We’re integrating visual arts into mathematics with ArtsNOW help! Teachers are learners too.


Ice cream after school? I’m sure the kids wouldn’t mind that! 😉 Join the PTA for Spirit Night at Izzy’s Scoops & Sweets. See you there!


Menu change tomorrow (Tuesday, 9.26.23) for the cold items - the PB Kit will be served instead of PB&J sandwich. The hot lunch items remain the same!

See you Tuesday for Parent Orientation!!!


We have just a few more staff introductions to make this school year. Many of you know the next one because she is a former 4th grade teacher! This year Mrs. Perry will be working with students as a Literacy Coach. We are so excited for her to bring her passion of reading to even more students at WES!


We would like to introduce our newest CD teacher, Mrs. Brunning! While she's not new to our school, she is excited to be a part of the CD team this year.

Mrs. Bruning, and all of our CD teachers, loved seeing our littlest Wildcats join us at school last week. We know they will all have a great year.


We would like to introduce the WES cafeteria staff! Please meet Miss Oree, Ms. Sharon, Mrs. Vermell and our new Cafeteria Manager Mr. Tim. We are so grateful for this incredible group who supports our students by providing hot meals twice a day!

The First Day of School is off to a great start! Stay tuned for some more pictures! 🚌📚📓


Many of our students may recognize Mrs. McNamara from last year. She was our building sub and worked with so many of our students. This year she is working with Ms. Emond on the Autism Team as a Techer Assistant.


It was wonderful to see so many of you at school yesterday, and we cannot wait for tomorrow! Please remember, parents of students in all grade levels may walk their children in on Wednesday. Please plan to enter through the front door (parents may not enter through the bus loop) and walk your student directly to class. Please say goodbye to your child at the classroom door, and then make your way back to the front of the school to exit through the front door. We appreciate your cooperation with this.

On Thursday and Friday, kindergarten parents may walk students in, following the same procedure as on Wednesday.

See you soon, Wildcats!
