5TH GRADE KINDNESS RETREAT

Dear Parents,

Wyoming Middle School is excited about the upcoming 5th grade Kindness Retreat that will be facilitated by Youth Frontiers, Inc.!

On the kindness retreat, the Youth Frontiers Staff will focus on how kindness makes a positive difference in our school and how unkind, bullying behaviors hurt others. This high-energy, interactive retreat is scheduled for Tuesday, February 25, 2020 for the 5th grade class and will be held in the middle school gymnasium.

An important part of the Kindness Retreat is the small group discussions that occur throughout the day. We are pleased that these small groups will be led by 8th graders from Wyoming Middle School. We believe it will be a wonderful thing to have our 8th graders mentoring younger students in this way. The 8th graders will be building leadership skills and our 5th graders will feel valued!!

Please visit youthfrontiers.org/kindness-retreat for more information on YF, to access great parent resources, and to watch a video about the Kindness Retreat. If you have questions about the retreat, please contact the guidance office at 206-7225.

Sincerely,

WMS Guidance

MESSAGE FROM OUR DISTRICT NURSE
With cold and flu season in full swing, it is a good time to review the Wyoming School District’s medication policy. All medications (prescription and over-the-counter) administered at school must have a written order from a physician. This includes medications such as cough drops, antacids, lip balm, and topical ointments or creams.
In addition to a written order from a physician, all medication must be in the original container in which it was dispensed by the pharmacist. Over-the-counter medication should be labeled with your child’s name on the package.
If your child needs medication during the school day, please have the physician complete the medication consent form, which can be found on the Wyoming School District’s website or may be picked up at your child’s school office. Please contact the school nurse if you have questions or if you would like to discuss specifics about your child’s medication.

A message from the Wyoming School Music Association:
The 7th ANNUAL Wyoming Winter Music Festival will be 7-10 p.m. Friday, Feb. 21 at the Wyoming Fine Arts Center
You don’t want to miss this unique WSMA fundraising event!
How it works: Gather at 7 p.m. at the Wyoming Fine Arts Center ballroom to grab a beverage and get your backstage pass for an evening of music by our talented high school performers. The Wyoming High School Brass Ensemble and the cast of The Addams Family kick the evening off with performances for all 120 guests together in the ballroom. Then, using your backstage pass, guests are broken into four groups and they travel from room to room in the Fine Arts Center listening to small group music performances of various genres: Broadway, Singer-Songwriter, Classical. And each room has musically-inspired dinner by the bite options (and beverages are available for the duration of the event). The guests gather back together at 9:30 p.m. for a rousing finale by the Wyoming High School Jazz Band, dessert, and After Party performances by two local bands.
It is a night you won’t forget; all-inclusive tickets are only $40 per person. Tickets are available at http://www.wyomingmusic.org
Register now as tickets are limited.
If you have never attended, you won’t want to miss this fun way to support Wyoming music. It is truly a celebration of the musical arts in our community!

Hello Cowboys! Believe it or not, it’s already time to start thinking about recruiting volunteers for PSA for the 2020-2021 school year!

Please consider completing the below volunteer interest form: https://wyomingpsa.wordpress.com/2020-2021-psa-volunteer-form/
If you have any questions about PSA for the 2020-2021 school year, please contact Wyoming PSA President-Elect Raquel Bevington at wpsa.president.elect@gmail.com
A Message from the 8th Grade Parent Advisory Council (PAC) Representatives
Eighth grade is an exciting year with many fun activities for your children and volunteer opportunities for you!

If you were in last year’s paper student directory you will be automatically added to this group. If you were not listed in the directory, please send an email to: wyoming2024parents@googlegroups.com to be added to sure you are kept up to date and your student is not left out. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to reach out to one of your PAC reps: Melanie Niklewski (513-560-2858 or theniklewskis@gmail.com) and Maria Seyerle (513-680-5400 or theseyerles@gmail.com).

Book Signing by Cincinnati author Melissa W. Hunter

2-4 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 22 at Book Blvd:
What She Lost by Melissa W. Hunter retells the story of the author’s grandmother, a young Polish woman whose family was swept into the chaos of murder of the Holocaust. Part memoir, part historical fiction, it is more than a description of atrocities of that era. What She Lost is a tale of resilience, of rebuilding a life and of rediscovering love. Melissa’s articles have been published on Kveller.com and LiteraryMama.com and her short stories have appeared in the Jewish Literary Journal.
Space is limited to 25. Sign up at: http://www.joinbookblvd.com/events or stop by the Book Blvd, 502 Wyoming Avenue, during public house 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Fridays and 10 a.m.-3 p.m. Saturdays.
