Friday 9/29, we wrapped up the week with our first game of wellness kickball. For those who don’t know, there’s a bit of a coaching/team captain rivalry between Joe and I- although, to call it a rivalry would be slightly unfair. The record isn’t very close. (Something like 13-2 with Joe leading…) What matters is that the students had a blast, and I still looked much better as a loser than Joe did as a winner.

*A note from Jessica Maxwell* 

Thank you so much for allowing me to capture your children at Wheeling Country Day School.  Two years ago we had sweltering heat, last year brought the cold and this year we had the perfect temperature! Finally! I had a blast with them. 

Below you will find the link for photo selections. 


You can navigate to your child’s grade and locate their folder which encloses 2-3 options. Please select the photo you would like printed with your package by using the HEART.  Please only HEART one photo. 

Please note that in order to streamline the process this year, final edits will be made to the photo you select before they are sent to print.  If not already caught, I will fix things like specks of food on their faces or clothes, reflections in glasses etc. One final note on glasses-if you see a photo of your child without their  glasses, you can choose to select it and the glasses will be added in before printing. 

Please make your selections this weekend or by Monday October 2nd. If you have any questions over the weekend or need to schedule absentee/make-ups please text me stating your child’s name/grade and the question. You can reach me at 740-296-9700.

Make-up day will be this coming Tuesday  October 3rd. 

Thank you very much,


  • English w/ Mr. Rouse – Students concluded The Giver by writing a summary for the book. To wrap up the week, we watched the film adaptation of the book.
  • Algebra w/ Mrs. Murray-We began the week with problem solving strategies and modular arithmetic (for example, clock time math).  We spent the remainder of the week reviewing and preparing for our quiz next Tuesday, October 3.   Friday, we played math games, including Farkle and Sushi go.  
  • Music w/ Mrs. Chelsey – Students presented their given rhythms Wednesday, and Friday was all about vibrations and sound waves! We used several mediums including air, water with tuning forks, and salt on a homemade chladni plate to show how sound travels, as well as how we can see it (cymatics)!
  • Science w/ Mrs. Farris – Students survived their first science exam! We spent Tuesday reviewing and Thursday they conquered the challenge. If a question was missed, students were encouraged to double-check their notes to improve scores. Students confidently referenced their notes.
