We are Busy in October at WDES!
Deputy Molinares will offer the DARE program to our 5th graders!
Drug Abuse Resistance Education
“The Virginia D.A.R.E Association provides research and evidence based programs through training, outreach programs and advocacy.”
WDES is very excited to have the opportunity to offer this program once again to our 5th graders. Last year, Deputy England provided this to our school. We now have another one of our SROs trained to provide this program, Deputy Molinares!
Deputy Molinares had been working with Westmoreland County Public Schools for a few years now and has worked to become formally trained to handle many things such as providing DARE instruction. Deputy Moliares is housed at W&L High School during the day, but will visit WDES when she has the opportunity to do so! Our 5th graders are participating in this program beginning in October, 2019! We send our appreciation to Deputy Molinares for putting time in at WDES in this meaningful way!

Literacy Night at WDES on Oct. 7, 2019
During this event we voted in our new PTO Leadership Team! Our new team includes:
Jazmyne Monroe McNeill - President
Amanda Mitchell - Vice President
Candice Boyd - Secretary
Congratulations to all of our winners! We really appreciate all the parents who chose to run for an office! We are very excited about what this amazing group will do for Washington District students and families!
We also had Mr. Matthew Haddaway present information. He is the project manager for the solar panel project being installed on the roof of our building.. He provided lots of great information about solar power in general as well as just how much our school benefits from these panels! They will not only pay for the new roof, but they do not cost any money to the school or the county to install! We are very excited to be a part of this amazing project! Our students are great at asking questions about this project along the way! That means we not only see financial savings and benefits from the solar panels being installed, but we also see our students learning about solar power as a bonus! A huge thank you to Sun Tribe and Commonwealth Power for working with us!
Reading by the "fire"!
