Two WEB Events Scheduled For Tuesday

WAYNE – The Wayne Elementary Boosters will have a busy Tuesday, October 9 ahead of them with morning presentations and a fundraiser event in the evening.

From the Wayne Elementary School, world explorer and Fremont-native Dean Jacobs will return to share his two-month journey. He recently followed the Mississippi River for 2,300 miles from its source to its mouth in a program called, “Wondrous Mississippi.”

According to a release, students in kindergarten through sixth grade will get to experience the beauty of the nature, the depth of the history and the inspiring people of this historic and vital river.

Presentations will be broken down into two assemblies for students, along with a small group having lunch with Jacobs and a writing workshop for specific grades to be conducted.

Parents are welcome to attend the hour-long presentations for grades K-2  at 8:10 a.m. and grades 3 – 6 at 9:25 a.m.

WEB is proud to sponsor this event, marking the sixth visit for Dean Jacobs to Wayne Elementary. For more information about Jacobs, visits

Wayne Elementary Boosters is a parent-teacher organization working to promote the educational growth and well-being of their elementary school children.

Moving into Tuesday evening, WEB will host Runza Night. The event will last from 5 – 8 p.m. where the Wayne Runza will donate 15% of all sales (dine-in, carry-out or drive-thru) directly to Wayne Elementary.

Last year, over $1,000 was raised from the two Runza Nights.

The school uses funds to support resources such as the One School One Book program and classroom supplies. Wayne Elementary staff will be volunteering in the dining room as always.
