Dear Waverly Families,
Boosterthon Fun Run- If you haven’t registered your child, it’s not too late! And then, help get pledges!
Register your child on funrun.com, using our school’s registration code 868-852 or by searching for our school name. Our goal is to raise $20,000 for our audio/ visual system! Please support us by asking friends and family to pledge your child for the Fun Run. (Remember, students will run 30-35 laps.)
Parents, you may be asking yourself, “What’s the best way to get a pledge?” Answer: STUDENT STAR VIDEO! Parents who send a Student Star video to friends and family raise, on average, $100 more than those who don’t. It’s the EASIEST and BEST way to ask for a pledge, plus this hilarious video will have your friends and family in stitches. Simply log in to FUNRUN.COM, click the “Create Student Star Video” button, upload a photo of your child, and off you go! Remember, all students MUST wear sneakers on Wednesday!
Waverly is beautified!
This is a hearty thank you to all Waverly families who participated in “Beautification Day” on Sunday, May 6th. The garden looks wonderful! I would like to especially thank members of the PTA Wellness Committee who organized the event. I’d encourage you to stop by the garden and take a look!
Several Waverly classes were treated to a visit from the EHS Going Green Club. They explored recycling and even planted beans hydroponically (without soil). We’d like to extend our thanks to Ms. Jean Marie Woods and all of the Going Green Club members for visiting us!
Information about the school budget can be found below. Polls will be open TOMORROW from 6 a.m. – 9 p.m.
Voting will take place at EMS. Don’t forget to have your children drop off their ballot as well! (Ballots do not come back to school.)
