10/15/12 Updates

Wiley Happenings:

  • Last week Mrs. Jones was selected as one of 10 teachers to travel on a winter adventure to Yellowstone with the NC Museum of Science! We can't wait to learn with her as she travels. Congratulations Mrs. Jones!
  • Mrs. Swartz's class participated in a Skype session with two fire dogs (and their human) about Fire Safety.
  • The Wiley Jellybeans family skate night was a blast. We had a great turn out and I got to be in the middle of the Hokey Pokey circle- such a fun Saturday evening!
  • The fifth graders took their first field trip of the year. They were welcomed by scientists at the NC Museum of Science into their learning lab. I have loved watching the students rave about it on their fifth grade Edmodo group!
