The Wood River Elementary PTO is excited to announce that it is once again sponsoring a science camp this summer for central Nebraska youth entering grades K-8. “Super Force Science Adventure” for grades K-5 will be held Monday, July 27 through Wednesday, July 29 at Wood River High School Theater lobby, due to renovations planned at the Elementary School this summer. Students entering grades K-2 will attend 9 am – 12 pm and grades 3-5 will attend 1 pm – 4 pm. Back by popular demand, the Middle School camp for youth entering grades 6-8 will be held at Wood River High School on Thursday, July 30th and Friday, July 31st from 1:00pm – 4:30pm.
There is a $35 registration fee for students who wish to participate in either camp. Partial and full scholarships to cover that fee are available if needed. This camp is open to any children entering grades K-8 for the 2015-16 school year regardless of where they live. Carpooling is available to/from Alda.
Starting with the 2015 – 2016 school year, we are changing the availability of Acetaminophen (Tylenol) and Ibuprofen (Advil/Motrin). We will no longer have these medications at the school for student use. If your child is in need of these over-the-counter pain meds, you will need to send the medication in the original bottle with your child’s name printed on it. You will also need to download off of the school website or get from the school, a medication release form. This form needs to be signed by you, dated and returned to the school before any medication can be given. If you have any questions, please call Kim Woitaszewski R.N. School Nurse. Click here for the medication release form.
Thanks to Jim Skeen, Wood River fans are again able to watch games via online streaming video. Click here for the link to watch live games, or replay past events. Go Eagles!!
