This past week, eCampus Educators Alexis Hail and Jenna Retzlaff met a Ukrainian mom to discuss her daughters' enrollment into WUSD's eCampus virtual school.

Our #WatertownWay eCampus Academy staff has partnered with US University Pathways in recent months to enroll international students into eCampus to earn a WUSD diploma and a pathway to a Wisconsin college. Connecting with Olga and her family is an outgrowth of this effort and one that WUSD is pleased and honored to be able to support!

Mrs. Peters’ #WatertownWay 4K class at Webster Elementary had a special tailgate snack last week as they celebrated the opening of Major League Baseball for the season! They have been reading the book Goodnight Baseball by Michael Dahl. Students were handed tickets to match an uppercase letter to a lowercase letter to find their seat - just like they would at a baseball game! They sampled hotdogs, ketchup, mustard, relish, cracker jacks, root beer, and ice cream from Mullen’s! While sampling, the children reported on a sheet whether they thought the food was ‘yummy’ or ‘yucky.’ They completed their tailgate by watching a sausage race and singing “Take Me Out to the Ballgame.”
Last week, Mrs. Kowalski's kindergarten class showed support of their 3rd, 4th and 5th grade friends as they began Forward testing by wearing their "Learn and Play the Wildcat Way - 💯% Everyday" t-shirts! It's the #WatertownWay!
