Back to School Bash Thank Yous

Thank you to everyone for coming to the Back to School Bash Friday evening! It was a huge success and the kids looked to be having a great time! Our WME community truly is the best and we loved seeing old, current, and future faces on the field! Thank you to the Rock Canyon Poms and everyone who helped set up, clean up and took donations. A special THANK YOU to Kristen Seager for organizing the bash. And to Jory Hastings for taking photos for the yearbook. Your time and willingness to serve WME is much appreciated!

Another THANK YOU to the wonderful food trucks that came out to serve our families a delicious dinner and dessert: Downtown FingersThe Walking TacoHigh Society Pizza and HipPOPs. We had fantastic food for a great community night!

Our last and most important THANK YOU goes out to our two amazing event sponsors below who also attended the bash! We are very appreciative of their continued support of Wildcat Mountain.

Looking for Fun Run Sponsors

WME PTO is still accepting business sponsors for our 2021 Where the Wildcats Run fun run on September 23rd! We rely on these 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 and would be interested in sponsoring the fun run please email wmefunrun@gmail.com.

We would like sponsors to commit soon and will need payment and logo by August 31st.

Text Message Reminders

WME PTO uses text message reminders as another way for parents to receive info and updates on everything happening around WME! If you’d like to enroll, there are two super easy ways to register.

1. Visit the Remind website and fill in your information OR
2. Text @wmept to 81010

We found the text messages to be another great way to connect with our WME community during the week and think you will find these text message reminders very useful!
