You did It!

Our students raised a total of over $5,000.00 and Mrs. Ferrua will be kissing a pig at our next assembly! Thank you to all of you who donated and collected pledges. We will be able to fund field trips, classroom supplies and hopefully purchase soccer goals for our field! Picture to the right is the top Jog-A-Thon students.

READY! for Kindergarten

Is a series of FREE age-targeted workshops that provide parents with support to promote healthy child development. Our first class is at Sue Buel Elementary on Thursday, October 23rd from 5:45-8:00. Each participant receives a FREE dinner for the whole family, FREE childcare during the workshop and FREE developmentally appropriate toys and books to take home. Pick up a registration form in the school office or call 503-565-4004 for more information and to register by phone.

Last week we had an assembly to launch our character word for first quarter: BRAVERY!  We have been talking with students about what it means to be brave as a learner. This means to show courage, believe in yourself and try new things.

We will be recognizing students who demonstrate bravery by giving out Bravery Tickets. Each Thursday there will be a drawing and students who are selected will earn a popcorn treat.  Check out these BRAVE kiddos!



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


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.
