Papa John’s Give Back Day is Today!

Today, January 14th is our WME Papa John’s FUNdraiser! When you order from the Lone Tree location, 20% of your carry out or delivery order will be donated back to WME PTO – all day! You may order online, by calling 303-792-5252, or in store. And the classroom with the most participation will receive a FREE pizza party! Make sure to turn in your flyer or mention WME to receive credit.

If you know you will be ordering pizza from Papa John’s today, consider buying a Scrip gift card to use. Then 8% from Scrip and 20% from Papa John’s will be donated back to WME! Turn in your order form to the office by 10 am today to receive an E-Gift Certificate. Or you may contact Robin Williams if you’d like to order as well.

WME’s Polar Plunge Team

WME has a team participating in the Polar Plunge to benefit Special Olympics Colorado this year!  EVERYONE – staff, WME families, friends – are welcome to participate in the Plunge and/or make a donation. The more participants they have, the closer to the start line they get and the more donations they get, the better the prize for our team/school.

Each class will collect donations in their classrooms to go towards the event and the class that collects the most will receive a prize and the WME Pride Award! To sign up or make a donation online, please visit the Freezing Wildcat Heinies Team Page.
