If you are someone who enjoys social media, please consider "liking" our WES and SME Facebook pages. I am trying hard to post often about the exciting and cool things that go on at our schools. It is also a great place to see reminders about school events.

Home connection

I have recently gotten serious about chores at my house. My 6 year old, though whiny about it at times, is perfectly capable of doing many things! It gives him a great sense of responsibility AND is actually helpful (though I do sometimes redo them when he goes in the other room!)

What's New for the 2018-2019 School Year


Updated handbook!

We will be focusing on consistency between the two schools. A copy of the handbook will be sent home, but you can also access it online.
