It’s hard to believe we are over halfway through the school year, and spring is hopefully right around the corner! We have a few events coming up and we need support from our PTA members to help with our continued success.

– March 12th will be our 4th General PTA Meeting of the year at 7pm in the WCES Media center, childcare for WCES students will be provided. We will be having a local nutritionist come to make a presentation about our children’s eating habits and some delicious, well-balanced school lunch ideas. Look for a flier to be coming home soon with more information!

– Science Fair projects will be on display at school on March 22nd for students and there will be a family event that evening for WCES community viewing and an awards presentation.
