The game presented great spirit from both teams. Outside of the valiant effort shown by both teams, the Walatowa boys consistently kept the lead in front of the Valley boys. The Warriors were performing well, but Cougar boys simply performed well enough to keep the Warriors from even having a point advantage ahead of the Cougars. Cougars keep up the comradery for the rest of the season!!!

Reading Plus addresses the three areas critical to reading success – the physical (strengthening eye muscles to develop fluency and stamina); cognitive (building vocabulary to improve comprehension); and emotional (tapping students’ interests to build confidence and motivation). In addition, Reading Plus is structured in a way that supports our individualized approach to education. At Walatowa High Charter School, we test our students’ reading proficiency at the beginning of the school year to map out an education plan. In addition, we implement weekly data to adjust lessons and personalize assignments based on each student’s progress. Finally, our students have not had much academic success in their young lives. Reading Plus offers successes, big and small, almost daily.

Celebrating "Dia de los Muertos" at WHCS: As part of a school-wide unit, celebrating Cultural Tradition(s) from around the world we will focus on the annual Dia De Los Muertos popular in Mexico, Latin America and other Spanish-speaking countries. New Mexico has always been an interesting mix of both Native tradition mixed with Spanish-influenced culture and practice. Even today, "All Souls Day' is celebrated in the Pueblos of New Mexico. We felt it would be beneficial as a learning unit to discuss the origins of the tradition and how it is celebrated in Mexico. As a learning unit, collectively each instructor will address the theme through a variety of learning activities.
