WFE PTA BLOG:
We have partnered with Square 1 Art to create a unique opportunity to celebrate your child’s artistic accomplishments while raising much needed funds for the school.
Coming home soon will be your child’s custom catalog featuring their artwork. Won’t you help make your child feel like an accomplished artist by purchasing keepsakes for the whole family containing their masterpiece? The school earns profit from every order. And as a thank you for participating, each child is provided with a sheet of stickers imprinted with their artwork — absolutely FREE!
Watch for more details about the campaign and order deadlines. All online and paper order forms must be turned in by the due date on your child’s custom catalog. (No late orders can be accepted.) Together, we can help support the school, build your child’s self-esteem, and create lasting keepsakes from your child’s artistic achievements. These keepsakes make a wonderful gift-giving opportunity, and orders will be going home on November 21, before Thanksgiving Break.
THREE EASY WAYS TO ORDER KEEPSAKES
Happy National School Lunch Week!
NCPTA, the Wake County PTA Council, and child nutrition services are interested in learning more from parents about school meals here in Wake County. We are all invested in working together to improve, strengthen, and reimagine school meals in Wake County this year, and we are starting the process with a brief survey. This should take only 2-3 minutes of your valuable time.
Hello PTA Members!

The Box Tops competition is in full swing. We will be keeping track of the competition throughout the year, so tell your students to keep their eyes on the BOX TOPS NEWS board in the hall by the cafeteria. With the month of October as our first turn in date we want to encourage all students to turn in as many Box Tops as they can before October 18th. Your child can receive a small prize just for turning Box Tops into his or her teacher. Don’t forget to put your name on them. The class per grade with the most Box Tops collected at the end of October will receive a Popsicle or Hot Chocolate party! The class out of all grades with the most Box Tops collected will get to keep the Box Tops Champion Trophy in their classroom for a month.
Winners by grade for September’s Box Tops: Mrs. Bridges’ 1st Grade class, Mrs. Lampman’s 2nd Grade class, Mrs. Matala’s 4th Grade class, and Mrs. Alston’s 5th Grade class. Congratulations, you all get a Popsicle Party!
Special congratulations to Mrs. Alston’s 5th Grade class for winning the Trophy for most Box Tops collected for the month of September!

For anyone wanting to join the PTA, you can now pay online! Visit the following link: https://wfe.memberhub.com/dues to pay via credit card.
By joining the PTA, you are helping us to meet our school’s needs outside of what is within the budget. The money you put in towards membership goes into our school. You also get great discounts, detailed on our website under Board Information. When you volunteer with the school or join the board, you are setting an example for our students, and encouraging our teachers and staff. Membership is only $7 per person.
We understand that parents have limited time these days. By joining the PTA, we do not expect you to come to meetings, but we hope if you get a chance, you will. Meetings really help you to get a feel for what is going on within the school and is your best source for information outside of newsletters. We also do not require you to volunteer - though we LOVE when you do.
Artist Leni Newell will be here from October 9 - 13 to help our 5th graders create art banners that will be permanently installed in prominent locations throughout our school. We are in need of 2 volunteers for each Art Room shift, twice daily. For the 5th grade banner project, Leni, the visiting artist in residence, will be asking volunteers to oversee each student as they print, stamp, paint onto the muslin fabric banners, to make sure they are following directions, stamping/painting in the correct areas. You may be asked to walk students back to class and pick up the next group of 10 students that is painting on the banners and you will be available for Leni if she needs assistance. Leni has a unique skillset as an artist, designer, and art educator. This is an awesome opportunity to experience the process of a professional installation artist and silk painter!

Hey, it's me, Kenna. My kid is in Mrs. Matala's 4th grade class. I'm keeping the blog and website up for the moment. Let me know what you want to see more or less of. I need feedback to make changes. Thank you for participating in the PTA. I believe all of our kids benefit when we pay attention.
