Wolcott Street Wonders!
Wolcott Street 6th Graders
SHINE in the Arts!
This past November, 6th grade students performed
Annie KIDS
, the
musical, in the Memorial Auditorium. Director Ms. Jessa Dechant
and Assistant Director Mrs. Andrea Feola auditioned all interested
6th grade students in September, and worked tirelessly during daily
rehearsals to prepare for the performance. The musical was a huge
success due to the students’ hard work preparing lines, memorizing
songs and learning dance moves! Students also showcased their
talents as they created many of the props and stage decorations
from scratch! BRAVO to all our students, directors, stage crew, and
supportive parents for a top-notch performance!
As in previous years, the cast of Annie KIDS also collected non-
perishable goods at the performances as a way to aid the community.
The cast would like to thank everyone for their generous donations
and for the continuous support of arts in our school district. Our
Knights Character Council group organized the donations and
delivered them to the Le Roy Pantry!
Healthy Communities,
Healthy Youth
“Promoting positive youth development through
a school-community partnership”
In support of “Le Roy as a Healthy Community”, 184 scarves
were made with the help of community members, parents,
teachers, and our very
own Wolcott Street
Sc hoo l s t ud e n t s .
These scarves were
donated to the Le Roy
Food Pantry. Over 75
people participated in
this project! School

Progress Reports…
3 Times a Year!
What’s a progress report?
By now you should have
received your child’s first progress report of the year. Our
progress reports are intended to inform students/parents
about how students are learning in each of the core subjects
as well as in special areas such as music, art, and physical
education. You will also find a “Responsibilities of the
Learner” section on the report indicating what your learner
“looks like” while in the classroom. If your child is receiving
support services, this too is indicated.
Our progress reports are based on a 4 point scale: 4 =
Exceeding grade level expectations, 3 = Meeting grade
level expectations, 2 = Beginning to meet grade level
expectations, 1 = Not meeting grade level expectations
and NA = Not assessed at this time. There are a few things
to keep in mind when reading a progress report. As the
school year moves on, students are expected to achieve
different levels of mastery. For example; at the time of
the first progress report, for a student to meet grade level
expectations, the student must count to 10. By the second
progress report, in order to meet grade level expectations,
the student has to count to 100. The same holds true for
reading levels.
Our expectations increase as the school year progresses! A
comment section is included in order for the teacher to share
something specific about your child. Our progress reports do
gradually change or progress from Pre-K all the way to 6th
grade. In fact, 6th grade reflects the Jr. /Sr. High school’s
report cards in order to show the transition to actual grades
for the following year. Please know that you can contact
your child’s teacher at anytime between progress reports
if you are concerned about how your child is progressing!
Our next progress report will be coming home on March
21st and our last report of the year will be on June 20th.
