Happy first week of school to all our hybrid and e-learning families! We hope all our students, teachers and staff have a wonderful week and year to come. If you have any needs , ideas on ways to help, or concerns for WME PTO, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We look forward to another year of helping to make Wildcat Mountain an amazing place to learn!

If you are not returning to WME or opted for e-learning and purchased an EduKit, you may call the office at 303-387-6925 to arrange pick up of your kit. If you have any questions or concerns with your EduKit please email Michele Dutcher.
We have four extra EduKit supply kits available for purchase. Please call the WME Office at 303-387-6925 to purchase.

Looking for Fundraiser Sponsors
WME PTO is starting to prepare and plan for this year’s fundraiser and we are looking for sponsors! We rely on sponsors each year to offset the cost of putting on a large fundraiser and in exchange, our sponsors receive advertising to our whole WME community. We don’t yet know exactly what this year’s fundraiser will look like, but we will make sure to give our sponsors adequate exposure!
If you or someone you know owns their own business or works for a company that would be interested in sponsoring us, please email our sponsorship committee at email@example.com. Thank you!

How PTO is Helping to Return to School
PTO has purchased individual portable white boards for every student and several tents to help facilitate outdoor learning environments and picnic lunches whenever possible. The tents will be put up every morning at drop off and taken down every afternoon at pick up.
We are looking for volunteers to help with the “tent crew” on the field, both in the mornings and afternoons. Please stick around for a few extra minutes after drop off or before pick up Monday – Thursdays if you can help us with the tents. Thank you!
Girl Scouts Give Back
WME’s 5th grade Girl Scout Junior troop is hard at work! In order to earn their Bronze Award (Girl Scouts’ third highest award), they needed to identify a problem in the community and find ways to solve it. The troop decided to help their WME family return to in-person learning as safely as possible.
They met with Mrs. Milley via Zoom, and agreed to a plan. The girls are using their funds from selling cookies to make 40 plexiglass sneeze guards for teachers, reusable masks for teachers and students, and mask lanyards for teachers. Their goal is to make the world a better place. Way to go 5th grade troop!!
Interested in Cub Scouts?
Then Pack 837 is for you! Boys or Girls any age K-5 are invited to participate. They will be holding an informational meeting on Monday, August 24th @ 6:30 PM at Rocky Heights Middle School outside on the baseball field. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
