Lost & Found is Leaving February 1
It is time to purge unclaimed items in our red bins. If you think your child may have left/lost something, please have your child check. You may stop in to check lost/found but please wear a mask. Labelling your child's belongings is very much appreciated.
Beginning Orchestra for WE 4th Graders
Help your child build motivation, self esteem, boost thinking skills, foster well-being, and build skills for the future. Join orchestra to do all that while having fun making music together.
---> Fourth graders will be introduced to orchestra instruments during the next couple of music classes. Click here on beginning orchestra for more information.
Beginning January 19, the school will not wash your child's masks daily like we had in the hybrid learning model. Please be certain to send your child with a clean mask every day. The health office has extra masks available too.
Drinking fountains are turned off in the building; however, we do have two water bottle filling stations. Please have your child bring a clean water bottle daily. If a student forgets a water bottle, we do provide a disposable cup for the day.

Passes were distributed to those students who purchased them through registration or at a later time. It is a requirement that these activity passes be shown for admittance to each home athletic event. Students without activity passes will need to pay to get in to the event. State-sponsored post-season athletic events (i.e. playoff/tournament games) always require payment for admittance for ALL students. If you purchased one for your WE student and did not find one in the child's backpack, please contact the office.
