From The Scrip Store...

3 more ways to boost your family's scrip account:

  1. Ralphs Club Card: are you registered? WSOC's number is 80234, at Ralphs.com under the 'Community Contribution' section. This is track-able scrip credit for your family. Sign up your friends and family too! As an incentive, for every FIVE names of family & friends you submit, you'll be given $25.00 of your choice of scrip!
  2. eScrip.com: ask your family, friends, co-workers and neighbors to sign-up and give their ID number and name to you, so you can turn them into The Scrip Store. Then, when their name, ID number and earnings appear on WSOC's monthly report, your family earns scrip credit! As with the Ralphs Club Card, for every FIVE names you submit, you'll be given $25.00 of your choice of scrip!
  3. fresh&easy: this is quite easy~submit your receipts to The Scrip Store (write your name on it so we can credit you!) and for every $20 on the receipt, your family will earn $1 scrip profit credit (that equals 5%). The 'Shop for Schools' promotion ends on December 31, 2011. If we submit the highest dollar amount in California, we will win an ADDITIONAL $5,000! Ask your supporters for their receipts & turn those in too into the fresh&easy box in The Scrip Store

SAVE MONEY~BUY SCRIP! It's a win-win-win for your family scrip bank, your student's class account and the WSOC operating budget!

CASHORE MARIONETTE    PERFORMANCE 

On Monday, The Cashore Marionettes performed right here at WSOC for our entire student body.  These are world-class performers who typically play large performing art venues, so this was truly a special engagement.  Our students had the rare opportunity to see them up close in the intimate setting of our Eurythmy Hall.  We could not have brought this experience to our students without the generous sponsorship provided by Cara & Paul Conolly, Allison & Colin Severn, Catherine Averett & David Unger and Linda Timmons & David Lieberman.  Thank you all for this tremendous gift.

PICTURE DAY SCHEDULE REMINDER      

Monday October 24

Grades 1 - 5

 

NO PRE-PAID PACKAGES: You do not need to turn in any paperwork or money before picture day. There will be no obligation to purchase any pictures, although everyone will have a chance to do so when the images are made available. 

 
WEBSITE PREVIEW & ORDER: You will be able to preview and order photos through a password-protected website. Packages as well as a la carte prints will be available. More information on this will be forthcoming.
 
CLOTHING: The best choice is the simplest. Solid colors or small patterns are best. Avoid plaids, stripes and very bright colors and bold patterns.
 
COLORS: To retain a healthy skin tone avoid white, apple green, purple and yellow.
 
PARENTS: We welcome your enthusiasm in spirit, but please do not observe the photo session as this will be a distraction for the children.
 
MAKE-UP DAY: This will be for children who missed their regularly scheduled session, or if you would like a re-shoot due to photographer error (for example, the picture of your child is out of focus, has a blotch of light, has eyes closed, etc.). There will be only one make-up day: November 7.

GRADE 6 STUDENT PERSPECTIVES  

Grade 7 Rock Climbing Trip

Earlier this month, our 7th Grade spent 2 nights in Joshua Tree National Park where they had the opportunity to rock climb. What an amazing experience, as the students one-by-one faced their fears and then overcame them! Mrs. Mitchell had the students write about their experience.  

Here are a few samples of their personal experience.
