School district September review

Support Local Journalism


Winters Elementary Schools: Each September at Winters Elementary, we spend time talking with students and staff about the importance of school safety, and what to do during different types of emergencies. The best way to prepare for an emergency is to practice, and each week we practice a different drill. It can sometimes be scary for young children to prepare for these drills, and they often have lots of questions. Regardless of the situation, we want students to remember that the most important thing to do during an emergency is to listen to the adults that are there to keep them safe and to follow their directions. During September, we are also focusing on service. September is “Childhood Cancer Awareness Month” and we are collecting Pennies for Patients for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society until Oct. 5. On Friday, Sept. 28, students and staff wore “Colors for Cancer” to show their support: purple for all cancers, pink for breast cancer, gold for childhood cancer, and green in honor of one of our former students who was diagnosed with cancer this summer. At recess on Sept 28, DJ Barnett played music and we walked laps to show our solidarity. Families that would like to donate to “Team Tyson” directly may do so at Waggoner, Rominger, Winters Middle School or at the Yolo Federal Credit Union. Winters Middle School: At Winters Middle School Family Conferences were held during the week of Sept. 24. Chromebooks have been checked out to almost all students, and every student who has a chromebook has had a parent or guardian attend chromebook orientation training. We are continuing with Parent Institute for Quality Education (PIQE) classes with approximately 30 parent/guardians attending. PIQE is a great program that helps families have conversations with their students about being successful in school and considering post-secondary options. The last class is Wednesday, Oct. 24. A big thanks to Thaddeus and Moyra Barsotti and Farm Fresh to You for donating and delivering fresh produce for all our students to eat and enjoy at first break everyday. Volleyball is underway with basketball around the corner. Our next dance is Friday, Oct. 5 with all proceeds to benefit a Winters family. Winters High School: September is such a wonderful month; the weather is a bit cooler and students and staff are easing into the fall season. We were able to officially open our new bleachers and lights for our stadium project, and it opened to a packed house and a Warrior Win. Last month we were also able to invite our parents in to meet teachers and hear about the wonderful things happening in our classrooms. The highlight so far has to be the freshmen class trip to see “To Kill A Mockingbird,” performed live at the Woodland Opera House. It was a fantastic show and a great opportunity to expose our entire freshman class to the art of theater. As September drew to a close, there was no better way to end it than with our Homecoming Week, filled with fun, excitement and friendly competition. We hope you all had an opportunity to come out and celebrate Homecoming and Winters High School.]]>
