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!

MealViewer makes navigating the school breakfast and lunch menus a breeze! Next school year we will be replacing Nutrislice with MealViewer.  Parents can search and favor multiple schools to help keep track of what’s being served at each location.  Students can like their favorite meal choices and quickly see when they will be served again.  Allergen icons are easily recognizable to help accommodate those with dietary restrictions. An interactive carb calculator is also available to make eating in the lunch room easy & fun!

Want to know if your school will be open for summer feeding?  Download the app or check out the MealViewer website to find out!  If they are not, the site will help you locate the nearest summer feeding location.  You will also be able to see what delicious meals we will be offering this summer.

Visit http://schools.mealviewer.com/district/pascocounty to select your school(s). 

We invite you Friday, March 16th from 11am-1pm to join us in honoring and celebrating the life of Mr. Dan Bolt.

Mr. Bolt has been a staple at WCES since 2003 and was a Pasco County Teacher of the Year Finalist in 2016. He was our long time Music Teacher until recently when he transitioned to his new role as a Behavior Specialist. Mr. Bolt was active in PTA, chorus, school musicals, and has been a foster parent to multiple children over the past few years. Most recently, he was able to adopt his two boys.

He was more than just a co-worker and teacher to many of us. Mr. Bolt will forever be know for his loyalty and positivity to all of those around him.

If you have photos you would like the share for a slideshow that will be played during the celebration of life, please e-mail them to wcespumas@gmail.com

I think this will be a very special moment to celebrate Mr. Bolt’s life. Many of you do not know me and some know of my son Matthew Andujar. I wanted to just take a moment and extend my deepest condolences to the Bolt family but also to all his fellow workers/ teachers who worked so close to him. It’s never easy to lose family or a friend. May he Rest In Peace.

Great speaker! I believe he said “play hard, study harder” or maybe that is what I morphed it into;)
