All for Books

Every year during the book fair, WME families come together to donate spare change or dollars towards Scholastic’s All for Books program. With the money we receive, PTO is able to buy books for WME classrooms and for the library! Then Scholastic matches that amount and donates books to classrooms in need as well.

Every teacher has an envelope to collect All for Books money starting today through Friday, November 16th, or you can donate directly at the book fair. The top 3 donating classrooms will receive six books of the teacher’s choice AND a classroom cookie party! Thanks for your participation in helping us get more books in the hands of children!

Community Outreach Team Food Drive

Wildcat Mountain and the Community Outreach Student Leadership Team invite you to help us give back to our community. They are hosting a food drive for Catholic Charities Food Bank in Castle Rock November 9th – 15th. This year, they are collecting their TOP Emergency Food Needs.  Of course, you may donate any non-perishable items, but to support their top needs, we are asking each grade level to bring in specific items.

Kindergarten:  Granola Bars & Crackers
1st Grade:  Cereal & Oatmeal
2nd Grade:  Tuna & Canned Chicken
3rd Grade:  Peanut Butter & Jelly
4th Grade:  Pasta & Pasta Sauce

All food will be collected in the classrooms. Thanks so much for helping those in need.
