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! 

    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 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!
    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!

    Besides the usual acknowledgment of COURAGE Awards, Library Reading Challenges, T-Time Drawing winners, and Highest Average Daily Attendance recognitions, our Winograd CUBS had even more to celebrate.
