Where the Wildcats Run 

We had an amazing Fun Run on Thursday! All the students worked so hard and had a great time on the field running and walking laps with their friends and teachers. And they all looked so great in their matching shirts and spirit items! Be sure to follow our Facebook page as we have posted pictures from the fun run. They ran an impressive amount of laps and we are so proud of our Wildcat students!

Total Laps Run: 8542
Total Miles Run: 1708.4
Average Laps per Student: 16.33
Average Miles per Student: 3.27

ALL donations are due THIS FRIDAY, September 28th in order to count for class and individual prizes. Parents and family members can donate with a flat donation, pay per lap, or a combination of both! Donations can be made by cash or check using the envelopes sent home in the packet or online using the link below. At this time, we are halfway to our goal!

If your student didn’t bring home their run bib from Thursday and you would like to know how many laps they ran, or if you have questions about donations, please email us.

We will have our fun run awards assembly on Wednesday, October 3rd at 2:30 pm. Parents are welcome to attend! We will announce all individual and class winners at that time.

THANK YOU Volunteers

A huge thank you to our Fun Run Committee and all the volunteers who helped throughout the day on Thursday to keep the fun run moving! We really couldn’t have done it without parents marking bibs, filling water, handing out Otter Pops and cheering the kids on. The kids really loved all that positive energy!

Also thank you to the parents who spent hours taking photos of the kids running laps! To those parents, please email them to Jory Hastings for the school yearbook. If they are from your SmartPhone/iPhone, please send in their original size and don’t reduce size for emailing. Thank you!

Chipotle Gift Cards and Restaurant Night

Please join us next Monday, October 1st for our Chipotle Restaurant Night at the Lone Tree location from 4:00 – 8:00 pm. Chipotle will donate 33% of your order back to WME PTO when you show them the flyer below when placing your order or tell them you are with WME! Online orders DO NOT count, you must order in-store.

In preparation for our October 1st Chipotle restaurant night, PTO is selling $25 Chipotle gift cards we purchased through the Scrip program. 10% of your gift card purchase will come back to WME! You may buy your gift card(s) in the office with cash or check or fill out the order form below and attach payment. Gift card orders will go home in Friday Folders this Friday, September 28th.

Gift cards do not have to be used on October 1st, they are just regular gift cards, so great to stock up if your family loves Chipotle or to buy for gifts! Please email Robin Williams with any questions.
