The 7th grade students helped Harry during their engineering design challenge.  Students constructed the tallest free standing perch possible so that Harry could see across the room.  Engineering design challenges promote creative scientific thinking and teamwork.

The Weekend Warrior, Leo's Helping Paw, and the Amanda Steffy Family

Nate, along with the help of Mrs. Debbie Woods,  keeps growing our Weekend Warrior program.  He worked with Leo's Helping Paw to secure a big food donation for our program.  Nate was able to triple the number of backpacks going home on Fridays due to the generosity of this great organization.  Thank you to Amanda Steffy and her family for the food donations through Leo's Helping Paw.  Amanda Steffy is a former Whiteisde student who wanted to give back to her school.  This is the Whiteside Way!  No child in our school will ever have to worry about food insecurity over the weekend or on long breaks.

The Weekend Warrior: Nate and Mrs. Debbie Woods

Our 7th  grader, Nate, works hard every Friday to pack twenty-five backpacks filled with food for our students.  This was Nate's own idea at the beginning of the year and he has made his dream a reality.  Nate beleives  that no student should ever have to worry about food insecurity over the weekends or long breaks.  Through his passionate leadership, Nate was able to get funding for the program, along with donations from area churches.  Nate is a great example for all of us!  I also want to thank Debbie Woods for helping Nate with this important project that is near and dear to her heart.  Mrs. Woods and Nate are making our school community a better place, one Friday at a time.

8th Grade Student of the Month: Ashley

Ashley is an incredibly friendly and hardworking student.  She is an active member of the National Junior Honor Society and Photo Club.  We can always count on Ashley to be responsible and helpful in and out of the classroom.  Ashely, we are so proud of you and we appreciate all of your hard work. Congratulations to Ashley for being named the 8th Grade Student of the Month.
