Sixth graders at Webb began an Independent Writing Project this year under the direction of Ms. Wynne. The idea came in part from Google's practice with their employees who are are given 20% of their work week to devote themselves to an independent project that is company related. Students began by exploring a range of writing genres and finally settled on their own to try out. They are studying mentor texts, researching, drafting, and collaborating with other writers. They are creating everything from cook books to sports casts- from fantasy novels to children's books. While some students recently published their first round and are moving onto a new project, others are carrying out their writing project for the entirety of the school year. This sample is a video clip, that was made entirely by three sixth graders, that broadcasts their writing. Enjoy!

We had over 145 students attend the first ever after school Movie Time at Webb! The movie showing of INSIDE OUT concentrated on emotions and self-regulation.  We have been focusing on this topic a lot through our Yoga4Classrooms program.  The event had a great turnout of students and staff.  In fact, even Joy and the Webb Wildcat made an appearance.  We are looking forward to future Movie Times at Webb!

On Tuesday, December 22nd, our Superintendent, Mr. Michael Emmett, came to read to the three year-old classes at Webb’s preschool. Mr. Emmett has been doing this every year since becoming superintendent. He read the book, Bear Snores On to the interested students and then found that his own teddy bear from his youth had hidden in his briefcase and come to school with him! Mr. Emmett shared his bear with all the children before putting his bear back in the briefcase to be sure he returned home.

On December 17th, SDMS students were treated to an interactive food demonstration during lunch time. Root vegetables are the nutrition and Food Focus for the month of December, so Chef Rachel Larensen whipped up some healthful and new veggie snacks to try.  Students preferred the sweet potato chip and roasted sweet potatoes; many were brave and sampled parsnip chips and balsamic roasted carrots!  SDMS athletes were excited to learn that the complex carbohydrates provided by root veggies can power them through sports.  Even Principal Czapla and Vice Principal Fries stopped by to encourage students to fill up on these tasty and affordable nutrient powerhouses!  Make sure to include root vegetables like sweet potatoes, carrots, potatoes, onions, garlic, (and more!) into a balanced diet for optimum health and nutrition! More questions about personal nutrition?  Feel free to email your District Dietitian, Emily Pomykala, at epomykala@wethersfield.me.
