National PTA Healthy Lifestyles Month

It's almost NOVEMBER and that means it's National PTA Healthy Lifestyles Month. Last week, your student should have come home with Bingo card and explanation and rules. We want to encourage our Wildcats and their families to celebrate this month and participate with a little BINGO fun.


Healthy Students make Better Learners. And we want to help you set your child up for success. Be sure to print our Healthy Lifestyles Bingo Card and get moving! Don't forget to snap a pic of your family marking off your bingo card with #WSES2019Bingo

Volunteers Needed

Studies have shown that parental involvement in a child's education is one of the most important factors in raising student self-esteem and academic achievement. We realize that each of our families is unique with its own priorities, needs, talents, and time constraints, so we provide many opportunities for parental involvement.
