What perfect weather for Bike Day! Our 4s had a blast as they rode their bikes around the parking lot and reviewed the bike safety rules. Thank you to everyone who made a donation to St. Jude Children's Hospital. WIPP has already raised over $500 to help this great cause! (To contribute, go to www.stjude.org .)
WIPP Bike Week and St. Jude's Trike-a-Thon
Again this year we're partnering with St. Jude Children's Research Hospital during our WIPP bike week. St. Jude has provided bike safety materials that we'll be sharing with our students throughout the week of March 26th. For more information on the wonderful work that St. Jude's does for families of children with cancer you can visit their website at www.stjude.org .
If you'd like to help us support the work that St. Jude's does, please see the Trike-a-Thon information and pledge form sent home on Tuesday and Wednesday. All of our 3s and 4s at W.I.P.P. will participate in the bike safety activities, even if your family chooses not to participate in the Trike-a-Thon pledges/donations; therefore there is no need to complete a permission form from St. Jude. Our 4s will bring their bikes to school on Tuesday, March 27, and our 3s will bring their bikes to school on Wednesday, March 28. Look for more details from your child's teacher.
If you have any questions, call the office (897-7568) or email email@example.com .

Just an update on some of the things going on around school as we make our way through March.
In addition to all of the spring colds and allergies, we have had several cases of a stomach virus over the last 10 days. This seems to hit quickly and linger, so if your child complains of an upset stomach, keep this in mind.
St. Patrick's Day
We're gearing up for our 23rd annual St. Patrick's Day parade on Friday, March 16th. We're still in need of one more convertible or golf cart for our WIPP Court to ride in. If you can help us out with this, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call the office at 897-7568.
If you haven't checked out our Donuts with Daddies and Desserts with Daddies photos on the blog, don't forget to take a peek at those. We had a wonderful time. Thanks to everyone who participated.
St. Jude's Bike Week
During the week of March 26th, WIPP will be supporting St. Jude Children's Research Hospital by sponsoring a bike week. Forms will be sent home with the children next week asking for your support—and our 3s and 4s will have a bike day during that week! They'll bring their bikes to school and get to ride with their friends. Keep your eyes open for more info next week.
We have fewer than four slots left in our 3s and 4s for next year! If you haven't yet turned in your registration information for next year, please do so ASAP!
