WME PTO has partnered with EduKit again this year to offer school supply kits for the 2018-2019 school year! An EduKit informational flyer will be sent home this week in backpacks. 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.

It is time again for the WME PTO parent survey. We need your input and feedback from this school year about our events and fundraising. Most importantly, we need your input on where we invests the money we raise. All responses are anonymous and we welcome all your thoughts and feedback. The information we receive helps guide us with our decisions for this year and next. Keep in mind that all events and programs that we are able to offer are dependent on the volunteers we have each year. Please click on the link below to take the survey – we would like all parents (moms AND dads) to please take the survey if possible. The survey will be open through May 11th for responses.
