• Welcome Parents and Students to something new!


    This year Widewater Elementary School is hosting their very first Gaming Group.  The PTO has provided fourth grade with an amazing gift of games.  This after school program is open to fourth grade students.  We are running 3 6 week sessions.  The first session began on October 10, 2019.  Students are dismissed to the art room on Thursday afternoons to play boardgames...no Monopoly here!  These board games are not your usual board games.  They are strategic in nature or teach cooperative learning strategies for the students to work together against the game itself.  We are beginning with a game called Ticket to Ride.  In this game students are given two cities in the United States that they must connect with railroad lines.  This game specifically teaches strategy and geography.  Our next game, Splendor uses chips and cards.  Students collect chips in order to build a gem bank, earn points and win the game.  Our third game Castle Panic has students working cooperateively together to play against the board game.  In this game orcs try to take the castle, while students work collaborately to try and stop it.  Last but not least One Night Ultimately Wearwolf.  In this role playing card game students must figure out who the wearwolf is.  Sound like fun?  It is a blast!  If you have not signed up...you should! Pick up for students is 5:00 p.m. at the front door. 

    Our next meeting is Thursday October 24, 2019


    *Parents please remember to bring a picture ID when picking up your child and signing them out. 

     ALL MEETINGS ARE AT 4:00 p.m. after school.
