WRE parents, please return your PTO sign-up forms by this Friday, August 29. There are many ways to help, and ALL are appreciated!

FBLA ADOPT-A-HIGHWAY is scheduled for Saturday, August 30 at 11:00 am.  We will have our semiannual community service project ADOPT-A-HIGHWAY.  Pizza will be served after the event in Commons Area.

Attention Wood River Residents!  The Booster Club is looking for volunteers to help at Husker Harvest Days again this year.  Many people are needed for this incredible fund raising event.  Please click here to sign up for available days/times at Husker Harvest Days in September!
Attention music students!  There is an opportunity for all High School Band, Choir or Show Choir students to attend a Leadership Clinic. It takes place at GINW from 9am-3pm on Wednesday, Sept 3. Students choosing to attend will be excused from school that day. We will spend the day working on leadership skills specifically geared towards musicianship. The cost is $30 for registration. We will eat Valentino's buffet for lunch, and we ask that students bring at least $10 on the day of the event. If interested, please read the handout, sign and date the bottom, return to the Music Department along with your registration fee.  Click here for the registration form...questions? email sdaws@wrrsd.org or bwiebebrown@wrrsd.org

The local Punt, Pass, and Kick contest will be held Saturday September 13, at 10:00am on the Wood River HS football field. 
Anyone that is still wanting to register their child in the After School Program please contact Samantha Hahn directly by email or phone: shahn@wrrsd.org or (308) 583-2249.  Please note that your child cannot start attending the After School Program until both the registration form and handbook form have been filled out and returned to either the elementary or the high school.  The After School Program is a grant funded program, thanks in large part to the Heartland United Way and the Wood River Community Centennial Foundation.  Without those contributors, the program would not be offered to our district families. A big THANK YOU goes out to those organizations!
 
As the new school year gets into full swing, the Music Department would like to share a few important items with students and parents.  Please use the following links to review and sign the handbooks, and also to review the schedules for the upcoming year.

MIDDLE SCHOOL FUNDRAISER - Attention Wood River patrons!  Thanks for your efforts in helping with the collection of box tops and bar codes.  You were able to make a difference in providing additional learning experiences for our Middle School students.  We are asking again for your help and support.  We will be sending in Box Tops for Education at the end of October, so if you have anything collected over the summer, make sure you get it to Mrs. Mead or the office.  Thanks for your help.  You do make a difference!!  The following items listed are what we are collecting this year, which can be turned in for money or educational equipment.

1.     General Mills Box Tops for Education

2.     Best Choice bar codes

3.     Tyson Foods Project A+ Label

4.     Land O Lakes milk, chocolate milk, and orange juice gallon caps with the “Save Five for Schools” sticker on it

5.     Campbell Soup (bar code and Campbell Soup Kid)

The PTO would like to thank everyone for collecting Box Tops and Campbell's labels!  Because of your efforts, the PTO was able to purchase several new items for the students to enjoy during recess time.  Students will have access to new jump ropes, basketballs, footballs, soccer balls, kick balls, and also a ball cart to store them on!  Your contribution really does help, so please keep sending those Box Tops & Campbell's labels in!
