Where the Wildcats Run 2020

We are so pleased to say we have reached our goal for the 2020 Fun Run, actually blown it out of the water, and are so thankful for every single donation! It is much needed this year and our WME community came through again! 

We will have a live-streamed fun run awards ceremony for the students hopefully this week! We were waiting on some prizes to arrive still, so weren’t able to do it last Friday. We will announce all individual and class winners at that time and send home the prizes we have. We are special ordering the $200 donor’s socks, so those will take a couple more weeks.

If you have questions about donations, please email us and thank you again for supporting WME during this crazy year!

Chipotle Restaurant Night

Please join us for our Chipotle Restaurant Night TOMORROW, October 27th at the new Highlands Ranch location on University 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! You are also able to place your order online or using their app this year! Please use promo code TFYWT2T when checking out.

Also, if you are a Scrip user, please consider buying and using a Chipotle e-certificate from Scrip for your purchase!

If you are unable to attend the fair in person, we invite you to visit our Online Book Fair. The online fair is available through Saturday, November 14th. Share with grandparents, aunts and uncles for great gift giving ideas!! All books will be shipped free to WME after the close of online shopping and can be sent home with students or picked up in the office.

We are excited to still be able to offer this WME tradition and look forward to seeing you and your family at the Book Fair!

Book Fair Volunteers

We are looking for some volunteers to help run the registers and answer questions at the Book Fair from Monday, November 9th to Friday, November 13th. If you can volunteer for more than one shift, we would greatly appreciate it, since we are trying to limit the amount of volunteers in the building that week this year. If you are interested and available, please sign up at the link below. Volunteers will be required to wear a mask. Thank you!
