ALL FOR BOOKS/BOOK FAIRY:  Donate to our All For Books fund which collects money to help get books in the hands of as many Weatherstone students as possible.  If you would like to donate to the All for Books program for WES students who can’t afford to purchase a book at the book fair donations can be made to the following eWallet.  While it will state that it is for grade Kindergarten the funds will be used for all students across grade levels at WES.
