Dear WES Families:
I hope you and your children have all had an enjoyable summer full of rest, relaxation and fun! My own family has been making the most of the amazing weather, spending countless hours outside doing all sorts of activities. Elementary aged kids are full of excitement, wonder, and creativity, and I hope you have been able to experience that with your children over the summer.
As we transition through the end of summer vacation I want to welcome everyone to the start of the 2022-2023 school year. While I hope everyone enjoys every last minute of summer vacation, I am personally very excited to have students back in WES! We have an amazing school community and I can’t wait to have our hallways and classrooms full of kids once again!
