EDUKITS | ORDER YOUR 2015-2016 SCHOOL SUPPLIES EduKit School Supplies orders can now be placed for the 2015-16 school year! When you order your supplies from EduKit, a portion of the proceeds comes back to our school. If you prefer not to go shopping, this is a convenient way to get school supplies and it benefits WCE! Extended on-line orders can be placed from Jun 11- Aug 6 and will be shipped directly to your home. EduKits saves you time and headache AND it earns money for our school. Get all the details on the EduKit page of the PTA website.
WHAT IS DIRECT GIVING? Direct Giving is one of the most important ways the PTA makes a difference at our school. The money raised during this fundraising campaign is a large part of the PTA's grant to the school each year, helping "fund the gap" between the funds received from DPS and the money the school receives from the school district and the amount of money we need to operate our budget. This money keeps paraprofessionals in the classrooms, interventionists in the school, provides the school with updated technology in all of the classrooms, and much more!
IT'S EASY: Attend an upcoming direct giving event OR donate online here via a one-time donation or arrange for monthly payments (auto-pay).
HELP WANTED: BUILDING A NEW PTA SITE The Communications Committee for the next school year is already hard at work! We have a goal to re-design the PTA website. If you are able to donate your time or skills, it would be greatly appreciated! Please contact or Wendy Barclay at email@example.com.

WITH SYMPATHY | STEIG FAMILY As you may know, our WCE family lost Megan Steig to brain cancer. Megan was the wife of James and mom to Parker (2nd grade) and Keaton (kindergarten). Megan will be deeply missed and we are grieved by our loss. We truly believe her infectious spirit will live on.
As a WCE Community, we want to offer our support to James, Parker & Keaton, so there are opportunities to provide meals or financial support for the family.
