Parent and Family Engagement Survey

The Parent and Family Engagement Survey is posted on our webpage. The window closes on September 3rd.

Brighter Bites is Back!

The Houston Foodbank will be offering its program, Brighter Bites again to the WAES families. Every parent of a WAES student can sign up to receive a box of produce. We have 2 distributions each month at 3:00 p.m. The produces will be distributed during dismissal through the car rider line. Please be patient with us as we work through this new process.

Woodland Acres Elementary PTA

Please consider joining our WAES PTA this year. The membership fee helps out with so many different programs at our school. For you convenience a letter and envelope was sent home. Also, the first classroom from each grade level that reaches 100% enrollment will win a pizza party. Thank you in advance for your cooperation and support of our PTA!
