The 5th graders at WDE showed their enthusiasm for the last Vocabulary Word Parade in which they will participate. Blaze D. said, “This is the best parade we’ve had, and it’s sad I won’t be in it next year.” Each student dressed to impress with his or her chosen, on grade level vocabulary word. Signs were created to show the word and definition. The students had a great time at their final parade.

In support of National Unity Day and National Bullying Prevention Month, the Braves TV crew painted rocks and wrote kind messages on them.  They hid the rocks throughout the school on October 25.  Students that find a rock can give it to someone to brighten their day, keep it, or hide it for someone else to find.  Or they can return it to the LMC for a candy prize.  At WHS, we believe KINDNESS ROCKS!
