WCHE Names Kristi Gilbert November Volunteer of the Month

With all of the excitement of the APEX Fun Run, Cupcake Fridays, and other classroom activities, the WCHE staff sees the extra work our wonderful volunteers do for us to make these fun events happen....as if by magic!


One of these hard-working volunteers who made the APEX Fun Run possible is the Chair of the APEX Fun Run, Kristi Gilbert. And that's just one of the reasons why the WCHE staff selected her as our Volunteer of the Month for the month of November.


Kristi is the homeroom parent for two different classrooms and spends a good deal of her time decorating and making WCHE a great place to be. Kristi also serves as our PTO Vice President of Fundraising.



Congratulations, Kristi, and many thanks for all that you do for us!

Volunteers Needed During Lunch Time

WCHE student lunches begin at 10:45 and end at 1:10. We'd love to have volunteers come in to assist students with opening their drinks, opening condiment packages, passing out plastic-ware and napkins, etc. If you're looking for something fun to do any time between 10:45 and 1:10, please sign up here. Thanks!

Fall Photo Retakes November 15

Student Fall photo retakes will be made Wednesday, November 15. To schedule a photo retake on November 15, provide the student's name, grade, and teacher here.
