Principal Riley's Notes
Watonga Elementary Parent Monthly Newsletter 🦅
Happy 2023-2024 school year! As the Principal of Watonga Elementary, I would like to take this opportunity to keep you updated with what is going on at our school each month. The month of August flew by and September is already well under way. School pictures have already been taken, and beginning of the year assessments are almost completed. Before we know it, we will be discussing the end of year activities. So, happy reading for the month of September! #LearningIsRequired @ WES! Go Eagles!!
3rd Grade Parent Information Night
This night is an informative night for 3rd grade parents to understand the Reading Sufficiency Act and how it affects their child.

Watonga Elementary School-Gym
Artist in Residence
I am excited to announce that our students have an opportunity to now have Art Class once a week, taught by Oklahoma Artist, Laura Kent. Ms. Kent will be teaching students, PK-5. Adding this class does not take away from academic or PE/Music time, because students have always had Art once a week, taught by Mrs. Stein. The Artist in Residence program is a fully funded program through the Oklahoma State Department of Education. Enrichment activities, such as Art and STEM classes, help provide a well-rounded education to our students in Watonga. We will be showcasing student work, so stay tuned in for more information.
