September 8, 2023: Upcoming Activity Opportunities
Dear WES Parents,
Today was our first week with all of our students on campus. The excitement and enthusiasm for the new year continues to be evident!
Spirit Day Friday, September 15th
Ready to LIGHT UP the new school year? Wear your boldest and brightest colors FRIDAY to show your WES School Spirit. #BrightBeginnings
Thank you for your partnership with carpool. Our dismissal times have steadily decreased all week. Remember, it is right turn only when leaving our carpool line. Students should generally know how they are going home each day. If a change does need to be made, please let us know by 3:00 pm so we can make sure the students go to the proper place.
