Story Elements 3rd Grade ELA Classes Complete Reading Project

Students in Mrs. Bennett and Mrs. L. Wright's ELA class read a book of their choice and filled out a story elements booklet.  They had the option to do some type of presentation item (tri-board, poster, shoebox, or any other creative way to show off their book).  Student work was displayed in the media center at WCES.  Great job, students!

WCES is participating in a program called Anchored4Life.  The Anchored4Life Club is a peer-to-peer club to connect youth while building transition and resiliency skills. The club provides opportunities for peers to enhance social skills, learn leadership skills, build character, improve self-esteem, and integrate into their community. Youth will learn these transition and resiliency skills using the Club features. 

WCES has chosen five students to serve as Team Leaders.  They are Ja’Niya Bacon, Garrett Brooks, Khloe Cunningham, Easten Hall, and Gamble Montgomery.  These students meet once a month to teach skill lessons to students.  Each classroom as two crew members.  Crew members are responsible for helping new students in their classroom.  WCES is looking forward to implementing this program into their school.
