November 2014 Newsletter Article

An important aspect of Warsaw Community Schools’ Mission is focused outward: “enriching the lives of others.” As we approach the holiday season, I am so incredibly thankful to be a member of a community that takes the time to help others.

As most of you know, Jefferson Elementary students are members of Family Groups. Each “family” is made up of one to two students from each grade level. Our 6th graders lead these groups through a variety of activities that not only enrich the lives of each other, but also members of our local community. During the month of October, Family Groups met to decorate pumpkins as storybook characters. These pumpkins were then donated to Combined Community Services, where they found homes in many places around the Warsaw/Winona Lake area.

Another way we are working to enrich the lives of others is through our annual Food Drive. During the week of November 3rd-7th, we will collect canned/non-perishable food items to be donated to local food pantries. The classroom that collects the most items will receive a special prize. The week will end with our annual Dodgeball Tournament at Lakeview Middle School. Staff and 6th-grade students will compete against our friends at Lincoln, Leesburg, and Harrison. (Jefferson took 1st place last year!) Admission is two canned/non-perishable food items per person. For every two items donated at the game, a raffle ticket will be earned for a variety of door prizes. This is always an enjoyable night for an amazing cause. We hope to see you there to support Jefferson and our greater community!


Peachjar Comes to Jefferson/WCS on Friday the 31st

Peachjar Eflyers, a digital flyer-delivery system, will come to Jefferson/WCS on Friday, October 31st, 2014.

We are excited about being able to provide this service to you. Watch for additional information in the near future.


Jefferson Students Present to School Board

Jefferson students will present about our "Family Groups" tonight at the school board meeting. Students will share from personal experience about what Family Groups mean to them and how the activities have enriched the lives of others at Jefferson and throughout our local community.

In October our Family Groups decorated storybook-character pumpkins, which were enjoyed by all of us at Jefferson, as well as by parents who attended recent Parent/Teacher Conferences. These pumpkins were then donated to Combined Community Services, where they were distributed throughout our community.

We are proud of all of our students, as they continue to show teamwork in their Family Groups and a spirit of giving to others outside of Jefferson.


Fireworks Night at Grace College Miller Field

At the conclusion of the Grace College home Women's Soccer match this Saturday, October 25th, at Miller Field, Grace College will have a 10-15 minute firework show for all fans in attendance. Any child/student who wears a soccer jersey or school t-shirt will be admitted FREE with an accompanying adult. The admission is $5 for adults and $3 for senior citizens (age 62 and up).
