School News for September 21, 2015

Spirit Week is upon us!

This is spirit week at Wells with a daily theme and we encourage all students to participate. The week culminates in the first dances of the year on Friday in the gym. 6th Grade dance is 3:30-5:00pm and 7th and 8th Grade dance is 5:30-7:30pm. Tickets to the dance are $5 and a permission slip must be filled out before ticket purchase. Permission slips can be picked up at the Student Window, and must be returned before Friday at lunch. Tickets will be sold during lunch every day this week.

Wheels offers Fare Buster ride passes, which you can purchase at the Student Window or order via mail, by phone, or at several locations in the Tri-Valley. Information on these can be found here . The passes are a 10 ride sheet for $16.

The PFC has launched a new Website and Facebook Group , and invite you to join us there. If you know of families not receiving these, please have them go to our new website.

The PFC Wants you!

We are currently looking for a Co-Secretary and Vice President. The responsibilities of each position can be found in section 7.3 of the PFC Bylaws, here .

The PFC funds many supplies and activities benefiting the students of Wells. We cannot do that without your support, and we increased our recommended donation to $1 per day, or $180 per year. We understand that this is not feasible for all families, but we do appreciate anything you may be able to do. You can donate through the DONATE NOW button on our new website.

From The Office

Are you interested in making a positive impact on Wells Middle School? Do you want to make Wells a school where we all feel safe, and where BULLYING doesn’t exist? Are you someone who stands up for others when not being treated with respect? The UPSTANDER CLUB is a group of students who work together to make these changes at Wells. Come to an informative meeting at the very beginning of lunch on Wednesday, September 23rd in room H-12 to hear if this group is for you!

Interested in becoming a Peer Tutor during AP? Please see Mrs. Urizar in the Counseling Center for more information.

Leadership

For the next 2 weeks on Wednesday’s Leadership will be holding games and activities in the pavilion at lunch called Lunch Time Activities. This will lead up to the dance. Hope to see you there.
