Watkins Word

Parent Edition for Week of November 16 - November 20

Thanksgiving Break is November 23-27!

Canned Food Drive

We fed 170 families thanks to you and your children's generosity! The staff also raised $461 to donate to the Christian Care Center. Thank you so much!

Since we met our goal, Mrs. Speicher will proudly dance at this week's Wrangler Round up. Also, Kindergarten will receive a bounce house and popcorn party for feeding the most families. As soon as we have the date set, we will let you know!

If your child is participating in UIL, they will need to be at Birmingham Elementary at 3:30 p.m. on November 19th. The awards will be held at WEHS on the same night at 7:00 p.m.

If your child is a member of the UIL Writing team, they DO NOT have to come to Birmingham Elementary. Their competition will take place at Watkins during the day on November 17th. They will just need to attend the awards ceremony at Wylie East on November 19th at 7:00 p.m.

Wylie Way Christmas - Tags available on November 17th

We have an awesome opportunity to help families who are in need this Christmas. Watkins will be helping to buy Christmas gifts for about 50 WISD students. Pretty soon you will see a Christmas tree located in the foyer of our school. On this tree you will find tags that have a list of gifts (both wants and needs) for that particular child. Please consider taking a tag from the tree and making this Christmas special for a girl or boy in our community!

Don't forget that all flyers are now uploaded to Peachjar. You should receive an email when those flyers are posted. If you are not receiving any emails with our school flyers, you probably need to go to "manage preferences" in your Peachjar account and make sure your settings aren't set to "never".
