2nd Grade Music Program

Our 2nd Grade Music Program is on Tuesday, March 21st at 5:30 pm. We can't wait to showcase our 2nd grade's great musical talents!

Door #1 (south doors of WES) will open at 5:10 pm.

Student Drop-Off and Pick-Up

Please remember these three tips when you are picking up and dropping off in our Parent Pick-Up/Drop-Off Line:

1.) All students need to enter your vehicle from the passenger side.

2.) Please stay in your vehicle. If your child needs assistance with loading and fastening their seatbelts, please pull into a parking space and walk to the sidewalk so we can get your child to you.

3.) When our doors open in the morning, please be ready to have your child exit your vehicle and walk into school, once you are parked along the curb.

These 3 tips help make our drop-off and pick-up lines run quick and efficient. This is key to everyone's safety with our school's proximity to the highway! Thank you so much!

Dismissal Info.

REMINDER: Please call the office if you need to make a change for your child's regular dismissal transportation. For example: You will be picking your child up rather than riding the bus home. Please DO NOT message your child's teacher on Class Dojo. We want to make sure the message gets to your child and your child's teacher. Please call in at 219-956-3221. Please call in before 1:00 pm. Thank you!
