It is always fun to visit the Wayne Book Fair! This year the theme was fairy tales and outside of the library was a castle wall d├ęcor. The students enjoyed seeing what new books are out. Many were excited to see some of their favorite series have new titles to read.

Our class earns points for outstanding teamwork. After collecting the total points needed, we enjoy a break that is voted on by the students. I was thrilled the students wanted to be together outside for our recent break. It was so wonderful to enjoy the outdoors while the weather is still warm. The girls were much more cooperative for pictures while the boys had a serious game of soccer or football going on and only allowed me to take action photos.

PBIS

Our school follows the PBIS (Positive Behavior Intervention Systems) to promote good behavior in our school. Our year kicked off with a PBIS celebration where expected school behaviors were discussed by Dr. DeLaMar. Grace is sharing her ideas of how to be a WOW students at Wayne! Students are given WOW tickets when seen following Wayne's Way..."We are respectful, responsible, and resourceful." Our first prize opportunity was an extra recess if your WOW ticket was pulled.
