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

Do you Shop on Amazon

You can link your account with Wascher PTA and earn money for our school!

Wildcat Gear

Wascher T-shirts are for sale in our front office. They are $9.00. We also have Wildcat water bottles for $5.00.

Sign up for school closures/delays

School closures and delays are also posted at www.pdxinfo.net. This site is part of the FlashAlert messenger service, which distributes updates to news stations and subscribers. You can sign up for FlashAlert email messages at www.flashalert.net/id/mcmsd. If you had previously been signed up for Flash Alert, but haven’t logged in for a year or more, please sign up again.

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.
