Induction Ceremony

Our first chapter of the WES Jr. Beta Club inducted its inaugural members on November 30th. We are extremely proud of these students and the hard work it took to receive this well deserved honor. The students will be participating in community service projects throughout the year and we know they will be an excellent representation of WES wherever they go. Congratulations on a job well done!

Who's Going to Win the Cabbage Growing Contest This Year?

The Bonnie Cabbage Program, alongside Farm Bureau, presented each of our 3rd graders with a cabbage plant to take home and grow as part of a statewide contest. The student in the state who grows the largest cabbage wins $1,000!! Last year, a student from Yulee Elementary, Ethan Jones, won $1,000 for his humongous cabbage! The students were excited to receive their plants and we can't wait to see how they are growing!
