CONGRATULATIONS TO WESTERN TOLEDO PREPARATORY ACADEMY!
WTPA kicked off its first fundraiser and the kids are having a POPPIN’ time with it! With so many different prizes students can win, we can’t wait to see who the highest seller will be!
Our second quarter Perfect Attendance and Honor Roll students had visitors from the Walleye Hockey Team this past week! Although not everyone was able to score on spike, they did receive some pretty nice jerseys out of it!
The first week of March was Read Across America Week and WTPA planned different activities each day to get our kiddos active in reading throughout the whole week.
Monday: Emoji Pictionary: Teachers spent time in the
morning with their kiddos figuring out the names of different books.

Thursday: Read with a buddy:
8th grade read with 4th grade,
7th grade read with 2nd and
3rd grade, 6th grade read with

Throughout the day we had staff members read a story
over the P.A. and classes had to guess who the mystery reader was.
