On Tuesday, November 8, Peoria county voters will consider whether to support The Peoria County School Facilities Sales Tax. If approved by voters, the ½% sales tax would generate $9 million annually to be shared among all Peoria County public school districts, based on enrollment. The Peoria Public Schools would receive approximately $4.2 million annually. The revenue is to be used specifically for school building improvements. The Peoria Public Schools building and grounds staff has assessed the needs f each building in the District. Here is the plan for Woodrow Wilson Primary School.
Woodrow Wilson Primary School observed International Peace Week, September 19 – 23 with classroom activities, discussions and art projects. Students shared ideas on how to be peace-makers instead of peace-breakers and ways they can demonstrate peace every day.
Woodrow Wilson has started their first chess club! 28 third and fourth grade students meet for an hour after school every week to learn chess and have fun! This week we were learning about the pawns and played a game called "Pawn Wars" to introduce how pawns can move throughout the chessboard. The students love being exposed to this strategic game!
