  • Mr. Oliver’s Last HurROAR! June 27, 2019- The last week of school is always a very fast one, with field trips, celebrations, and goodbyes, not to mention report card preparation and arrangements for next year occupying our minds.

  • 5 Things to ROAR About – June 7 June 7, 2019- Have you ever had an argument with a 4 year old? How about one that isn’t yours?

  • 5 Things to ROAR About – May 31 May 31, 2019-   Ms. Edlund and her class went to Playland last week, but it was not all play and fun.

They reported a multitude of gears,... Read more »
  • 5 Things to ROAR About – May 17, 2019 May 17, 2019- It has been a week where I couldn’t get away from science. Thankfully, I love science.

They’re also looking at the differences between their plot (grown from seed) and Mrs. O’Byrne’s class plot (grown from... Read more »

  • 5 Things to ROAR About – April 26 April 26, 2019- Well, it has been another great week of learning, and community building at WLE. Aaaaaaaah! Thud! Nope. Not thud. I don’t know what sound one makes when landing in 18 inches of freshly poured wood chips, but I’ll know on Monday, as our freshly replaced playground base was installed over the last week and is...

  • 5 Things to ROAR About – April 18 April 18, 2019- We had a great time learning some tennis this week. Thanks to the support of the PAC,  we had Robbie from TennisXL in to do lessons with every class. Students worked on stance, grip, swing, reflexes and control. As with anything, some of us found it easy, and some found it a challenge. I don’t... Read more »
