WME PTO has partnered with EduKit again this year to offer school supply kits for the 2020-2022 school year! Orders with EduKit are online only. PTO offers this service as a convenience to families to save time and money.
Supply packs are delivered to the school with free shipping if you order by June 10th and will be in your child’s classroom at Meet and Greet.
If you place your order between June 11th and July 17th, your kits will include an extra fee and be shipped to your home.
Headphones or earbuds are a required school supply item for all students. They may be purchased through EduKit for an additional $11 for headphones and $10 for earbuds, which is a great price for the quality.
If you have any questions, please contact Michele Dutcher.
Looking for Fun Run Sponsors
WME PTO is already preparing for next fall’s Where the Wildcats Run Fun Run fundraiser and we are looking for sponsors! The fun run will be on Thursday, September 17th. We rely on sponsors each year to offset the cost of putting on the run and in exchange, our sponsors receive advertising to our whole WME community. If you or someone you know owns their own business or works for a company that would be interested in sponsoring the fun run, please see the informational letter and incentives below. Then email our sponsorship committee at firstname.lastname@example.org if interested. Thank you!
WME Yearbooks have shipped home! There is still time to purchase a yearbook if you haven’t already. The yearbook is beautiful so don’t miss out! Questions? Please contact Jory Hastings.
