Veteran's Breakfast

We enjoyed hosting our hometown heroes last Monday for a Veteran's Breakfast. Our Boy Scouts presented the flag and led the group in The Pledge of Allegiance. Several students shared a poem. We are so thankful for the contribution and sacrifice of our veterans. #YouMatter

#CharacterCounts Focus

Throughout the year we'll be focusing on the 8 C's that are part of Northern's Profile of a Graduate. These are traits that our District believes students need to develop prior to graduating from high school. The 8 C's include creativity, communication, critical thinking, collaboration, contributing, courage, competency, and conscientiousness.


We'll begin in November focusing on conscientiousness. We'll use the mentor text, The Lorax to help make this trait practical and visible for the students.

This Week's ROAR Ticket Winners!

Coming Home Via the Backpack

Box Tops for Education

Wellsville Elementary collects Box Tops. We have a box in our lobby for the Box Tops all year long. During the months of October and February, our PTO organizes Box Top Drives where students can earn prizes for the greatest amount of Box Tops collected. WES PTO is able to "cash in" these Box Tops for playground balls, jump ropes, and other items to support our students at recess.

Amazon Smiles and WES

Did you know that you can help WES PTO every time you shop at Amazon? Through their Amazon Smiles program you can designate WES PTO to receive a percentage of your Amazon sales. This is super easy and does not impact any of your sale prices or discounts. Next time you shop Amazon, consider supporting WES as well!

Giant A+ Rewards

Support WES while shopping at Giant. Whether at the customer service desk at the store or by going online, you can link your Bonus Card to Wellsville. By doing this, Giant will donate a percentage of your sales to Wellsville Elementary. This does not have any impact on your gas points or other rewards through the store. Each year this link needs to be re-established for donations to occur. Thanks for taking the time to do this!

Rutters Rewards for Schools

Rutters offers that you can link your rewards card to a school and a percentage of the sales you make will be donated to that school. This does not impact the price of gas or any rewards you may accrue. Please consider going online, through the app, or in the store to select Wellsville Elementary as your school of choice and help donate to Wellsville as you shop! The selection of school is only good for a quarter of the year. It's time to log back in and re-allocate your support for Wellsville!!
