News Updates from the PTO

Congratulations to Alison Craighead and Karen Bryant! They are the lucky winners from our WCHE Spirit Wear drawing held during our October 19 PTO meeting. We were fortunate to have Dr. Lancaster as a special guest speaker at that meeting. Congratulations, Alison and Karen, and many thanks to all who came!


Thank you, too, to everyone who supported our school through the APEX Fun Run. We had such a great day. It was filled with excitement. The three classes with the highest donations are:


1. Mrs. Ali's Class

2. Ms. Wells' Class

3. Ms. Brymer's Class


Every WCHE teacher receives 10% of their class' donations to purchase things for their classes.

Attention Volunteers!

If you put in some of your hours outside of school, you can log your hours! Contact Becky Wright in the front office and she'll get you set up!

More Volunteers Needed in Cafeteria at Lunch Time

WCHE student lunches begin at 10:45 and end at 1:10. We'd love to have volunteers come in to assist students with opening their drinks, opening condiment packages, passing out plastic-ware and napkins, etc. If you're looking for something fun to do any time between 10:45 and 1:10, please contact Melanie Beninga. Thanks!

October 31 - Storybook Character Dress Up Day & Special Student Assembly 7:30 am

Everyone was invited to dress up as their favorite storybook characters and wear their costumes to our special student assembly in the gym at 7:30 am October 31. Because we held our assembly October 31, we will not be having our normal Friday assembly November 3. Students will be sharing their books with their class along with their costumes.


For the comfort and safety of all no masks, weapons, blood, gore, clowns, or anything scary was encountered. We wanted everyone to feel safe and to have fun.

Return to Central Standard Time November 5

Fall back one hour on November 5. Daylight Saving Time ends at 2:00 am Sunday morning.

Fall Photo Retakes November 15

Student Fall photo retakes will be made Wednesday, November 15. To schedule a photo retake on November 15, provide the student's name, grade, and teacher here.


If you have not already purchased your photo package, you may do so at any time through November 19 at mylifetouch.com. Our school's picture day ID is JD177045Y1.


And, if you've already paid for photos and just want to exchange your first photos for retaken photos, simply let us know that you want the photos retaken and return the original photo package to the photographer on November 15.
