Family Art Night; May 18:
 Save the date for Family Art Extravaganza Thursday, May 18th 7pm-9pm!  This year Mrs. Banker has decided to combine Family Art Night and WRS School Wide Art show into one fun event.  There will be art activities in the all purpose room as well as artwork from EVERY STUDENT in the school displayed in the halls. Family and Friends all welcome; kids must have an adult with them.  Mrs. Banker will be collecting LARGE lids, such as this, to fill will with model magic and use beads for a mosaic station in the APR.  Please start saving similar lids of wet ones wipes or larger (nothing used for any products containing nuts) and send in with your child.  I will have a large bin outside the art studio to collect the items.  Thank you for your help.
