Wolf Ridge Dreamflag Project

5th Grade Teacher Mrs. Cheryl Best and her 5th Grade Service Club participated in The Dream Flag Project, an annual poetry/art/community-connection project for students in K-12th grade. To participate in the project, students read the poetry of Langston Hughes, focusing on his dream poems. Students then create their own dream poems and transfer them on to pieces of cloth. They decorate their cloth and transfer them on to a line. These flags are currently displayed in Wolf Ridge halls. To date, more than 100,000 Dream flags have been created by students in 42 states and 27 other countries.

This year, Mrs. Best asked Mrs. Bristol’s high school multimedia class to come over and take a short video compilation of the flags and students reading their poems. It was a fun, learning task by all.

Student Council Hosted 3rd Annual Team Building Day

High School Student Council sponsored, by Mrs. Bristol, hosted our Annual Team-Building event Friday, April 28th. This year we invited and hosted the Junior High (sponsored by Mrs. Meisenheimer) for the morning. We had 15 stations and students were grouped in teams of 4 with students they don’t normally spend time with and were asked to complete challenges and work collaboratively together while building social skills. The challenges included obstacle courses, cookie eating challenges, 4 legged races, to inflatables. Once groups finished all challenges they were given popcorn and soda. We ended the afternoon with a presentation by Dan Strohbeck about the consequences of drinking and driving.
We think it was a successful day for both Junior High and High School. The Junior High wrote Student Council  thank you notes of appreciation and asked to come back next year. We enjoyed having them over and hope to continue the tradition.
