The WSD Needs Your Input to Help Shape the Next Five-Year Plan
The WSD is seeking input from all stakeholders – students, parents, employees and community members – to help shape the District’s next five-year Comprehensive School Improvement Plan (CSIP). Take a moment to view Dr. Cain's invitation to participate in the CSIP process.

The District has scheduled three community engagement meetings called Guiding Principles for our Schools (GPS), to help inform stakeholders and provide a platform for feedback to set positive goals, define priorities and determine standards for the students and schools in the WSD. 

Photo of GPS Meeting on Nov. 27, 2018
The first GPS meeting was held on November 27th and the focus was Teaching and Learning. Approximately 75 people attended that meeting which was streamed live on the WSD Facebook page for those who couldn't attend in person. You can view the PowerPoint Presentation shared in the meeting on the WSD website and we encourage everyone to take the time to weigh in on the future of the WSD by taking the CSIP Survey.

Please consider attending the remaining meetings, which will both be held at 7 p.m. at Timberland High School:

January 15 – Finances, Facilities, and Staffing
February 12 – Community, Culture, and Safety & Security

 
Mike McCann Earns International Certification
The Wentzville School District is proud to announce that Michael McCann, Technology Coach for the WSD, has achieved the distinction of becoming an ISTE Certified Educator. This recognition from the International Society for Technology in Education is awarded to educators who have successfully demonstrated competency in the ISTE Standards for Educators and recognizes those who demonstrate the effective use of technology for learning in meaningful and transformative ways. The certification was established earlier this year and McCann is one of only five educators in the state, and one of seven educators in the world to achieve this distinction. “We are excited for Mr. McCann’s accomplishment on becoming an ISTE Certified Educator,” said WSD Director of Technology Greg Lawrence. “To earn this international certification and recognition demonstrates Mr. McCann’s focus on innovative instruction and technology in the classroom, which will ultimately benefit our teachers and our students.”
 
 
Calvary Church Hosts Christmas Store for WSD Families
Timberland students helping with the WSD Holiday Assistance program at Cavalry Church
Each year, the WSD Holiday Assistance program provides support to hundreds of District families. Part of that program is partnerships with our local congregations. On December 8th, our friends at Calvary Church put on a Christmas Store for a dozen families from Heritage and Wentzville Middle Schools. The gifts at the store are donated by members of the congregation as well as WSD families and staff members from the participating schools. Invited families have an opportunity to shop and purchase gifts for their own children at deeply discounted prices. The thought is by having the families pay for their gifts (the most they can spend is $10 per child and they walk away with up to five gifts per child) it empowers parents and provides an opportunity for them to be invested in the process rather than simply receiving a handout. "We are extremely grateful to our church partners that assist our families this time of year," said Chief Communications Officer Mary LaPak. "They are a tremendous support system for our families year round, but this time of year is especially difficult for families who are struggling, so we are particularly grateful that every child has a little something special to call their own for the holidays." Members of the Timberland High School National Honor Society were also on hand to help wrap gifts at the Calvary Church event as well.

If you would like to help out and share a little cheer by adopting a family, please contact the WSD Community Relations Department at (636) 327-3800 ext. 20357 or email Kathy Delaquil for more information. #WSDcares

HHS Student Receives Excellent Rating at National Writing Competition
Holt senior Paige Pieper has earned an exceptional distinction at the semiannual National High School Journalism Convention, co-sponsored by the Journalism Education Association (JEA) and the National Scholastic Press Association (NSPA). She received an “Excellent” rating in the Editorial Writing category of the highly competitive JEA Write-off competition.

Each entry in the competition, which was held in Chicago last month, was judged by a minimum of two qualified experts in the field. “It was very competitive,” Holt journalism advisor Sydney Swanson said. “I helped judge a Caption Writing Write-off contest, and more than half of them received no award. Paige's category required her to go into a room, analyze three articles, receive a prompt and write an editorial in two hours.”

Prairie View Teacher Saves Student from Choking
Photo of Lauren Bradley and Shane
A scary moment for one class at Prairie View Elementary turned into a triumph of bravery and preparedness last month. Second grade teacher Lauren Bradley and her students were eating snacks during their read-aloud time on what was - up to that point - a typical day. But then one of the students stood up, his distress clear. “I ran over to him and asked if he was choking,” Bradley recalled. “He nodded yes, so I told him I was going to hit his back to try to get it out. Pounding on his back wasn’t loosening the obstruction at all, and he was still unable to breathe. I told him what I was going to do next might hurt, and I began to administer the Heimlich Maneuver on him.” Bradley had been trained in the Heimlich and knew what to do. “On the third attempt, thankfully, the popcorn became dislodged and he began breathing again.” While many may have panicked in this situation, Mrs. Bradley and Shane were focused and determined. “I’m so proud of Shane. He was incredibly brave during and after the whole thing. I’m proud of how my entire class handled it! They were so respectful and calm during a scary situation.” And Shane? Yes, he is eating popcorn again after taking a short break. #WSDcares #HEARToftheWSD

KSDK News aired a feature on Monday, December 3rd, in honor of Special Education Day about Heritage Primary teacher Stacey Rosemann, showing how she goes above beyond to help her students. More importantly to her, she helps her students help others, starting "Helping Hands," a way for kids and to bring in food and personal care items to assist their fellow students. If that wasn't enough, as the video explains, Rosemann's heart for her students is so large that she actually adopted one, who's now a cherished member of her family.

Hour of Code
Kids coding at WabashStudents across the Wentzville School District joined millions of other K-12 students learning computer code as part of Computer Science Education Week (December 3-9). "Hour of Code" is a global campaign designed to get students interested in computer science – the skill that programs our modern world.

Hour of Code offers web-based lessons in computer coding that are aimed at every age group. Schools held Hour of Code sessions, had guest speakers, and students have also been logging on at home. Some classes took advantage of the popularity of the video games “Fortnite” and “Minecraft” to teach coding, by having elementary students code characters in these games to dance or perform other tasks. “Coding and computer science careers are two of the most in-demand professions in our area,” said Dr. Karen Hill, WSD Director of Professional & Program Development. “It is imperative for our students to be exposed to coding, especially at a young age.”

Computer science develops students' computational and critical-thinking skills and shows them how to create, not simply use, new technologies. "It is essential that students are exposed to the field of computer science in our K-12 system, as it is foundational in transforming the way a student thinks about the world," said Hadi Partovi, founder and CEO of Code.org, a Seattle-based national nonprofit that works to expand access to computer science and increase participation by women and minorities.

Wentzville Middle Students Deliver Donations to Veterans at Salvation Army
Every year, students in Jerry Cannon's eighth grade class at Wentzville Middle start off the holiday season the right way - by helping others. For now the 10th year Cannon and his students held a donation drive in late November/early December for personal care items and clothing, and then personally delivered them on December 7 to the Salvation Army Harbor Light Center for veterans to use. It's the time of year when we remember to care for those who are less fortunate, and these students have already made a true positive impact this holiday season.

Duello's Break Into Business Club Pitches Ideas to Professionals
Duello Break Into Business ClubMember’s of Duello’s Break into Business Club presented their products before a “Shark Tank” panel at Berrey-Place Center last week. The young entrepreneurs pitched their business ideas and design prototypes to a panel that included a teacher, WSD Marketing Director, a manager from Yuppy Puppy and owner of Hole in One Embroidery. Duello teachers Megan Mertz and Megan Barnes are the advisors for the club, which inspires students to solve a real-world problem by designing a product. Students in the club, which is supported by Mastercard, carry the problem-solving through the entire process of creating, pricing, promoting, pitching and selling their product. The “sharks” provided positive and constructive feedback to the young entrepreneurs who will sell their products at the school’s Breakfast with Santa event this weekend. Products ranged from festive holiday treats to dog toys, and the winners of the Shark Tank event, Mason Huebner and Sean Kirk, designed a “Know Me Moji” pin where students can display how they are feeling without words. Mason and Sean shared that they will be donating a portion of their proceeds to a fellow student suffering from a rare viral illness. Mrs. Merz shared that she hopes this club will expand to more schools across the District. “Break into Business is a great way for young students to take a real-world problem and create a business to help solve this problem and make a positive impact on the community.” Well done, Mustangs!

Timberland Graduate Earns Gold Award
Photo of Emily KurtzEmily Kurtz, a 2018 graduate of Timberland High School, recently earned the Girl Scouts' highest honor, the Gold Award, for beautifying a local landmark, the Wentzville Flea Market. After conferring with community members, she decided that rejuvenating the weekly market’s landscape would have a direct impact on her family, friends and neighbors. To earn the Gold Award, Kurtz designed and constructed a much-needed picnic table in addition to beautifying the surrounding area. Kurtz rallied the community to accomplish her goal – from expert construction advice to donations from local business (Monroe Lumber, Inc. and Lowes) – and then built, sanded, and stained a table for community members to gather and relax. Kurtz also planted flowers (also donated by the community). Not only will Kurtz’s friends, families and neighbors have a place to sit while at the flea market, but the Wentzville Community Club will also make sure the area stays clean and beautiful for years to come. Kurtz will be recognized with other Gold Award Girl Scouts during a special ceremony at Lindenwood University in St. Charles on Sunday, June 9, 2019. Well done, Emily! #♥oftheWSD #WSDleads #WSDcommunity #WSDproud
 
Polar Express Comes to Barfield Early Childhood
The tradition of the Polar Express continues for its eighth year (fourth at its new location) at the Barfield Early Childhood Special Education Center, thanks to Principal Kevin Garcia. Students had an opportunity to board the Polar Express, and enjoy hot chocolate and cookies while Mr. Garcia read "The Polar Express" to them - complete with train sound effects. Then Santa Claus made a surprise visit to find out what they wanted for Christmas.

To top it all off, our littlest students got to marvel at a very special Lionel train display, thanks to Mr. Garcia (who's a train aficionado) and his helpers. Mr. Garcia's gift to his students each year reminds us all of the magic of the holidays and the value of remaining young at heart. #12DaysofGiving #♥oftheWSD #WSDtraditions
 
Wentzville Holiday Tree Lighting and Parade

On December 2, the WSD and the holiday school bus took part in the annual Wentzville Holiday Tree Lighting and Parade to the delight of hundreds who lined the streets of the parade route. Staff members from the WSD, including Superintendent Dr. Curtis Cain, CFO Pam Frazier, and Assistant Superintendents Dr. Megan Stryjewski (Curriculum) and Dr. Jen Hecktor (Human Resources) walked the route with the bus, distributing candy to families along the way. Thanks so much to David Wilson, Kim Boix and Christy Cameron, and the rest of the Transportation Department for such a great job of decorating the bus once again this year!

The event started with the Holiday Tree Lighting Ceremony at the intersection of Pearce and Luetkenhaus Boulevard. There was live musical entertainment at Pete's Drive-In provided by the Heritage Harmonizers, and Mayor Nick Guccione performed the official tree lighting across the boulevard. The parade ended at the fire department with hot chocolate and cookies and a visit with Santa. It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas! #WSDcommunity

The students were first introduced to The Young Americans at the fall International Music Outreach Workshop in September, which was held at Timberland High School. Over 17 students auditioned while the group was in town, with these five earning a callback - and then an invitation - to join the elite group of performers and teachers. The Young Americans audition thousands of students from around the globe each year and only accept about 130 annually. Congratulations to Carter, Meg, Phoebe, Kate and Allison! #WSDLeads#WSDproud

Girls on the Run
Photo of Members of Prairie View Elementary Girls on the Run
More than 80 girls from five WSD schools participated in a 5K run on November 17th in downtown St. Louis as part of Girls on the Run St. Louis, a 10-week program where girls learn and practice skills to help them navigate life experiences, like making new friends, being a positive teammate, and contributing in their community. Through running, the program inspires girls to nurture their physical and emotional health. Coaches and older mentors model these skills, build healthy relationships with participants and help to create a safe space for girls to challenge themselves to be the best they can be. Girls from Crossroads, Lakeview, Prairie View, and Stone Creek joined over 5,000 young runners from across 23 counties for the celebratory race that caps off the program. They were joined by their coaches – volunteer teachers and parents - who want to share the GOTR mission with our students to encourage girls to make healthy choices, recognized their inner strength, and celebrate what makes them unique.

Let Me Run Club

Let Me Run is a program that does just that – a club that brings boys together for life lessons and healthy living. It’s the first year that Green Tree and Prairie View Elementary boys are participating in Let Me Run, and 21 boys from the schools are registered (12 at Green Tree and nine at Prairie View). The Let Me Run club meets to not only work on fitness levels by running and stretching but also to foster leadership and social skills in young men. New friendships are forming, goals are being set and reevaluated as they are accomplished - all in an effort to build character and forge leaders. The teams meet for an hour and 15 minutes twice a week, over seven weeks, a total of 14 team meetings. The Let Me Run program culminated in a 5K race in Tower Grove Park (Nov. 10), featuring runners from about 20 schools from the Metro Area that are participating in the program. Prairie View's team is led by teacher Jennifer Besowshek and parent volunteer BJ Fila, and Green Tree teachers Andrea Buchheit and Nichole Etchason lead a handful of volunteers for their school’s team. More info can be found on www.letmerun.org. #WSDleads #WSDlearns #WSDcommunity
