"Pennies for Food" for a district effort to support
local food pantry
Helping neighbors in need - a very special holiday investment!
Nov. 27, 2013 - The number of people in our community going without food is staggering. And due to recent changes in legislation concerning food stamps, food banks are being drained of their resources faster than ever. The WVCSD and WV Council of PTAs are working together to make a difference! Beginning in December, students will begin a “Pennies for Food” campaign. Each student will be given the task of collecting at least 100 pennies, to be donated to the local food pantry. (Pennies are appreciated but, of course, nickels, dimes, quarters or dollars are also most welcome and needed.)
Dec. 3, 2013 - The Warwick School District is pleased to offer Rosetta Stone foreign language software to students in Grades K-6. The program will be introduced in school: Grades K-4 in computer labs with staff assistance and Grades 5 & 6 in a PTA-sponsored after-school club, and may also be used from home.
Need teacher gift ideas? Check the wish list.
Dec. 4, 2013 - The "Classroom Wish
List" program allows teachers and administrators
in the WVCSD to collaborate and post a wish list of classroom supplies that would benefit every teacher in an individual building. The community can purchase these items right off the wish list and help build a supply closet, which any teacher can access.

entails is putting your photos on a disc or flash drive

and flash drives will be returned). Please help us create
a beautiful memory for your child and your family.
And...to all parents of graduating Sanfordville students, please turn in your child's baby picture & dedication as soon as possible. Remember, dedications must not exceed 150 characters, including spaces & punctuation. Thank you! Contact Tracy Fishler.
