In conjunction with Whigham’s annual Rattlesnake Roundup, Yarbrough’s Live Reptile Instructional Program will be visiting our school on Friday, Jan. 27 at 8:30. The cost is $2.00 per student.
Report cards for the 2nd 9 weeks went home yesterday. Please sign and return.
Just a reminder that the reading and spelling tests for Click, Clack, Moo: Cows That Type are scheduled for this Thursday, Jan. 12. Please remember to have your student read aloud their story each time before the test. This improves reading fluency and comprehension.
Also, this 9 weeks will be focusing on opinion writing. We will start with the very basics, since most kids don’t even know what an opinion really means.
The Whigham School Christmas Program is scheduled for Friday, Dec. 16 at 9:00 in the gym. We encourage all parents to attend this wonderful program which has become a tradition at our school. This is also an early release day at school. Since we will not be doing any academic work on this day, students will not need to bring their bookbags. They are encouraged to wear blue jeans, a red, white, or green shirt, and a Santa hat on the day of the program. Students may leave school early with their parents after the program, but they must be signed out from their homeroom teacher’s class.
Merry Christmas!!!! No homework in reading or math next week (Dec. 12-16).
Friday, December 16 will be a half day for students. Students should be picked up by 11:30 am. Merry Christmas!

If you can, please send in small fabric swatches for a project we will begin working on. Perhaps 12×12 pieces or a yard or so. The more variety we have, the better our projects will be! Please send these in by Friday, December 9.
Thanks so much!
