“State of the Campus” Presentation

Have you ever wondered how WBE is fairing with student achievement? What are WBE's goals? How can I as a parent best help my child achieve? Mrs. Eastlick will be providing a "State of the Campus" presentation to any interested parents on Thursday, November 12th beginning at 6:30 in the WBE cafeteria. Topics to discuss are:
  • State and Federal Accountability
  • WBE's current accountability rankings
  • WBE's areas for improvement
  • Tips for parents to partner with the school to achieve our goals

Toy Drive & Community Event

WBE is collecting new, unwrapped toys to be donated to the Toys For Tots campaign. This is a great opportunity to teach your child about the gift of giving to those in need.
