SPIRIT WEAR | ORDER NOW
 

Spirit Wear is now available for purchase!  If you place your order by Sept 12th, your spirit wear will be delivered to your child's classroom on the first day of school! Orders placed after July 11th will have a later delivery date.  When you order, select your child's teacher from the drop down menu.  If you don't know your child's teacher, that's okay.  There's an option for you to select at the bottom of the drop down menu.  Each grade has a designated color and students can wear their shirts anytime, but especially for field trips and during Field Day at the end of the year.  Let's get into the Wolf Den spirit! 
For more information about spirit wear contact Cathy Kautzman.















WOLF DEN WELCOME | AUG 21st | 4 - 6 PM | WCE PLAYGROUND
Join us for the Wolf Den Welcome, our back to school social event where all the kids can meet their teachers before the start of school.  Follow the color coded flags to find your teacher by grade.  ECE meets on the playground on the far east side of the school.  We look forward to seeing all our new and returning families for this fun-filled event!  Note to Parents:  Look for PTA members throughout the event to find out how you can become a member of the PTA.  You will have the opportunity to sign up for membership on-site, receive your membership and King Soopers grocery cards, sign up for volunteer opportunities, and join the Family Directory!

EDUKITS

Do you dread the thought of back-to-school shopping? Wish there was a convenient, easy, and often less expensive option? Then you need an EduKit school supply kit! Order by June 6 for the “Early Bird” discount and free shipping. Your child’s supplies will be delivered to the classroom prior to the beginning of school in bundles for each classroom, to provide the teachers an opportunity to get set up and be ready to go on the first day. 

ORDER NOW: Visit EduKit’s website, select the grades and quantities you need and pay online through EduKit’s secure website. Easy. Done! Or you can  download the order form and return it to the school by June 6 with checks made payable to Westerly Creek Elementary. Do it now! You'll be glad you did. Early Bird shipping means you won’t even have to deliver the supplies to school – EduKit does that for you. PLUS $5 from every kit comes back to our school!
