Get ready for Mumkins!

On Friday, students attended an assembly to officially kick off the school Mumkin sale. Each student received:

  1. An Envelope with their name & unique web sales code
  2. A Mumkin kick-off letter (attached below)
  3. An order form for tracking

New this year: Using your student’s unique web sales code, friends and family can order online and pay via credit card!

We want this to be as easy as possible for parents and kids alike, so we have put together some verbiage, as well as photos of items available (also below) that is easy for you or your child to post or send to friends and family.

Also new this year: Any student selling 20 Mumkins will get to enjoy a VIP Pizza Party in the Teachers Lounge!

Please let Jaime Bystrek or Courtney Grant know if you have any questions.

Looking for something for the kids to do tomorrow? You may be interested in the Community Kids Field Day at the WKHS football stadium tomorrow.

International Baccalaureate students at WKHS invite all kids ages 4 – 4th grade to attend our 2nd Community Kids Field Day from 10:00 – 1:00 on Thursday, May 24 in the Worthington Kilbourne football stadium.

Kids can celebrate the first day of summer by playing organized games with their friends for a great cause – all proceeds go to PackH2O, which provides backpacks to filter and carry water in developing countries.

Kids will be organized by age for a fun morning of games and pizza lunch. Please see the attached flier for more information and to register: https://www.locallevelevents.com/events/details/4801
