WES Title I Program

Interested in learning more about our Title I Program at Wheatfield Elementary School?


Stop by our Title I Room in the 1st & 2nd Grade Hallway and meet Mrs. Hazlett, our Title I Teacher, to learn more before or after your child's Parent-Teacher Conference.

Thank You, Mrs. Jones!

Mrs. Simone Jones will be retiring this month. On Wednesday, November 10th she will walk in our doors one last time after 34 years with Kankakee Valley School Corporation. We will never truly know how much of an impact she had on so many lives, but as for our WES Family, we will be losing a great asset to our Staff, Students, and Community. We wish Mrs. Jones all the best as she enjoys all that retirement offers!

Parent Pick-Up

A reminder that we dismiss at 3:25 PM for Parent Pick-Up. Due to safety concerns with traffic backing up to the highway, we begin releasing students 3-5 minutes before our scheduled dismissal of 3:25 PM for Parent Pick-Up Students. We are asking for your assistance with arriving to pick-up your child closer to 3:25 PM. This will prevent the line from backing up into the highway. Your assistance with this request is very much appreciated!

Green Screen Studio

We want to thank the Jasper County Retired Teachers Association and the Jasper-Newton Foundation for awarding us a Grant of $150 to purchase the equipment for our VERY OWN Green Screen Studio. We are so excited to see what our Staff and Students produce with this new piece of technology and equipment!

Christmas Angel Tree

WES is working with several local businesses & organizations to provide Christmas Gifts to families in need. If you are in need of assistance this Christmas and would like to receive some gifts for your children, please contact Mrs. Konja, our Social Worker.
