This year our district has added brass instruments to our music curriculum in elementary schools. This week 5th graders in Mrs. Schaffner’s class got their first experience with learning to blow through the mouth piece. Music teacher Karen Wentzel will have this group making beautiful music in no time!







Art from our artist in residence Sonia Allen. She helped students learn to make prints using collage plates. To learn more about Sonia Allen, visit her website.


Congratulations GT Readers who won the Wascher Battle of the Books and came in second at the district Battle. We are so proud of you!

Students will make up school on June 13th 2014

Due to inclement weather school closures on February 7 and February 10th. The last day of school is now scheduled to be June 13th and is contingent upon normal calendar operation for the remainder of the year. Additional make up days, if needed, will be scheduled the week of June 16-20. MHS Graduation remains as scheduled, June 6, 2014.

PERSEVERANCE is our word of 2014

Students are learning that perseverance is about working hard and never giving up, even when things are difficult. We know that every student learns differently and that some things come easy while other things are more challenging. We believe that if students show a willingness to persevere- sticking with a problem and refusing to quit- that they will become lifelong learners who think deeply and solve problems. Our teachers are capturing students who are persevering in their classrooms and their pictures are going on our 'Perseverance in Action’ wall in the cafeteria. It is inspiring to see the grit and character of these scholars!

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.
