October COURAGE Assembly
We had a lot to celebrate during our October COURAGE Assembly. We recognized Mr. Bedingfield, (one of our favorite volunteers,) because it was his 90th Birthday and because he means so much to us.
We also recognized our Middle School student athletes, students who showed "Optimism" this month, and we enjoyed the performance from the 7th & 8th grade choir.
Thursday the 16th was also United Way Pajama Day. Students and staff who donated $1.00 to United Way were allowed to wear Pajamas all day. It's fun to be a CUB!
Dig Pink Night
Winograd Volleyball players hosted their last regular season game on Tuesday, October 7, 2014 wearing their new "Dig Pink" shirts. The crowd wore pink and the game served as a fundraiser for Breast Cancer Awareness.
Head Coach Jana Flores is a Breast Cancer survivor. The team took the opportunity to celebrate her recovery, (as well as team mom Amy Herold's) by presenting them with pink roses and personal notes.
The money raised from gate sales, donations and water purchases was donated to the North Colorado Medical Center Breast Center.
Middle School Sports
In A League of our OWN!
The Cross Country team traveled to Loveland on Wednesday, October 8, 2014 to compete in the Cross Country Finals. They had a great season with a 1st place win for the girls, and a 2nd place finish for the boys in the Andy Meyers Invitational last week.
The Swim Team has completed their season.
WE ARE PROUD OF OUR CUBS!
September COURAGE Assembly
T-Time Reading, TCAP, & Compassion Awards
So Much to CELEBRATE!
Our September COURAGE Assembly found the CUBS celebrating our many achievements. A drawing was held to choose two students from each grade who had turned in their T-Time reading slips. These students were then allowed to pick out a new book to add to their collection.
Bronze awards were given to students who improved in at least one proficiency level during our spring TCAP testing. Silver awards were given to students who scored at least Proficient in all of their content areas. Gold awards were given to students who scored all Advanced on their three tests. And, our school had five 4th graders who received the Platinum award for earning a perfect score on one or more sections of the test.
Two students from each class were awarded Compassion Awards. And, our Intermediate and Advanced Orchestra helped close the assembly with our school song.
It was a great time of
celebration for our school!
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.
Ms. Prewett's class watches the video in the library using
one of our new Promethean Boards.
Ms. Niccoli's group takes a break from goal-setting
to pose for a picture.

First COURAGE Assembly
Our CUBS are in a League of our OWN!
We kicked off the 2014-215 year with an action packed COURAGE Assembly. The entire school was witness to an amazing display of school spirit and unity.
We engaged in our usual COURAGE Assembly traditions celebrating our COURAGE Award winners, and singing the school song with the band. And, we had our fundraiser kick-off, a skit about anti-bullying, and a special surprise of our own version of the ALS Benefit Ice Bucket Challenge.
Mrs. Warden, Ms. Watson & Mrs. Sage all accepted the challenge first. They then encouraged Mr. Pell, Ms. Niccoli & Ms. Bressler to join them. Mrs. Hughes-Coffman surprised the crowd by joining Mr. Pell in his "pond."
Winograd CUBS are clearly in a League of our OWN!
