WME PTO Newsletter 5/28

This will be our last weekly email blast full of reminders until August (except for information about upcoming Garden Work Days). WME PTO had a great year of fundraising and events that were all made possible by an amazing team of people! Thank you to the following outgoing PTO members for their dedication to WME over the years. Our students and teachers have benefited greatly from the immeasurable amount of time they have spent volunteering and giving back!

Dana Schmahl – Co-President
Becca Eggleston – Secretary
Amy Stein – Hospitality Co-Chair
Jory Hastings – Graphic Design and Fun Run
Lia Diebold – Communications/Facebook
Krista Finney – King Soopers Cards Coordinator

Also, a huge thank you to everyone who has volunteered to replace these ladies and join WME PTO next school year. For a full list of our 2019-2020 board and event chairs, please visit our website. We will also be updating our financials page soon on the website if you’re interested, now that most spending for the 2018-2019 school year is done.

We hope everyone has a fun and safe summer and we will see you in August!

EduKit Orders

WME PTO has partnered with EduKit again this year to offer school supply kits for the 2019-2020 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 THIS FRIDAY, May 31st and will be in your child’s classroom at Meet and Greet on August 6th.

If you place your order between June 1st and July 18th, your kits will include an extra fee and be shipped to your house.

Headphones are a required school supply item for all students. They may be purchased through EduKit for an additional $11 (great price for the quality), you may reuse yours from this year, or buy some on your own.

If you have any questions, please contact Michele Dutcher.

EduKit Online Ordering

If you’d like to shop for school supplies yourself, the lists by class can be found on the WME Website.

Looking for Fun Run Sponsors 

WME PTO is already preparing for next fall’s Where the Wildcats Run fun run fundraiser and are looking for sponsors! The fun run will be on Friday, September 13th. 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 email our sponsorship committee at for more information.

Kindergarten Moving Up and 5th Grade Moving On Ceremony DVDs

If you forgot to turn in your order form for a Kindergarten Moving Up or 5th Grade Moving On Ceremony DVD or Blu-Ray and would still like one, please contact Will Nuessle with Ninja Boy Productions at They are $20 each and will be shipped to you.

How Can I Help PTO This Summer?

PTO is looking for a couple individuals to help with:

  • planning and ordering Fun Run prizes
  • coordinating incoming kindergartner play dates during the summer
  • helping us sort and distribute EduKits the week before school starts
  • modifying and editing our Fun Run flyers and creating sponsor banners (using Adobe InDesign)

Please contact Jackie Benitez if you can help with any of those tasks or have any questions
