This Week at WMES
Week of November 14-18


Dear WMES families:

Our November Calendar can be found on our webpage.  

Some info for you this week:

  • Food Drive: We are participating in the Lion’s Express, and HRCE School’s Plus Food Drives this year.  If you are able to help, please send in any donations over the next few weeks to support local families in need.  Thank you.


  • If you could use some food support please contact the school, or the Schools Plus team and we will make arrangements.  Please also see the attached flyers.


  • A reminder to all families that we always have healthy snacks at the office for any student who needs an extra snack.  We typically have some sort of fresh fruit, yogurt, cheese, cereal and granola bars.


  • Our “Celebrate the Arts” night on December 12th will begin at 5pm.  It is an Open House night to view student artwork and take in some live performances.  There will be live performances on the Main stage and on Stage 2 in the cafeteria.  The schedule will be out next week so that families can make arrangements to view their children’s performances. 


  • If you are in need of COVID testing kits or masks please let us know.  We can send some home - or you can drop in to pick them up.
