"Roos Against the Flu" was a big success!

"Roos Against the Flu” shot clinic was a huge success! We would like to send a shout out to the Parker County Hospital District (PCHD)! Their nursing staff partnered with Sheila Carter, WISD Nursing Coordinator, to administer 796 flu shots to our students, staff, and community members.

Book Spine Poetry

Students recently visited the NGC library and created poetry based solely off of titles found on the spines of books. The activity was called "Book Spine Poetry" and it allowed students to be creative with poetry. They had to have a subject/title and explain their thoughts behind the titles they chose to use. At the end of the period, students recited their poetry to their classmates.
