Wonderland’s 8th Annual Spelling Bee is underway! 4th and 5th grade students will correctly spell as many words as they can in hopes of becoming the one student to represent our school at the Scripps Regional Spelling Bee on February 8th.
Individual classroom bees will be held in all 4th and 5th grade classrooms, and the 1st and 2nd place winners from each classroom will participate in a run-off bee in front of the entire student body at 1pm on Monday, December 4th. Lower grade level teachers have been encouraged to conduct a spelling bee in their classrooms.
To prepare for the bee, students are encouraged to study the list of words provided to their teacher. The schoolwide bee will not quiz on words below the 4th grade level.
Support Wonderland’s very own student-run and student-written school newspaper! The Coyote Howler is available, free of charge, to every student. Be a part of the 2014-2015 keepsake issues by purchasing ad space or sending a special note to a student. (A great surprise from a loving parent or relative!)
The Halloween Team is hard at work fabricating ghoulish creations for Wonderland’s Annual Haunted House. Supplies are urgently needed. Please check the list to see what items you may have or can contribute.
PARTY BOOK is coming! Here is what you need to know:
What, exactly, is a “Party Book”?
The Wonderland Party Book is a fundraiser for Friends of Wonderland. FOW’s efforts each year ensure that our school has the resources needed to fund essential school programs that are not part of the LAUSD budget. This includes teacher’s aides in every room; cutting edge instructional technologies; professional development for teachers; instructors and materials for art, music, PE, Way of Council, library, and gardening programs.
I don’t get it. What is the “Party Book”, then?
It’s PARTIES! Wonderland families generously offer to host or sponsor parties throughout the school year. Wonderland students and their parents pay to attend the parties, and ALL the proceeds go to help FOW make a difference in your kids’ education.
Who are the parties for?
Anyone and everyone — even people outside of the Wonderland Community. Some parties will be family-oriented, some especially for kids and others for adults. Invite your friends!
Do I have to host a party alone?
Not at all. Get together with friends to sponsor or host a party.
Are my contributions as a Host or a Sponsor tax deductible? And if I pay to attend a party is that tax deductible too?
YES and YES!
What kinds of parties are in the Party Book?
There should be something for everyone. Parties can include anything from pizza parties, kids’ activities like skateboarding and art, parents’ nights out at restaurants around L.A,. private events and concerts hosted in the homes of Wonderland families and much more!!! Exact details and parties will be announced in January. Stay tuned.
What do I do if I have a great idea for a party and want to host or sponsor?
We welcome all ideas! Please email the Party Book Co-Chairs, Michelle Carlson and Stephanie Ligorner at firstname.lastname@example.org and let them know if you would like to host a party or if you are interested in joining our committee.
There are so many fun ways to get involved in your child’s Wonderland experience. Kids just love it when their parents are on campus, helping out.
