Yearbook Committee

We are looking for photography-loving parents who would like to help take yearbook photos throughout the school year! It really is the best job! We need parents to take photos at school events, specials, recess, special school projects or classroom activities for the entire school. We are looking for a committee of parents to divide up these responsibilities for the yearbook. The Yearbook Committee takes photos of all students at Wildcat, and not just one class. If you are interested in having some photography fun and helping our amazing yearbook, please contact Jory Hastings .

Text Message Reminders

WME PTO is launching a new way to receive reminders and updates on events happening around school this year! We will use this more during the week instead of mid-week email reminders. You will still receive our Monday morning email blast filled with all the information you will need for the week too. There are two super easy ways to register for these text message reminders. 1. Visit the website (http://www.remind.com/join/wmept) and fill in your information OR 2. Text @wmept to 81010 We are excited about another way to connect with our WME community and think you will find these text message reminders very useful!

Skate City Night

Our first Skate City night will be Wednesday, August 30th from 6:00-8:00 pm. Mark your calendars! It will be a great evening of skating fun for just WME students, family and friends. Every skater will receive a free bookmark and there will be cool prizes for contest winners. Also, Skate City always donates a portion of the entrance fee back to the school! Don’t miss it!
