WSP Celebrates Read Across America Day! Students lined the halls at Ware Shoals Primary School and spent time reading independently - just for fun! "The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you'll go!" - Dr. Seuss

Safety is our top priority. Keeping children safe from offensive, vulgar content on the internet is a big challenge. We recently learned of inappropriate content that is being embedded into YouTube videos that seem, on the surface, to be appropriate for children. For that reason, we are removing access to YouTube from student devices today.

These students just finished reading a novel about the Salem Witch Trials and were put into groups and assigned topics that might be considered modern day witch hunts. The topics were: attitudes toward Japanese Americans after Pearl Harbor / attitudes toward Muslin Americans after 9/11 / attitudes toward communists during the cold war [McCarthyism]/ attitudes towards HIV/AIDS victims in the late 1980s. This is the first time these students have done anything like this and were very nervous...they did a great job!

Dear WSSD 51 Parents, Valentine’s Day is Thursday, and we want to inform you that schools may not accept deliveries of flowers, balloons, candy, etc. We can, however, provide an alternative. If you wish to purchase flowers, balloons, etc. for your child, the local florist can send a gift card to the school, notifying him or her to stop by the shop to pick up a special surprise. Gift cards can be distributed at school without disruption to the learning process and in a discreet way so as not to embarrass children who do not receive them. Occasional deliveries to the school during the year are allowed, but we do not allow balloons or flowers in glass vases on the buses at any time. If you choose to send your child something of this type for his/her birthday, please provide a ride home that day if your child usually rides a bus. Thanks for your cooperation! Sincerely, Dr. Fay Sprouse Superintendent
