Friendly Faces at WDE!

November 3, 2022

Every morning at WDE, students are greeted with friendly faces opening the car doors.  One of those friendly faces is a teacher, Mr. James Barnhouse. He can often be heard calling students by name and reminding them, “It’s going to be a great day at WDE!”  One parent recently shared, “There's nothing like a warm welcome to ease the tension of a hectic morning, or maybe the anxiety of a test that lies ahead that day. Kudos to you Mr. Barnhouse! Your positive, uplifting, personalized communication with my kiddos starts not only their day off with a smile, but it starts this Mama's day off with a smile too. Thank you!” We are so thankful to have Mr. Barnhouse at WDE.

MSE students focused on Teamwork during their most recent HOUSE meeting.  All 5 HOUSES worked to complete tasks that require teamwork to accomplish.  The older students also learned Leadership skills by helping the younger ones complete the task.  The HOUSE system helps to create a culture of belonging and support among our students.

 

Superintendent Hughes visited Dune Lakes Elementary School on Friday.  He stopped by for a visit as DLE wrapped up their Red Ribbon Week.  DLE celebrated being drug free by wearing jerseys on Fan Friday.

"Greeking Out" at DLE

4th and 5th grade students in Mrs. Flowers’ class at Dune Lakes Elementary School ended their Ancient Greece Unit with a “Greeking Out” party. Throughout the course of the unit, students learned about the history, architecture, people, and lifestyles of Ancient Greece through various research projects and hands-on engineering activities. At the party, students performed skits about Ancient Greece and a guest chef taught students how to make the Greek dish, hummus.
