell. As a fun way to learn and practice the vocabulary, Ms. Gobeli's class made an edible animal cell using different candies and ingredients to represent the parts of the cell. It was a great learning project and it was yummy too!
