Life in the WDMCS 08/31/2015
Life in the WDMCS is a weekly feature that highlights what is happening at each of our buildings. If a school is not listed, there was no submission from that building this week.
Last Monday was the first day of school in the WDMCS district! Check out some fun photos of the day below.
The video of the “One Day More” parody flash mob performed at the Staff Welcome Back Event has gone viral! More than 30 educators representing every district building participated in the flash mob. Thank you and congratulations to the talented WDMCS employees who were part of this, especially Greg Hudson and Superintendent Dr. Lisa Remy. The video and full parody lyrics can be found on YouTube, where it has surpassed 2 million views.
Meals from the Heartland holds its signature event, the Annual Hunger Fight, each year in late August. Jordan Creek third-graders were lucky enough to be able to participate in this event on Aug. 26. The Annual Hunger Fight has grown to be the largest volunteer meal packaging event of its type in the world. During their time volunteering, the students and parents filled bags that would feed up to six people. The meal package included rice, soy protein, vitamins, minerals, and dried vegetables. They also had to use their math skills to perfectly weigh the bags, seal them and count them out before boxing them up.
Meals from the Heartland food packages are nutritionally balanced meals containing soy protein, vitamins and minerals. The meals that were made will be distributed locally and throughout the world to such places as El Salvador, Nicaragua, Honduras, Haiti, Kenya, South Africa, Venezuela and the Dominican Republic. Jordan Creek students left feeling blessed to be part of such a wonderful event.
