Every skater will receive a free bookmark and if we get 130 skaters there, Skate City will give $100 to the teacher with the most students attending! Also, Skate City always donates a portion of the entrance fee back to the school! Don’t miss it!

Classroom Yearbook Volunteers Needed

The yearbook is in need of parent volunteers in several of our classrooms. A yearbook volunteer just takes photos at class parties and/or field trips during the year, and then submits for the yearbook to be included on the class page. Each class has their own page of photos and most of the photos are typically submitted by parents. It is a very light commitment and does not require a huge amount of photos. If you can help in one of the classes below, please contact Jory Hastings . Pictures from SmartPhones/iPhones are acceptable for print. Buckland (K) Cordova (1st) Wright (K/1st) Christensen (2nd) Messmer (2nd) Shankle (3rd) Church (4th) Estes (4th) Beal (5th) Moore (5th)

King Soopers Cards Available

Please remember to reload your King Soopers cards. Every time you reload it, WME receives 5% of that amount! When your card has a $0 balance for one month, it will become inactive. If your card has become inactive or you would like to buy a new card, we have $5 cards available in the school office. Bring $5 cash or a check made out to WME PTO. If you have any questions please contact Krista Finney .
