Patriot Day Ceremony - Sept. 12 @ 8:15

It is a proud tradition at WBE to hold a Patriot Day Ceremony each year on 9/11 (or as close to it) to honor those who keep us as American's safe. Our students gather outside at the flagpole to sing and pay their respects.


We invite the WBE community to join us in this ceremony. Most importantly, we invite anyone in our community who actively serves OR who formally served our country as POLICE, FIRE, MEDICAL, and/or MILITARY personnel. We want you to come and stand in a place of honor so that our children and community can honor you for your service.


Please pass on the invite to anyone in your family or friends who can attend.


Monday, September 12th - 8:15 around WBE flagpole.
