Maverick Message for September 1, 2023


Clothing Drive: We have decided to start this year out strong with a clothing drive run by some of our students. We will be working with a non-profit organization called Note in the Pocket, which was founded by a teacher who wanted to  provide for less fortunate students by providing them with clothing to protect them from the cold weather. She sent each kindergarten student home with a donated jacket or sweater with a note in the pocket explaining that the garment was for the child to keep. With this, the Note in the Pocket foundation was born. We at WECIB want to be able to continue this tradition and support less fortunate students by donating clothes that we no longer need. Remember, in situations like these, a little goes a long way. More details will be provided in the daily slideshow and through posters that will be hung throughout the school. 


Purchase a Yearbook: Yearbooks are on sale starting at $40 (personalization is additional). The cost will increase in October so act now to get in on the lowest price. Use this link to purchase. 


Junior Parent Night Virtual Meeting: Thursday, October 12 at 6:00 pm. Junior parents will review post-secondary options and steps to take to reach the post-secondary goals for their child. The meeting will be held virtually.
