2016 Wingate Penny Wars Have Begun!
Wingate students will be helping to "Paint the World Purple" and raise money for Relay for Life and The American Cancer Society. Pennies give your team points. The silver coins and bills take points away from the other teams. The highest total will win a pizza party for each of the classes on the team.
In music class, first, second, and third grade students are realizing that EVERY DAY IS EARTH DAY by discussing how we share the world with many different people, animals, and plants, and that if we want our planet to stay healthy, we need to respect all living things so that our planet will continue to be a beautiful, healthy place for people in the future.
On March 15, 2016 Wingate Elementary hosted its sixth annual Career and Culture Day for kindergarten through fifth grade students. The goal of this event for students in kindergarten through second grade to learn from guest speakers about different cultures from around the world. The goal for third through fifth grade students is to hear about various careers from members of our community.
Students, staff, and families from Wingate Elementary joined together to celebrate Read Across America. It was a month-long celebration that included many activities that encouraged our students to keep reading. The event began with Spirit Week . Teachers and staff members dressed- up to represent different Dr. Seuss book characters. Week two focused on exposing students to books that included stories and cultures from around the world. During the last week of the celebration, students wrote book recommendations to students in different classrooms.
