Tiger "Planks-giving" Calendars Due Tomorrow!

We hope you had a Happy "Planks-giving!"

Coaches Mirizzi and Clements invited all Tigers to give PLANKS and THANKS November 1 through November 30. Obtain your Planks-giving calendar here and print it so that your Tiger(s) can write on his/her/their calendar something or someone he/she is thankful for each day that your Tiger(s) complete that day's workout during the month of November.

Tigers are invited to return their completed Planks-giving calendars to Coaches Mirizzi and Clements on December 1.

Happy Planks-giving!

Our Clinic Needs Clothes for Tigers!

Sometimes our Tigers are studying so hard that they find themselves in need of a change of undies and/or pants/shorts/warmups to finish out their day of learning. Nurse Chapman is prepared for emergencies--including those that require a change of clothes.

Nurse Chapman reports that she is running really low on new and gently used undies and shorts/pants/warmups in sizes smaller than size 8. If you have undies and/or bottoms in sizes 5T to size 7 that you'd like to donate to help restock Nurse Chapman's cupboard, please feel free to drop them off on any school day.

WCHE PTO is Bringing us Penguin Patch Holiday Shopping

Tigers will love an opportunity to shop in secret for their loved ones who are on their shopping lists this holiday season. Our fabulous WCHE PTO is opening a Penguin Patch Holiday Shop on our campus so that Tigers can shop before school, during lunch, and recess. The shopping days are December 6 through December 10, and shopping hours are 7:30 am to 2:30 pm.

The Penguin Patch Holiday Shop offers affordable gifts that range in price from $0.25 to $12. There are personalized gifts for Mom, Dad, Grandma, Grandpa, and even Teachers! The goal is to give our Tigers a shopping experience where they surprise friends and family with special presents.

Students may pay for purchases with cash, checks, and Venmo to the WCHE PTO. The PTO will send home parent letters to provide additional information along with budget envelopes.

More information from our WCHE PTO is forthcoming! HO HO HO
