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

Closed Campus May 13/14

On STAAR testing days, WBE will be a closed campus...meaning no visitors will be allowed in for lunch, volunteering, or visiting classrooms. Please plan around the following dates:

Monday, May 13 - STAAR Math

Tuesday, May 14 - STAAR Reading

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.
