Career & Community Connections Class Visits Lincoln 3rd Graders!

Mrs. Lawless' 1st Hr. Career & Community Connections Class visited the 3rd grade classes of Mr. Brent Byers and Mr. Joel Nichols this past week. The WHS students led a lesson on "being thankful" with the young Patriots, followed by making turkey crafts with the students. A poignant seasonal activity, a poignant notion, year-round!

Immigration Reenactment @ Washington Elementary

Friday was the annual IMMIGRATION REENACTMENT at Washington Elementary. The 5th graders each school year...reenact the arrival of immigrants back in the day at Ellis Island in New York. From traveling on over-crowded boats, to not understanding the language upon arrival, and a myriad of other obstacles and concerns...very hands on way to understand that part of our history. Many even dress to that time era. Staff man different stations, from check-in after arriving in the harbor, medical exams, interviews, citizenship tests and in some cases, detainment.

TWIX over KIT KAT in Candy Bar Election @ Washington!

The 4th Graders at Washington Elementary, instructed by Bob Meyer, held their annual "Candy Bar Election" Friday and this year's contestants were of similar design and taste...it was TWIX vs KIT KAT. In the end, it was TWIX who came out on top with 70 votes, KIT KAT 53 votes. Three write-in votes were recorded as well, 1 for SNICKERS and 2 for REESES. The right and the left TWIX voters were too much for the KIT KAT folks to overcome. 

Youth Entrepreneurship Market Day @ WHS!

Mrs. Melissa Buchanan's "Youth Entrepreneurship Class" had their Market Day this week at WHS. After a lot of planning, the group went shopping on Monday and then on Wednesday, their pop-up businesses were setup and in action Wednesday during all "3" lunch periods. Profit reports are not in yet - suspect though there was more black than red on the post-day ledgers! The pics below are courtesy of WHS Yearbook Staff!
