The New Playground  -  Lauren

This summer, Whiting Village School got a fun new up-grade. A PLAYGROUND! The kids love it, including me. I asked Cort and Saphira what they thought of it, and they said, “I love it so much, and I love the monkey bars!”

I bet the PTC, Healthy Acadia, and the town of Whiting are all happy to hear that after the $8,300 dollars that they spent on it. Thanks for the help of Mr. Johnson (the principal) and his wife and son, Terri Woodruff, Branden and Adrian Garcia, Wyrick and Mike McCabe, Daisy Jo Jones, the Dinsmore's garage for storage, the Halls for excavation and sand. Thanks to donations (In Memory of Earl Myers and others) and grants received, this project got done. Whiting needed all the help they could gather, and they got it ready in time for the first day of school.

New Kids  -  Sadie

New kids are the people that you really don't know. Once you get to know them, they are really nice people like new pre-kers. This year we have 5 new pre-kers and one new kindergarten student. They are Saphira, Terra, Hudson, Phoebe, and Tegan in pre-K and Lexa in kindergarten. So if you see them, ask them if they like school and what is their favorite thing about school. I bet they will say recess, but the point is to make them feel welcome

The Greenhouse  -  Chloe 

Whiting Village School has a new greenhouse handmade by our own Principal, Mr. Johnson, and his son, John. We started the greenhouse with a grant from Healthy Acadia. Ms. Higgins is using this space for a variety of veggies that the lower grade planted. The variety of the veggies will be used for the student lunch.

SPORTS - Melach

The Whiting School has a cross country team. The team’s color is red, and they are trying hard. The people in track are Cort, Christian, Sydney Ph, Chloe D, Daisy, Daniela, Hailey, and Aeva. Kids in different grades run different numbers of laps. The track team runs laps around the playground, and they practice at Whiting and have meets at Jonesport. Go Team!

Lunch  -  Tyler

This week at WVS our lunch lady, Mrs. Hall, is cooking up a surprise in the kitchen. On Monday the 22nd we will have some yummy hamburger in gravy! On Tuesday the 23rd we are having corn chowder. Wednesday the 24th  cheese ravioli is coming our way! On Thursday the 25th we are going to have a chicken ranch wrap! Last but not least, on Friday the 26th WE ARE HAVING BREAKFAST FOR LUNCH. THIS ISN'T ANY NORMAL BREAKFAST FOR LUNCH. WE ARE HAVING FRENCH TOAST!

And that is the week's lunch from the WVS newsletter!
