Panera Bread Scrip Gift Cards.

In preparation for our February 7th Panera Bread restaurant night, PTO is selling $25 Panera Bread gift cards we purchased through the Scrip program. 8% of your gift card purchase will come back to WME! You may buy your gift card(s) in the office with cash, check or credit card, or fill out the order form below and send to the office with payment.

Gift cards do not have to be used on February 8th, they are just regular gift cards, so great to stock up if your family loves Panera or to buy for gifts! Please email Robin Williams with any questions.

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. The Polar Plunge will be held at Aurora Reservoir on February 23rd at 12:00 noon.

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.

If you have any questions please contact Rose Martinez or Beth Anderson.
