PTO Newsletter 9/18

Thank you to our amazing and generous WME community! We have reached our fundraising goal of $40,000! The exact amount raised will be revealed at the Awards Assembly on Wednesday, September 20th at 3:00 pm. All students and teachers will attend and parents are welcome to come as well. At this assembly, we will announce all the awards for individual and class prizes. We will still take donations if you have envelopes to turn in or you may still donate online . Every dollar counts toward filling teacher and classroom wish lists! Since we reached our goal, we will be having a school-wide celebration day on Wednesday, October 4th! PTO volunteers will be hosting this event on the field for all students. Prizes! Each student that collected $5 in donations will be receiving their Secret Spy Pen this week and those that collected $100 in donations will be receiving their LED Fidget Spinner. Since we will have so many of these, please put your child’s name on theirs. Those that collected $200 in donations will receive their LED Frisbee in a couple weeks.
