Hospitality House

PTO is once again offering families an easy, cost-effective way to show their appreciation and support for our specials teachers, office staff, educational specialists and assistants and additional staff members that are a critical part of our school. Please consider making a cash donation or purchasing one or more $5 gift cards to a business of your choice. Cash donations will be used to purchase $5 gift cards. Gift cards and donations may be placed in the “Hospitality House” located in the front office starting today and ending Wednesday, December 20th. The gift cards will be equally divided between staff members. Thank you!

WME Giving Tree

Every year during the holiday season, Wildcat Mountain Elementary comes together to help those in need. We do this by adopting families in our community and purchasing gifts for them. If you are willing to donate a gift, you can either sign up using the links below OR take a mitten off our Giving Tree in the school lobby. Please send the new & unwrapped gifts to WME no later than December 13th. Gifts can be placed in the designated boxes which will be located in the lobby. Please include with each gift: 1. A gift tag or a note labeling the recipient (ex: 8 yr old girl) 2. Family Number (ex: Family #100) 3. Gift receipt Thank you so much! WME and the Community Outreach Team

They will give back 0.5% of everything you purchase directly to WME PTO! Go to to get started and use that website every time you shop Amazon. It’s so easy!

Kindergarten Registration

Kindergarten registration for the 2018-2019 school year will start on December 5th and 6th. Spread the word to your friends and neighbors who will have incoming kindergartners! Please email our registrar Jamie Stoller  with any questions.

Yearbook Photos

If you have photos for the school yearbook from Halloween, field trips or class projects, we would love to have them! Either email photos directly to Jory Hastings or we can give password access to the yearbook dropbox to upload photos. Thanks so much!

Used Book Drive

We are still collecting used books through the end of this week, so clean out your old books and bring them to WME to donate! We will let our wonderful librarian, Mrs. Stickel, go through them first, then donate the rest.

Apple Award Nominations

Nominate an exceptional WME teacher or staff member (or both!) who is making a difference in your child’s life. It’s so simple and easy! Nominations are being accepted now through December 22nd using the link below. Let’s show our outstanding WME teachers the love! Apple Award Nominations

Box Tops

Visiting friends or family for the holidays? Ask them to save some Box Tops to donate to our school! May seem silly, but if each family could add 5 or 10 Box Tops to their collection we’d earn a ton of money! And it’s so simple. Want a new sheet to remind you to save Box Tops? Get one here. You can use either a baggie or a sheet printed from link above to send them in to school. Please don’t forget to add your STUDENT’S NAME AND TEACHER’S NAME. This round, Box Tops will be due January 16th for prizes.

Recycle Your Gallon Plastic Jugs

If you have gallon sized plastic jugs to recycle, please bring them to school and place them in the collection box in the front hallway. A former WME parent would like to use them to make luminaries to sell for Christmas and she will donate all the proceeds back to WME teachers! Make sure to please rinse them with hot soapy water before bringing them in. Thank you!

King Soopers Cards

Please remember to keep reloading your King Soopers cards. Every time you reload it, WME receives 5% of that amount! If you need a new card or would like to start participating in this program, you may purchase a $5 card in the school office. If you have any questions please contact Krista Finney .

Marquee Celebrations

WME would like to help you celebrate special moments with your child by offering a personalized slide on our WME outdoor marquee. For one day, a message to your child will be posted for all to see! This unique celebration is $20. If you have any questions, please contact Whitney  Marquee Celebration Flyer
