Field Day Fast Pass

Field Day is Friday April 26th! 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.

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

Also, because we are also hosting the Senior Walk event that Friday morning, please do not arrive at WBE until after 8:30am on Field Day. The Senior event will be over by then and parking available.

Playground Update

Our playground areas are 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.

MISD School Board Elections

All residents of MISD are encouraged to participate in the voting process by becoming informed of the candidates for these positions and letting your voice be heard by casting your vote.
