Volunteers Needed!

We are still looking for volunteers to share their cultures at WBE’s Multicultural Night on February 23rd. We will have tables with food, artifacts, crafts and more at the event to showcase the diversity of the school. However, we can’t make that possible without your help!!


Please consider signing up to help at the event. Anything you can do will be very much appreciated. Below is the link to sign up. If you are unable to access the link, please let your child’s teacher know you are interested!
