WSMA (Wyoming School Music Association)

It’s time to sell Chip Wheelies for WSMA! WSMA (Wyoming School Music Association) supports the music programs in our schools from Kindergarten through High School. If you have an hour or two to volunteer, we can use your help. WSMA sells Graeter’s Chip Wheelies at home football games and all the school concerts. These ice cream sandwiches are a huge favorite with the kids (and adults). It’s easy!! We handle the ordering and delivery of Chip Wheelies to a special freezer at the High School. We’ll supply you with signage, a cash box, and instructions. It’s a short time commitment. If you have younger kids who want to attend the football game, you’ll have a good excuse for being there. Concert sales only take about an hour of time. If you are interested in volunteering, the link is: http://www.signupgenius.com/go/30e0949a5aa2ea75-chip1

Chip Wheelie Sales 2017-18

A fun, easy way to support Wyoming Schools! Most events only take about an hour and raise over $200 per event for the Wyoming School Music Association. WSMA buys instruments, music and other much-needed materials for the music program.Last year alone, chip wheelie sales raised over $6000 to improve our students’ music experience! After you sign up, you’ll receive additional information the week of your event. Thanks for volunteering!

Students in preschool – 6th grade are limited to two ala carte snacks and one ala carte beverage per day. Jr. High and Sr. High students do not have any item or ala carte spending limits on their meal account. If you would like to place restrictions on your child’s meal account or remove the two ala carte items per day restriction from your preschool–6th grade student’s meal account, this form must be completed and returned to school. Please note this restriction will carry over to future school years unless a request in writing is received to remove the restriction.

Ala Carte Purchases are not to exceed $________ per Day Week Month

Do not limit my elementary or preschool student’s ala carte purchases.

=====================================================================================================================

MEAL & CHARGE RESTRICTIONS – Unless specified below, Nutrition Services will approve meal charges and will provide a school meal when students do not have a packed meal from home or the funds to pay for a school meal, as Nutrition Services believes that the child will otherwise not receive a meal unless one is provided by Nutrition Services.

To place a note on your child’s account that restricts meal charges, this form must be completed. When this restriction is placed on your child’s account, Nutrition Services will not provide a meal for your child when there are no funds on the account and you will need to make other arrangements to feed your child. To approve any meal charges after this restriction is in place, you must notify the kitchen. Please note this restriction will carry over to future school years unless a written request is received to remove it.

By checking the following boxes, I am requesting that Nutrition Services refuse to serve my child:

Breakfast Lunch Milk Absolutely No Charges on my child’s account.

I understand and agree with the following:
* Unless there are funds on the account, I understand that my child will not be offered a school lunch, after this form is submitted and the restriction is in place. I agree it is my responsibility to notify the kitchen to lift the restriction, if necessary.

* I understand that my child could take a meal before a Nutrition Services employee is able to intervene. If this occurs, I agree to pay this meal charge, as the food cannot be re-served and will result in a loss to the school lunch program.*

*Please help to prevent avoidable charges by frequently checking your child’s meal account balance and preparing your child to make alternate plans when there are no funds or a packed meal from home.

**NOTE – Meal account restrictions are subject to approval by Nutrition Services before your child’s account will be restricted. To confirm that Nutrition Services acts in accordance with your intentions, contact Sarah Renz at (513) 831-5030 for assistance.

This form must be signed and returned to: Nutrition Services Department

SOLAR ECLIPSE – MONDAY, AUGUST 21

2017 Solar Eclipse Information and School Plan

The 2017 Eclipse Across America will happen on Monday, August 21. Locally, the eclipse will begin after lunch and last about two hours. As the moon passes in front of the sun, skies will gradually begin to darken. Here in Wyoming, the near total eclipse (with 91% coverage expected) will take place at 2:29 p.m. and is expected to last about 2 minutes. After that the sky will gradually fill with more light, as the moon moves out of the path of the sun.
Student safety is the number one priority at Wyoming City Schools. It is never safe to look directly at the sun’s rays, even if the sun is partly obscured. When experiencing a partial eclipse, eclipse glasses or solar viewers must be worn at all times when facing the sun. There are also alternate methods for indirectly experiencing an eclipse. NASA (https://eclipse2017.nasa.gov/safety) is an excellent source for more safety and viewing information. Parents are encouraged to discuss the hazards of viewing a solar eclipse without proper eye wear with students of all ages and instruct students not to view the eclipse on their way home from school.

Though Wyoming is not in the Path of Totality, Wyoming City Schools are planning to commemorate this historic, scientific event where aligned with curriculum in the following ways:
• All students at Wyoming Primary Schools will participate in eclipse-themed lessons and activities. Additionally, PM kindergarten, first, and second grade students will watch NASA’s Eclipse LiveStream for a portion of the eclipse. Third and fourth grade students will be provided with ISO 12312-2 compliant eclipse glasses and be given the opportunity to leave the building for a portion of the eclipse. Third and fourth grade parents must return the permission slip found here to allow your student to participate in the outdoor portion of events. Students who are not permitted to proceed outside will have an opportunity to view the Eclipse LiveStream indoors.
• Wyoming Middle School students will all use ISO 12312-2 compliant eclipse glasses and be given the opportunity to leave the building for a portion of the eclipse. Additionally, students in seventh and eighth grade will be assembling indirect box eclipse viewers in science classes. For a portion of the eclipse, seventh and eighth graders will proceed outside with ISO 12312-2 compliant eclipse glasses and their indirect viewers. Parents of seventh and eighth grade students may opt out of allowing their student to go outside during the eclipse by returning this form to the middle school front office.
• At Wyoming High School, Earth Space students will be provided ISO 12312-2 compliant eclipse glasses and proceed outside for a portion of the eclipse. All other students will be provided an opportunity to view NASA’s Eclipse LiveStream indoors for a portion of the eclipse. Parents of students in Earth Space courses may opt out of allowing their student to go outside during the eclipse by returning this form to the high school front office.
Wyoming City School District is very excited to share this memorable, teachable moment with our students.

OUR FIRST DAY AT WMS

Wyoming Middle School Families:

We had an absolutely wonderful first day of school!  Our teachers and staff greeted the children with excitement and students were eager to meet their teacher and see their friends.  We welcomed our 5th grade members to our community and making WMS their new school.

Many people and groups contributed to a successful opening of school! I would be remiss if I did not take a moment to thank them.  Thank you to our students who came with smiles and families that lovingly toted school supplies.  Thanks to our custodians, Mary Wilson and Bruce Edgecomb, for making our school clean and ready for students.  Thank you to our teachers and staff that prepared their classrooms and school to welcome our students.  Thank you Mrs. Warmack and Mrs. Strom, our administrative assistants, for doing just about anything we need.  The PAC team was instrumental in starting us off on the right track with schedule pick up and beautiful ferns outside the entrance.
