Our Superman!

Mr Crain Superman PJ
The goal was to raise $5,000 during the jog-a-thon this year. If the kids were able to meet the goal, Mr. Crain said he would dress up in Superman footie pajamas for a school assembly. Unfortunately, the kids came up $400 short….they were heartbroken. But Superman did not dissappoint, Truth, Justice, and the American way prevailed!

He may not be THE Superman, but he’s OUR Superman!

Teacher Appreciation Week!

The Wascher PTA would like to say “Thank You” to all the fantastic teachers at Wascher that help our students achieve their fullest potential everyday.

This week is Teacher Appreciation week and we would like to ask everyone to take a couple extra minutes, find a teacher and let them know how important they are in the lives of our young people.  The time they commit on a daily basis to plan for their classes, investigate new ideas, instruct in and out of the classroom, share life lessons with and to simply care for each student helps mold and shape our children in extraordinary ways.

To help celebrate this week the members of the PTA will be providing breakfast treats (like muffins, bagels, fruit) for the teacher on Tuesday, May 7th, and dessert type goodies (such as cookies, brownies, cupcakes) for lunch on Thursday, May 9th.

If you are interested in helping in the celebration feel free to bring your treats to the school on either of those days.  Lets plan to fill the teachers room full!
