2015-16 School Calendar

Summer Library

We are excited to announce that our amazing librarian, Sharon Buehler, will be offering Wildcat Wednesdays in the library this summer from 12-2PM. There will be special activities for students to participate in as they come to check out books to read during the summer. This opportunity is made possible by the McMinnville Education Foundation. Please enter through the playground.

Third Grade Summer School

Educational research shows that if students are strong readers, writers and mathematicians by 3rd grade, they have higher rates of high school graduation and college opportunities! This summer McMinnville School District will give our incoming third graders a boost by offering a summer school opportunity for them.

Summer school will last for five weeks total (2 in June & 3 in August). The school day will begin at 9:00 AM and end at noon with breakfast and lunch available before and afterward. A bus will be provided for students within our normal busing routes.

“Students reading proficiently by 3rd grade are four times more likely to graduate high school.”
–Donald Hernandez

“85-90% of readers receiving intervention before 3rd grade can increase reading skills to average levels; 75% of those receiving intervention post 9 years old will continue to have difficulties throughout their life in reading.”
-George Lesnick

At Wascher Elementary we are committed to doing whatever it takes to help all children achieve to their maximum potential. We believe that this summer school experience will do just that!

Second grade parents, please fill out the summer school application and return it to our office. We hope that all of our 2nd graders take advantage of this awesome opportunity! If you have questions please do not hesitate to contact Mrs. Ferrua at (503) 565-5402 or kferrua@msd.k12.or.us . | Application


We are currently seeking 4 year olds to join us in a free preschool program for next year. Please see the materials included in today’s Tuesday folder. This program will be a half day program, four days per week. It will be a fun, playful classroom where students will be learning letters, numbers and how much fun school can be! This is a wonderful opportunity for our community so please spread the word to any families with four year olds. If you have any questions please contact Mrs. Ferrua at (503)565-5402.
