A Note from Dr. Reynolds

We are so excited to have our children back at WBE. It has been an excellent first month and we look forward to a great year. We are working daily to ensure your children are happy, healthy, and safe while at school. We are also making efforts to make up for lost instruction due to Covid. Thank you for your ongoing support and cooperation as we work to make this the best year yet. Please feel free to reach out to Mrs. Anglin or me with any questions or concerns.

House Reveal

Friday, August 28th, we had our house reveal for new students and kindergarteners. They had a blast. We spent this time going over what each house means and the expectations for our Mustangs. Part of these expectations included the Burrus Big 10 and 7 Habits of Happy Kids.

STEM Update

This year's school wide theme is "Grow Where You are Planted." We have many exciting STEM activities planned this year including growing our own fruit and vegetable gardens from seed to table. We have four hydroponic gardens that each grade level band will be responsible for growing and maintaining. We also have grade level and school wide STEM challenges. Below are pictures of some of the work our fifth grade students have already completed. Check out those awesome STEM shelves too!
