Health and Wellness News

Hi WBE parents,

As we approach the end of Bully Prevention month next week - our school is going to wear Blue on Monday (October 30th) to show that WBE is a Bully Free Campus!


At home, we can model behaviors of kindness, compassion, and empathy for our children. The examples of kindness we set for them will hopefully follow them for a lifetime.


Check out what a clinical psychologist from Cook Children's has to say about the importance of teaching our kids those attributes.

Media Madness - Monday 11/6

WBE PTA will be hosting the Texas PTA Program MEDIA MADNESS on Monday, November 6th at 6:00pm at WBE. "Television, i-Pods, i-Pads, laptops and smart-phones…Today’s kids are exposed to an average of seven hours of “screen-time” each and every day, and the impact of those media messages can shape many of their perceptions and actions. Media Madness provides parents and caregivers the tools to successfully manage their children’s “screen time”, effectively monitor media messages and content, and realistically modify your approach as children grow and technology advances."

Picture Retakes - Tuesday 11/7

If your child was absent on original picture day or his/her picture didn't turn out great, there is an opportunity for a retake on Tuesday 11/7.
