We are off and running to a great school year at Wascher! The classrooms are buzzing with learning and our teachers have created amazing communities in their classrooms. When you walk down the hall toward the cafeteria you will notice our Student Achievement Wall. Each month teachers will recognize students who are working to persevere at toward greatness in the classrooms!

When you come into Wascher's cafeteria you will notice we are decorated with college pennants! At Wascher we want every door to the future to be open for our students. As their first school experience, we have incredible power to plant the seed of future college and career preparation journeys! In our school district only 22% of our students’ parents have a college degree. We want to show students where their teachers and other staff members attended college to inspire them to follow in our footsteps and beyond! | Newsregister article


Wascher students ready for learning!  

Mrs. Kintz' first grade classroom is busy learning! Today they were using graphic organizers and collaborative learning to compare two stories. They are well on their way to a great year!

Free Breakfast/Lunch For All Students

We are pleased to inform you that the McMinnville School District will be participating in a one year pilot option for our school breakfast and lunch program funded by the USDA Child Nutrition Program.

This new option, called the Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) is only available to schools participating in the National School Lunch and School Breakfast Programs.

This will be a one year pilot program for the 2014-2015 school year.  The program may continue past the pilot year if there is strong meal participation. | Complete information

Sign up for eScrip

The PTA has a new way of bringing money to Wascher, through eScrip and all it requires is that you register your Safeway Club card with Wascher School. Here are the steps:

  1. Go to www.escrip.com
  2. Click on the “sign-up” link
  3. Follow the instructions to register your grocery card

Every time you shop at Safeway it puts a portion of what you spend in a Wascher account, with the potential of $150 per customer going back to the school. Spread the word with spouses, grandparents, neighbors and friends!

PTA Update
We now have school shirts available to purchase in our front office. The forms are on top of the display case. They are child sizes S-XL and are $9.00 for T-shirts and $22.00 for sweatshirts. This is a great way to show your Wildcat spirit and help raise money for our PTA events!

We have a new P.T.A. board this year, and they are getting started early. Katie Cox is our new president, Chad Riddle is our vice president, Becky Denham is our treasurer, and we are looking to fill our remaining positions. The board met this summer along to plan some exciting activities for the upcoming year. We strongly encourage you to checkout the new Wascher P.T.A. website Please contact Katie Cox or Mrs. Ferrua if you are interested in helping.
