Thank you!

Thank you so much for the love and appreciation you showered onto the WBE staff last week! Every member of this staff impacts your child's life every day and to receive appreciation from you means so much.


The last PTA meeting on the school year is happening Tuesday, May 16 at 7:00. Come out and be a part of the discussion for wrapping up the year.

A big THANK YOU to the PTA for supporting our STAAR testers this week by providing a snack and water!

Field Day Thursday

We are all looking forward to a super fun field day on Thursday, May 18. Parents are invited to join us!

Be sure to dress your child in comfy active wear and athletic shoes and lather them up with sunscreen. Bring water!

Thanks again to our PTA and Ward Construction Services for covering a major amount of the costs for this fun day for our kids.

4th Grade Event Friday

It is tradition at WBE for the 4th graders to have a special day to celebrate the end of their elementary days and their readiness to "graduate" from WBE. PTA hosts this special event for our students. On Friday, the 4th graders will go to Urban Air in the morning and then to Lifetime Fitness for swimming in the afternoon. Have fun kiddos!
