ORIGINAL WORKS: ORDER NOW!
This week your kids are coming home with their Original Works art and
order information. We moved our ordering online this year. So visit the Online Store.
Once you enter our school access code (wce), you'll be able to search
for your kids by their name or their teacher. Then you can browse
merchandise with their art printed on every item. To place an order you
will need the student ID number that is printed on the label attached to
A percentage of every order goes back to our school!! If everyone bought
just one magnet, we'd earn OVER $2,000! Might I recommend a few of my
There are about 35 items to choose from though, so shop today! The deadline to order is April 9! Merchandise will come straight to the school and will be sent home with kids in time for Mother's Day!
- A pillowcase: Your kids can enjoy their art every
day! Most of our kids did a self portrait, so it's kinda funny too -
sleeping on their own face!
- Youth T-Shirt: Also a funny item. Your kids' self-portrait on a shirt they can wear! They'll love it!
- Notecards: I ordered a set of 24 for each of my
kids. These are perfect for sending thank you cards and notes to family
throughout the year!
ORDER YOUR YEARBOOK BEFORE WE RUN OUT
We have now finished and submitted our yearbook design this year. Thank
you to everyone who submitted photos! If you have not already ordered a
yearbook, please do so ASAP. The price is $25 per book, and there are
two ways to purchase: 1) online at https://yearbookforever.com (there is a $2 service fee for online orders) or by cash or check with the attached order form.
Please make checks out to Westerly Creek PTA. We have already
committed to a print run, so be sure to get your order in before those
quantities run out! If we have any extras, we'll sell them in May when
we distribute orders.
KISS-AND-GO STARTS APRIL 14
Starting on April 14, our Kiss-and-Go system will be in effect for
morning drop-off only. Parents of ECE children will still need to park
and bring their kids to the classroom. Otherwise, any parents who want
to drop off their children can use the new Kiss-and-Go along E. 28th
Avenue. Watch today's Thursday folders and stay posted to this update
as the kickoff draws near for more detailed instructions.
We need your help! We need parent volunteers in the morning to help
open car doors, keep the Kiss-and-Go lane moving smoothly, and offer a
hand as kiddos get out of the cars. Your time commitment would be from
8:40 am til 9:05 am. Use our SlyReply to sign up
for as many mornings as your schedule allows. We need about 8
volunteers each morning. When you arrive on-site you will receive a
vest to identify you as a volunteer. You only need to wear it while
volunteering. Just return it to the office when you leave your post.
Want to volunteer but have younger kids? Consider getting a group of
five parents together to volunteer on a rotation. Together your crew
can sign up for an entire week and rotate out one parent each day to
help watch the little ones who need to tag along. We cannot do this
without everyone’s help and it’s critical to make sure our kids stay
If you have questions, please email Maggie Broadrick or Kim Lewis.
AUCTION CLOSEOUT SALE
The auction may be over but some goodies remain! Did you attend and
regret passing something by? There’s still a chance you could get it! If
you weren’t able to attend this year or to bid online, there is time to
get some really great and unique items. It’s our own “Auction Closeout
Sale!” To see what’s available, visit our online auction now!
Our paddle raiser during the live auction this year was directed at
closing the remaining gap for our fundraising goal for the year. We came
close but have a little way to go still. Please help us reach our goal!
Whether you purchase any of the remaining auction items or not, you may
still also make a direct donation toward closing the gap.
WCE wouldn’t be the awesome school it is without your support. Thank you
for all you do to make our children’s educational experience great!
SPRING BOOK FAIR: APRIL 14 - 18
