Birthday Book Club

Happy February Birthdays!! bbookclub

Our next Birthday Book Club is Wednesday, February 7th during the lunch period. Students with birthdays in February are invited to come select a birthday book as a gift from the WCE PTA after they have eaten and cleaned their eating area. If students had birthdays between June and January and did NOT already pick a book, they may also do so at this time.

Looking Forward

Get involved in 2018-19! pta

There will be many open positions and committees for 2018-2019:
• President (or Co-Presidents)
• 1st VP Family Programs & Legislation
• 2nd VP Fundraising
• Secretary
• Treasurer
• Membership
• Weekly Window/Communications
• SPARK Liaison
• Birthday Book Club
• Paperback Book Exchange
• Rec Nights
• School Supply Kits (actually needed now for spring ordering)
• and possibly more....
It is so important for the kids to see a parental presence in the school. Many of these committees can be co-chaired which makes it easier and more fun. Several can also be done at home, on your schedule! We encourage you to think about it, and reach out to one of us if you are interested. Deciding early makes for a much smoother transition as shadowing is a great training option (just saying...).
