Explorer Express 2019 Summer Edition

To all of our New and Returning Weatherstone Families,

We hope that you are having a safe, relaxing, fun-filled summer with your families.  As we continue to prepare for the 2019-2020 school year we wanted to share a few announcements with you.


"New to School" Summer Playdates


Families with students new to the school are welcome to join school staff and the PTA at our two Summer Playdate opportunities.  The first one is tomorrow August 5th from 4:00-6:00PM and the second one is on August 12th at 10:00AM-12:00PM (If it rains we will cancel the event with an announcement on our website.)  This is open to students in all grades.  The playground will be open and there will be a chance to meet PTA representatives and school staff to answer any questions about the upcoming year.


Supply Lists are Posted Online


The 2019-2020 school supply lists are posted on our website at  Supplies ordered from the PTA at the end of the year will be delivered to the classrooms at the Meet the Teacher Event.
