Wenonah Elementary School Life Skills students learned important dental hygiene practices as part of an informative presentation given by Kiddsmiles Pediatric Dentistry.

As part of the life skills class curriculum, a representative from Kiddsmiles taught students the importance of dental hygiene and what to expect during a visit to the dentist’s office. Students learned the most effective technique to use when brushing their teeth, foods that cause tooth decay and other foods that can improve their dental health. 

Throughout the presentation students were called upon to practice the skills covered during the activity.  

Student Activity Honors Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

Empathy was on the mind of students throughout Wenonah Elementary School recently as students participated in a two-week kindness challenge in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

As part of the character education curriculum at Wenonah, students took part in the Kindness and Justice Challenge that included multiple activities aimed to foster an inclusive learning environment. During Mismatched Shoe Day, students wore two different shoes to school to generate conversation on seeing things from the perspective of someone else. 
Other special themed activities that occurred during the week included Backwards Day when students wore a shirt backwards to represent that once something hurtful is said it can’t be taken back. During an activity named Mix It Up, students were assigned to sit at a different table during their lunch period and make conversation with a student they didn’t know. The activity was a valuable opportunity for students to meet new people and make new friends.  

Faculty and staff also took part in the challenge by participating in the Mix It Up activity. Teachers sat with colleagues they don’t normally sit with at a recent staff breakfast.
