Life in the WDMCS 3/7/2016

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.

Clive Learning Academy
Clive Learning Academy kindergartners got creative with paintbrushes to kick off March. They used materials like feathers, sponges, and pipe cleaners to make their own versions of the paintbrush, then tested their new inventions.

Hillside Elementary
The week of Feb. 29-March 4, students at Hillside Elementary celebrated Dr. Seuss’ birthday by participating in a variety of fun literacy activities. Students wrote Dr. Seuss-inspired pieces, read Dr. Seuss books together, and had the opportunity to dress up like their favorite Dr. Seuss characters.

Walnut Creek Campus
Students from Walnut Creek Campus participated in the Junior Achievement Stock Market Challenge on March 1. Each team competed to accumulate the highest possible net worth in their investment portfolio at the close of trading, with 60 seconds representing one day of trading in the stock market simulator. The Walnut Creek team at one point reached second place and got some valuable hands-on experience with the stock market simulation
