This move will enable our wonderful WCE PTA to move their fundraiser date back due to missing two full weeks of school.</p><p>The WCE Art Department has rescheduled the fundraiser for April 2-6, 2018. We hope that this postponement will not discourage you from ordering art work from your favorite little Ranger Artist as we know that parents are used to placing orders for the end-of-year holiday season. It is important to keep in mind that there are several mid-year holidays that would be wonderful to buy gifts for during our April fundraiser.</p><p>The ART TO REMEMBER fundraiser will resume once again the following school year for October 2018.</p><p style="text-align:center;"> </p><p style="text-align:center;"><br></p><p style="text-align:center;"><strong>Your Childs Absence</strong></p><p>Ranger Parents, </p><p>We have a new, time-saving way that you can report that your child will be absent!  Please see <a href="http://tinyurl.com/absenceWCE" title="error">http://tinyurl.com/absenceWCE</a> for more information!</p><p><strong>Lindsey Chase</strong></p><p>Assistant Principal</p><p><strong>WoodCreek Elementary</strong></p><p>281.234.0109 </p><p> </p><p style="text-align:center;"><br></p><p style="text-align:center;"><strong>WCE Parents/Lunch Visitors</strong></p><p> When visiting your child for lunch, please remember to stay at the <strong>Visitor's Table ONLY</strong> and <strong>NO taking pictures</strong> of anyone but your own child to heed <strong>FERPA regulations.</strong> Other class friends cannot join you.

Henry David Thoreau said, "The world is but a canvas to the imagination." This month we will focus on fostering creativity so that our students can dream and imagine. Below are some great activities that you can do with your family so that we can SAY, KNOW, SEE and BE what it means to be creative!</p><p>SAY IT:</p><p>Creativity is using your imagination to do something unique.</p><p> </p><p>KNOW IT:</p><p><em> </em></p><p><em>Ask a kid:</em></p><ul style="list-style-type:disc;"><li>Have you ever made up a game to play with friends or by yourself?</li><li>Share ideas, dreams or thoughts you have had about something that you have created or want to create.</li></ul><p><em> </em></p><p><em>Ask a grown up:</em></p><ul style="list-style-type:disc;"><li>What does it mean to think outside the box?</li><li>When are you at your most creative? Are you most creative when you are in a crowd, alone, busy, bored, happy, sad, etc.? Share your experiences.</li></ul><p> </p><p>SEE IT:</p><p>The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in Manhattan, New York displays some of the most creative works of art in the world. Art is not just paintings or sculptures, but can also be movies, songs, architecture, photos and books. Two and a half million visitors from all over the world enjoy these mediums and more throughout the year at MoMA. Check it out for yourself at moma.org.</p><p> </p><p>BE IT:</p><p>Research your area for opportunities to get your family involved in creative endeavors. Ideas include painting classes, pottery classes, and culinary classes. Participating as a family in these classes will give you an opportunity to exercise your creative potential and the opportunity to appreciate everyone's imagination.</p><p> </p><p>Try these links for great video suggestions about CREATIVITY:</p><p>Creativity Virtue Video: <a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pFNKj4Qqqjw&app=desktop">https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pFNKj4Qqqjw&app=desktop</a></p><p>Make Something!
