We are excited to share with you our summer learning program. This summer, students will be able to earn pin by completing challenges. We’re challenging our students to earn 2 pins a week!
There’s over 30 pins for students to choose from. Students can choose the ones that interest them the most. To view all of the pins, visit our website at http://www.wolcs.org/apps/pages/2020SummerChallenge.
As students complete challenges, they will email their work to Summer2020@wolcs.org to receive the virtual pin. They’ll be able to view their virtual pins through the Badgr app connected to clever. The first time students sign into Badgr, they will need their WOLCS google account and password.
Students will receive a $25 Amazon gift card for every 7 pins they earn! In addition, students will receive an honorary lunch when we return in the fall along with the real pin.
Don’t forget to check ClassDojo for announcements of the weekly student in the spotlight and zoom events where students will be able to come together to earn the pin of the week!
West Oak Lane Charter School (WOLCS) is breaking new ground in response to COVID-19 as it will hold its enrollment lottery via Facebook Live. PA charter schools are required to hold lotteries when applications exceed available seats. After COVID-19 closed school buildings, WOLCS officials extended the school’s 2020-2021 school year lottery so that parents who did not submit enrollment applications before March 13 could participate in seeking public school choice for their children.
WOLCS CEO Dr. Debbera Peoples-Lee said, “While we will miss seeing the smiles, hugs, and high fives when a family’s child is selected from the lottery, we are thankful for technology like Facebook Live that will ensure winning families are not cheated out of their special celebratory moment.”
UPDATE: Due to the heightened concerns of exposure to the Coronavirus, the Pennsylvania Department of Education has closed all schools indefinitely. Please click "Read Full Story" below to keep updated on all available information.
