Here is the agenda for the WMS Community Council Meeting tonight at 5:00 at Wayne Middle School. Community members are welcome to attend.

Mrs. Stringham’s 7th grade Utah Studies class recently learned all about mining in Utah! We decided to “mine” for ourselves, and we spent a class period delving into some chocolate chip cookies, searching for the hidden “gold” (chocolate chips). It was a lot of fun, and some of the miners really got “paid,” some lost it all, but we all enjoyed the sweet treats at the end.

LOVE, VALENTINES, AND COVID
By Timber Giles

There are many things that people think of when they hear the word love.

One big thing is Valentine's Day. They do things like go on dinner dates, dance, watch the sunset, and get gifts like chocolate, hearts, flowers, and more.

On this day people get gifts and spend time with the person they love. (Although single people lay in bed all day and cry or throw things at people on dates!)

Let's just say Valentine's Day is a big thing to many, many people. 

This year is going to be different from all the other years. Couples want to go to a restaurant, or go to a dance, or just go in public. They can't do the things they usually do, due to Covid-19 restrictions.

This relates to wearing masks, closing public places, social distancing, and many other things. So they just have to make the best out of a bad situation. 

Our school does Valentine's Tea, and we can't do it exactly like we did the past years. We have to wear masks and not have any or very little slow dances. We also can't dance in big groups, mostly line dances.

Love is a big thing to people so let's say COVID has changed a lot about it this year.
