WCHE Family Fun Night

WCH owes a HUGE THANK YOU to our Family Fun Night Volunteers!!!!

WCH and the PTO would like to send a HUGE "Thank You" to Porter Vigil-Herring for running a successful Family Fun night!

Our students had a fantastic time bouncing in the bounce houses, listening to the DJ, running through the obstacle course, playing the games, getting their faces painted, posing for pictures with the teachers, winning cakes at the cake walk, spraying silly string, hammering with Home Depot, playing Connect 4 with Primrose, playing games with A Plus Credit Union, eating from food trucks (Chi'Lantro, Southside Flying Pizza, KONA) and winning fabulous prizes. It was a fun 2 hours spent hanging out with our WCH community. And we couldn't have done it without the hard work of our WCH parents/teachers:

Suzanne and Hank Kelbaugh - Alex and Ross Wagley - Kristin Brown - Jennifer Brenner - Madiha Marium - Michelle Burns - Michelle Vassar - Kelly Peters - Jessica Walker - Christy Gutt - Leslie Ragland - Barby Schmidt - Erika Martin - Sara Korzen - Donna Wright - Linda Holt - Donna Richardson - Jennifer Delmark - JoAnn Bryan - Amanda Prehn - Melanie Beninga - Alycen Fink - Carolyn Kearn- Katie Thompson - Cathy Seidenberger - Shannon Voges - Sherry Casey - Choi Hicks
