The Leader in Me
7 HABITS IN THE SCHOOL THAT SHINES!
For the first two months of school, we’ll review all the 7 habits and then throughout the rest of the year, we’ll focus on one habit per month. At the beginning of the year, time is spent refreshing the 7 habits language and then throughout the rest of the year we will learn how to live and model the 7 habits in everything we do!

Litterless Lunch Wednesday is Back!
Win Ferguson's EPA club is bringing back Litterless Lunch every Wednesday! EPA leaders encourage everyone at our school to bring in a lunch each Wednesday that contains little to no garbage so start looking for those reusable containers! Remember you can recycle juice boxes, cans, and milk cartons at school.
EPA members will visit classrooms every Wednesday and take down names of students who brought in a litterless lunch. Please look at the calendar to see when EPA members will be visiting your class! People who bring in a litterless lunch will put their names into a draw for some great enviromental prizes.
The class that brings in the most litterless lunches will be awarded the Litterless Lunch Trophy for the week! EPA looks forward to visiting all the classes at Win Ferguson. Thank you for supporting us!
Win Ferguson Community School has a tradition of excellence in all of its programming. Our dedicated staff works diligently to ensure the needs of all students are met. This is a tradition we are extremely proud of. In addition to an exemplary staff and student body, we are fortunate to have a committed group of outstanding parents and community members who support our school programs and activities.
There are many wonderful and exciting learning opportunities that take place throughout the school year. From Opening Day to our Year-end Celebration, these activities promote lifelong learning in an environment that is both supported and nurtured by our learning community.
We believe the education of our students is best achieved by a team approach that includes the child, the home and the school. The development and maintenance of this partnership is truly vital. We look forward to working together in the best interests of each one of our students. We understand that our children are society's most precious resource.
We are very proud to be "The School that SHINES!"
Have a wonderful year!
