Field Day Information

WBE Field Day is scheduled for Friday, April 26th. This is a favorite day for many students and staff! Information about field day, t-shirt orders, concessions orders, and volunteer opportunities went home with students this week. You can find links to all of this information below.

T-Shirt Orders due 3/29: In order for us to get field day t-shirts ordered and delivered in time for the big day, we must have all orders turned in no later than Friday, March 29th. Field Day T-Shirt Order Form

Concessions Orders due 4/10: All students will receive a free ice pop on field day, thanks for PTA. Students have the option to pre-order concessions. Field Day Concessions Order Form

Volunteer Form due 4/15: We are in need of volunteers to help make our field day a huge success! Please consider helping a portion of the day. A complete and clear MISD background check is required. Field Day Volunteer Form

Parents are invited to visit during Field Day. NEW THIS YEAR...All visitors must check in and receive a visitor's badge to wear throughout their time on campus. Our fast pass system has worked well, so we will use that again for field day. If you anticipate attending field day at all, please register for a fast pass no later than April 24th. By registering, your badge will be pre-printed and ready for you to pick up by showing your ID when you arrive. Register for Field Day Fast Pass

Playground Update

Soon WBE playground areas will be under construction! As part of the MISD 2017 Bond Program, new playground equipment, shade structures and synthetic play-surface at all elementary and intermediate schools are being installed. It will definitely be a challenge for us as we work around this, but the end results should be amazing! Our teachers will still provide recess time outside for our students to run and play.
