Parents we need your input.

WES needs all of our parents' input for our Title 1 Survey and the Transportation Form for 2020-2021 school year. All 5th Grade Parents are also asked to fill out an information form to help us plan for the end of the year. These documents can be filled out electronically by clicking on the title of this article and following the links. Thank you for your attention to these items.

We Made It!

Thank you for all the love you showed us in Friday's packet pick up. We were so happy to see you all, and we appreciate the smiles, kind words, signs, honks, and happy faces. We are proud of you all -- students AND parents -- for your hard work during remote learning. We would like to thank Sweet Smiles for donating the ice cream treats that you received today.

Congratulations to our fifth grade class as they move on to middle school. We have enjoyed our years with you, and we wish you the best.

It's been a memorable year, and we are lucky to have a school family as special as ours. We will miss you, and we hope that you READ every day this summer. Make sure you fill out your summer reading log. Have a wonderful summer! WE love you!

P.S. If you ordered a yearbook and didn't receive it on Friday, please send me a message before Monday. We will check our records. We have a very limited number of extra yearbooks and we plan to sell them on Monday at 8:00. Please let us know immediately if you did not get yours. Have a safe summer!

2020-2021 School Year Information

Hello families!

We wanted to share some additional information about WCS' plans for the 2020-2021 school year. WCS has updated its 2020-2021 webpage with more information about Plan B (in school with reduced capacity of 50%), including a calendar of school days. You can find that information on our district webpage by following the link provided below.

In the Central District, generally students whose last names begin with A-J will come on A days while students whose last names begin with K-Z will come on B days. There are some exceptions, as we've worked to align with Wilkes Central High School, Central Wilkes Middle School, and other schools to make sure all siblings attend school on the same day. We are committed to making sure that all children in a family (regardless of last name and school) will attend school on the same day. Also if you need to request an adjustment due to child care needs, please let us know. We plan to inform every family of their assignment after August 1.
