Over forty volunteers and their students attended. Over a third of them were new volunteers!
Your PTO provided pizza and lemonade. After dinner, the students went down the hall to watch Bill Nye, Science Guy with a couple teachers.
A Watch DOGS introduction video was shown.
Principal Mytych offered an overview of the program and the daily routines.
Coordinator McKay offered some insights from a volunteer perspective, fielded a few questions from new volunteers, explained some new additions to the program including pictures of all Watch DOGS with their Watch Pup, a yearbook page, and the making of Field Day into a Watch DOGS signature event with Watch DOGS running the games so teachers and other parent volunteers can stay with their classes through the whole event.
Our PTO provided Watch DOGS merchandise prizes for a raffle - each Watch DOGS volunteer who signed up for two or more days during the kickoff was entered into the drawing.
Lots of interest!
Looking for a great year of Watch DOGS
The students of Room 20 are creating the town of Twentyville. This social studies project has the class plan and design all of the natural and human characteristics in a typical community. Students see their town evolve over time from simple farmland, to neighborhoods, and then eventually community buildings, stores, apartment buildings, and restaurants in the growing urban area. Careful decisions are made as the class decides the positive and negative consequences of a factory in their town and which laws are needed to keep them safe.
This is a highly engaging project for us. The creativity and problem-solving is evident with each new element added to our town.
You can follow our town's progress on Twitter #20ville2018

The W-W PTO also gave each teacher and staff member a small pot of flowers to help brighten their day, as they brighten the days for all of our students and families.
Thank you to OfficeDepot OfficeMax for the reusable bags, notebooks, and supplies for each of our classroom teachers.
A great start on the second Wednesday morning of the school year.
