The Wall of Fame for Shoe Tying for Kindergarten, 1st, and 2nd Graders

If your Kinder, 1st Grader, and/or Second Grader can tie his/her shoes, please notify Coaches Mirizzi & Mayes because they want to honor this accomplishment in the school gym on our WALL OF FAME FOR SHOE TYING!!!!!


Once notified of the student's successful shoe-tying accomplishment, we will provide your student with a paper shoe to color, take the student's photo, and then post the photo and customized paper shoe on our WALL OF FAME FOR SHOE TYING!!!!!!


It's going to be really exciting to see our young Tigers on the WALL OF FAME FOR SHOE TYING!!!!!

Brrrrrr! It's cold, and wet, and we may have all of your coats!

Our Lost & Found is running over with all manner of lovely sweaters, sweatshirts, and coats. We also have lots of water bottles, lunch boxes, and even eyeglasses.


If you are missing any of your worldly goods, please stop by and check our Lost & Found. It could well be that your missing items are here. Thanks!

Play WCHE Book BINGO! Keep On Reading On, Tigers@

Our school-wide reading program is called Book BINGO!

Tiger Art

Art Newsletter from Mrs. Dunn

Art teaches students problem solving, diversity, visual learning, motor skills, focus, and confidence. It is valuable to the learning process and plays a large role in developing cognitive and social skills. Art promotes innovative thinking and creativity.


We are pleased to report that our Tigers have learned much about the history of art in this first semester of the school year. They have studied famous artists and great artwork. Below are links to provide more information about each grade's artwork and progress made during this first semester of school.
