Welcome Back!

We have had a great first few weeks back to school. We have greatly appreciated all of our families patience and cooperation as we have worked through parent pick-up procedures, child transportation plans, and delayed buses as we learn the new routes. The reason our School is so aWESome is because of the kids and families we get to work with. Thank you for a great start to the 2021-2022 School Year!

End-of-Day Transportation

Improving Reading @ Home

One way is to read out loud to your child for 10-15 minutes per day. Reading to your child is beneficial in many ways. It exposes him/her to vocabulary he/she might not get otherwise. This helps strengthen reading comprehension. When you read aloud:

1. Define unfamiliar words.

2. Give examples of how a word's meaning can change depending on how it is used in the sentence (ex. pet can be a noun or a verb).

It is my honor to serve you in this position and continue to make WES the "place to be".
