Red Ribbon Week and More!

Good evening Wildcat Families, 

This week we have many big events for our students and families.

Report cards will go home tomorrow, Monday, October 23rd.

Tuesday is Eureka family night beginning at 6:00 in the cafeteria.  This night will give families more information about our new math curriculum.

Thursday night at 6:30, there will be a sign up for Cub Scouts at WCES.  Information will be sent home after their visit on Wednesday during school.

Friday is our Book Character parade at 10:15 and the Fall Festival beginning at 5:00 p.m.

Also, it is Red Ribbon Week!

On Monday, wear a college/NFL team shirt to look to the future.

On Tuesday, wear jeans because drugs give me the blues.

Wednesday is Unity day, so wear orange to stand up for bullying and it’s crazy hair and socks day because it is crazy to do drugs.

On Thursday, wear Red and on Friday, wear WCES spirit wear because we choose to be drug free.

We look forward to an amazing Wildcat week!

Won’t you Be the Light?

The loose change we raise helps to make a difference to those in need.  From school supplies, to Thanksgiving dinner, we like to be able to give back to our community and your loose change can help us do just that.  Beginning August 23rd each classroom is collecting change for our Be the Light fund. All proceeds go to local families in need. 

Thanks for your support!


Dear Wesley Chapel Elementary Parents!

We are excited to kick off the 2017/18 school year and having you as part of it! Thank you for stopping by the PTA table at Meet the Teacher Day, it was great meeting you!

We would like to invite you to come and join us for our first meeting of the year on 8/25/17 at 6 p.m. in the Cafeteria. We will have a short meeting, followed by some Bingo-fun!
