EduKit Supply Kit Orders

WME PTO has partnered with EduKit again this year to offer school supply kits for the 2018-2019 school year! Orders with EduKit are online only. PTO offers this service as a convenience to families to save time and money. Supply packs are delivered to the school with free shipping if you order by June 10th and will be in your child’s classroom at Meet and Greet on August 8th. If you place your order between June 11th and July 14th, your kits will include an extra fee and be shipped to your house. Headphones are a required school supply item for all students. They may be purchased through EduKit for an additional $10 (great price for the quality), you may reuse yours from this year, or buy some on your own. If you have any questions, please contact Michele Dutcher . EduKit Online Ordering

Event Committees for Next Year

Interested in joining a committee and helping us fundraise or plan an event next year? We are looking for some new people to join our Fun Run, Book Fair, Wildcat Bazaar, Father Daughter Dance, Mother Son Event, Donation Requests, and Wildcat Garden committees!

We are also looking for one or two people to be our DVD Coordinator next year. The more people we have on each committee, the less work for everyone involved!

Committee positions are not PTO Board members and are an easy way to get involved with a small job on PTO to help out our amazing school! Use the Sign Up Genius link below to sign up.
