Join the WES PTA
The Weatherstone PTA needs you! (And we need the WES PTA!) Please take a few minutes this week to Join the WES PTA. They not only provide significant financial support for our school but they also support us in many other ways. Membership forms were sent home from the school on Friday at Meet the Teacher or you can sign up online here on their website.
There will be a General Membership meeting on 9/9 at 9:30am in the Media Center. Please come to learn more about the PTA and what you can do to support our school.
Kindergarten Staggered Entry Reminder
As a reminder for Kindergarten parents, this week is staggered entry. Your child will attend school only one day this week. All students will then report on Monday, August 31st.
School Spirit Day This Friday
Every last Friday of the month is a school spirit day at Weatherstone! Students are staff are encouraged to participate this Friday by wearing school spirit wear or our school colors which are Red, White and Blue. The PTA will be in the lobby tomorrow morning selling T-shirts again for $10.
Arrival and Dismissal Reminders
Please be patient this week as we teach our students the arrival and dismissal routines on campus. Parents are allowed and encouraged to visit the classroom the first two weeks of school but after that we ask that students walk to their classroom independently. Dismissal will take a few extra minutes this week so please plan accordingly.
