Back to School Bash

The Back to School Bash is back this year!! Please join us for an evening of fun celebrating the new school year at WME!

Our school-wide Back to School Bash will be THIS Friday, August 13th from 5:00 – 8:00 pm on the WME Field. We will have four inflatables, music, temporary tattoos and four food trucks (listed and linked below)! Invite your friends and bring your chairs, blankets, lawn games and a picnic dinner if you prefer!

There is no registration required to attend, but we will be collecting donations to help us cover our costs. We are suggesting a $5 – $10 donation per jumper. You may donate via cash, check or credit card when you arrive. Please email Kristen Seager with any questions. We hope to see you all there for a fun family evening out!

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

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

5th Grade Outdoor Ed Registration

We are excited that our 5th graders will be able to attend Outdoor Ed at Stone Canyon Ed Ventures from August 18th – 20th! Please use this link to register your 5th grader and learn more about Stone Canyon EdVentures. You will not pay at this time, the school will be posting fees in MySchoolBucks as soon as buses are confirmed. Thank you.

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!

** If you have already enrolled in year’s past, you are still on our list and do not need to register again.
