CAPS FOR THE CURE
Student Council will be putting on our annual Caps for the Cure Fundraiser. We ask that students bring in a dollar donation. Give the donation to their homeroom teacher – Thursday, April 18. In exchange for the donation, students will be allowed to wear a hat, showing their support.
The next Zero Waste Lunch is coming up on Thursday, April 18!
The Wyoming Primary School Zero Waste Lunch Program helped reduce our lunch waste substantially last year. This year Wyoming Middle School is joining the challenge. Studies show that regular waste-free lunch challenges change behavior throughout the year and this has proved true in Wyoming! Students think more about eating all of their food or taking home leftovers to eat later; and parents and students pack lunches in reusable (rather than disposable) packaging more often.
What can you do to help your child prepare for a Zero Waste Lunch? Encourage your child to remember the four R’s of Reduce, Reuse, Recycle and Rot.
It is easier for your student to control how much waste they produce if they pack lunch:
Reduce: They can reduce food and packaging waste by only packing the foods they will actually eat in amounts they can finish. Lunch time is limited! Pack fresh food (rather than prepackaged items).
Reuse: Pack lunch in reusable containers instead of plastic baggies; use a lunchbox instead of a brown bag. Choose a reusable bottle for drinks. Pack utensils and a cloth napkin from home instead of disposables.
Recycle: If the food item must be sent in packaging, please try to make sure it is recyclable.
Rot: We compost at each of our primary schools. There is a container that students can put unfinished fruit and clean (no dressing) veggies in. Kids can send their organic waste back to the earth through composting.
Your child can incorporate the four R’s when buying lunch at school: remind them to select foods they will eat and food with minimal packaging; recycle water bottles, juice and milk cartons (after pouring out leftover liquids); and compost organic scraps!
The kids are always up for the challenge of setting a new record for reduced lunch waste. If you can, please help them pack their lunch on Thursday, April 18, in reusable containers. Ask your kids what they will actually eat in their lunch—and remind them to eat it all or bring home leftovers! (And please try to integrate these habits every day!)
Wyoming students are blazing the trails in learning, improving, and creating greener habits!
Thank You For Your Help!
Wyoming City Schools and the PSA Green Team
We love our staff at WMS! To show our appreciation last year, we raised enough money to cater a big taco lunch “fiesta.” Something as simple as this made a huge impact. The staff was incredibly appreciative and are still talking about it! Many of them have asked if it’s happening again Let’s do it! Feel no obligation, but if you are looking for a way to love on our staff, we would love to raise enough money to surprise them with another fiesta. The event will be Thursday, May 9.
If you would like to pitch in, send cash or a check (made out to Wyoming Middle School) in an envelope marked FIESTA to the WMS office by May 3rd. You can also contribute to a PayPal Account created just for this below.
LOST & FOUND
Be sure to stop by and look at Lost & Found. We have many jackets and lunchboxes.
The Wheel-A-Thon is this weekend!
The annual May Fete Wheel-A-Thon fundraiser for the Wyoming Parent School Association will be held in the Hilltop neighborhood 1-4 p.m. Sunday, April 14. Students in kindergarten through 5th grade are invited to participate.
Children may cycle, scooter, or skate a loop (one mile for bikes, smaller for other wheels) that begins and ends in the cul-de-sac at the intersection of Tohatchi and Abilene Trails (see map below). All kids must wear helmets and parents must accompany students in grades K-2 on the course. Wyoming Police will be on hand with extra helmets, and the route will be closed to traffic for the duration of the event. Jim’s Bike Shop, located at 8015 Plainfield Road in Deer Park, will once again sponsor a bike maintenance tent at the cul-de-sac. In the event of forecasted rain, the Wheel-A-Thon will be rescheduled for Sunday, April 28, 1-4 p.m.
Fifth graders may pick up a registration packet in the Wyoming Middle School front office. Please encourage your children to obtain sponsors for their ride – prizes are awarded for the most laps ridden and most money raised per grade and overall. Winners are announced at the May Fete Coronation ceremony in the Fine Arts Center Ballroom. Simply bring the registration packet, your child, and his/her wheels to the cul-de-sac at the intersection of Tohatchi and Abilene Trails on the afternoon of April 14 and get moving!
