January/February Update

Dear WRE Families,

We kicked off January with a fun "Get to know our staff" PTA meeting in January! Thank you to our wonderful staff who volunteered! We have such a wonderful staff…as I listened to their answers I reflected on how fortunate we are to have such a wonderful team of leaders surrounding our children everyday. Everyday they are cultivating a wonderful community atmosphere where our children continue to thrive. Many thanks to Melanie Rudebeck for putting our program together.

Thank you to our nominating committee - Courtney Halpin, Whitney Ragsdale, Jenny Tabor, Tiffany Towb, and Stephani Walne for their hard work in nominating the PTA Board Officers for next year. They are taking all of the board interest information that was submitted and finalizing next years slate. Once the officers are elected at the meeting February 18th, the new officers will work together to select the standing committee chairmen. If you are interested in a position please go to http://www.signupgenius.com/go/30e0d4cacac283-201617 and enter your contact information.

Our Teachers continue to appreciate all the hospitality throughout the year. Thank you to the Chaump Family for providing Jersey Mike's for our teachers in January.

Please plan on joining us on Thursday, February 18th for our short PTA meeting in the cafeteria at 6:30 followed by a Self Defense demonstration. Bring your whole family, because it is never to early to learn how to be mindful of your surroundings and safe in our community.

Valentine parties for all grade levels except kindergarten will be held Friday, February 12, from 1:45-2:30. For those parents that are helping with or attending the parties, we ask that you RSVP to the front office by February 10. You will pick up a badge on February 12 upon arrival. All room representatives will be admitted to the building beginning at 1:15 to set up for the parties.

Thanks to Kristin Waidler for her hard work putting together our weekly Seahawker! It is a big weekly commitment and I know we all appreciate her and her efforts to keep us informed about all we do at WRE!

As always, if you ever have any questions about anything PTA related, please feel free to email me at keelyjo1@me.com.

Happy Valentines Day!

Keely Smith

PTA President
