Martin Luther King, Jr. Essay Contest and Celebration

Please see the attached flyer for more information regarding the Martin Luther King, Jr. Annual Essay Contest.  We would love our students to participate.  The theme this year is “beloved community.”   The attached flier provides additional information and thoughts that can help students start to formulate their essays or drawings.   It would be wonderful if we could have tons of entries from WGSD.   Attached you will also find a copy of the flyer providing information regarding the Annual Martin Luther King, Jr. Celebration. 

Warm Up With Webster Reads!

We love it when our students read, read, read! Please see the attached flyer outlining a program that will help a student earn a free book – all for reading during their winter vacation!
