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!

To WCES families, our School Counselor and Social Worker have graciously began facilitating several different groups for the students here on campus. There is a divorce group and an anxiety group that meets weekly during school hours. Please contact jasaro@pasco.k12.fl.us if you are interested in having your child be apart of either one of these valuable groups! Thanks! ... See MoreSee Less
