Buffalo Weekly - Jan 23

General information

UNIFORM EXPECTATIONS

The secondary leadership team has noticed over the past couple of weeks that uniform standards are not what they should be. Once students arrive in the school building, outside coats and jackets should be put into lockers and the WYIS uniform must be worn throughout the school day. Failure to follow these standards will lead to a discipline form. If you need to purchase more uniform items, please order through the main office.

JIAO WARS FUNDRAISER FOR LAOS SERVICE TRIP

There are two days left for Jiao Wars. Jiao Wars is a fundraiser organized by The Laos Service Trip Team this week only. All elementary and secondary classes have been placed in teams and compete for daily prizes. Students can donate money to their team before school and during lunchtime. Students can add points to their team by giving coins, and they can subtract points from other teams by putting paper money in the other teams' baskets. The team with the highest points each day will win a prize. Prizes will be delivered after the Spring Festival Holiday. The following are the prizes available for each day's winning team:
Monday: Donuts | Tuesday: Milk Tea | Wednesday: Ice Cream | Thursday: Cake | Friday: Pizza Party
Thank you for your support of the Laos Service Trip!
