Top 20 Training begins Dec. 2

WDC Schools will begin Top 20 Training on Dec. 2 with students and parents. Please take a moment to watch this video to learn more about this empowering program!

On Dec. 2,  the goal of this day is to help all WDC Wolverines think about their positive and negative thoughts and how they affect us every day, said Laura Kiser, WDC social worker. 

"We will be taught common sense strategies that will help us live up to our potential and help make a positive difference in our own lives and the lives of others," explained Kiser.

On Wednesday evening, from 6 to 8 pm, all parents/guardians are invited to attend the Top 20 parent session at the Wadena Memorial Auditorium. A free meal will be served from 5 to 6 p.m. in the WDC Elementary Cafeteria. Please join us!


Due to a Staff Development Day, there will be no school for students on Wednesday, Nov. 25. Also, enjoy your Thanksgiving holiday on Nov. 26 and 27 too! Classes will resume on Monday, Nov. 30!
