Practice, practice, practice....Winograd's representatives in the All-City Honor Band have been doing a lot of that!  The group gathered for a quick picture the morning of January 21st before stepping on to the bus to go to the Union Colony Civic Center to rehearse for their performance.  
 
The concert began at 7 p.m. and included All-City honorees from area Middle and High Schools.  Our 20 CUBS (out of 100 total Middle School participants,) represented us with pride!

Anti-Bully Parade

 Anti Bully 1

 
All Winograd CUBS big and small gathered on the Northridge High School practice field to work together to stomp out bullying.  

The CUBS assembled into their Caring CUBS Connect groups.  They then marched around the field holding banners they had created earlier this month.  The banners encouraged alternatives to bullying and for all to take a stand and lend a hand against bullies, and were displayed throughout the field. 

An anonymous donor purchased a T-Shirt for every student and staff member at the school.  The T-shirts said “Winograd’s Defensive Line…The Bullying Stops Here,” on the front, with the student’s grade level displayed on the back.

Caring CUBS Connect
C3 is In The House!
All Winograd students and faculty engaged in our monthly Caring CUBS Connect, (C3) activity on Wednesday morning, September 10th.  This month we focused on "Compassion."  Many small groups watched a video about random acts of kindness and paying it forward.  They then used the rest of their time to set goals for the year, both in school and at home.  
Here are some pictures of our time together.
