"Scrap the MAP" Video
Wednesday, February 6, was a national day of action and solidarity for the efforts of teachers at Garfield High School in Seattle, Washington, and their boycott of Washington's standardized test (called the "MAP").
We made this video to show why authentic assessment is so important to us.
See your child engaged and thriving at Wingra next year!

iPad Minis in the Lab
We've recently purchased 20 iPad minis for students to use in our technology lab and in the classrooms! Students will have access to a collection of age-appropriate apps for reading, writing, math, and more.
We're excited about the possibilities for student learning and for the future of technology education at Wingra!
Purchase of these new iPads was made possible by our capital campaign.
