A Note from Dr. Reynolds

WBE Families,

We want to thank our WBE families for all your support over the last two weeks as our 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade students have taken TCAP. We are excited about the month of May; we are heading in the home stretch with only a few weeks of school left. We have many exciting events for all. (see detailed explanation of events in this newsletter). A few events for our families include field day, 4th grade Wax Museum, One Book One School, Stem Showcase, and class parties the last day of school. We look forward to seeing you soon.

We would also like to thank all of our parent volunteers in the lunchroom. We love having such a supportive community.

Student Shout Outs

We are so excited to recognize students going above and beyond expectations. Teachers write shout-outs to students going above and beyond. Every Wednesday, a shout-out is chosen from each house. The students get to come to the front office and spin a wheel of house points on the announcements. Here are our exceptional students that have earned house points for their teams so far.
