Library : Ozobots Students learned about what programs and codes are and put that to practice as they coded to run Ozobots. We worked on this for two weeks and students enjoyed experimenting with coding.
Library: Dot Day In September we participated in International Dot Day based on the book by Peter Reynolds. We read the story and created our own dot art the first week. The next week students completed a STEM challenge of making a bridge with dot stickers.
Reminder: There is no school on Thursday, October 21st or Friday, October 22nd.
Oct. 18-22 is the Week of Inclusion. Participate in some acts of service. Let someone know you are here for them. Help end social isolation and invite someone to eat lunch with you. Small changes can have a big impact! #bullyprevention #service #nooneeatsalone #hereforyou
Yesterday we had our first snowy day of the school year! Our students thoroughly enjoyed their time playing in the snow, sledding and building snowmen. We look forward to many more snowy days to come!
Last week we were visited by the Williston Rural Fire Department, our students had a blast getting to see fireman in all their gear and getting to climb into the firetruck!
We would like to take a moment to remind drivers and pedestrians to be cautious around our schools. Parents, please remind your students about being a safe pedestrian, and drivers, please be sure to stop at all stop signs and watch for pedestrians. Thank you!
We are experiencing some phone issues throughout the district today. We are sorry for any inconveniences this may cause.
Williston Basin School District #7 takes the safety and security of our students and staff very seriously. Recently, our School Board passed board policy KAAB, School Volunteer Program. This policy states that anyone who wants to volunteer in our schools during the school day must submit to, and pass, a background test. While we understand that this may cause an inconvenience to some, we feel strongly that this policy is in the best interests of student and staff safety. For those of you who want to volunteer with events such as classroom parties, field trips, assisting with carnivals, fairs, field days, reading days, lunch in a classroom (not in the gym or lunchroom), etc., please contact Barb Erickson (701)572-1580 ext. 01012 or firstname.lastname@example.org. The school board has also passed board policy KAAA, Visitors in Schools. For the safety and security of everyone, those of you who want to visit our schools during the school day as spectators to watch assemblies, talent shows, programs, concerts, or to have lunch with your student in the gym or lunchroom, will need to have your current photo I.D. scanned at the front office and receive a visitor badge to wear during your time in the building. We appreciate your support in helping to keep our students and staff safe. If you have any questions, please contact your building administrator, or the Superintendent.
Unfortunately, our photographer has gotten sick, so we have re-rescheduled Picture Day to next Friday (10/15) at 9:30. Any photo orders placed online will still be valid
