PCS is dismissing two hours early today. This means WTE is dismissing at 12:25pm.
Bus 1501 will be running 20 minutes or so late this morning.
Just a reminder that the 5th grade parents will be selling Valentine suckers before school on MWF of this week to help offset the cost of their end of year celebration. Be sure go get to school early if you'd like to make a purchase. Have a great evening.
The new bus has arrived and the students are loading now.
Bus 1408 is broken down at the school. They are sending another bus but it is coming from Winfield. This bus services New London Commons, Sleepy Hollow, and Hickory Mills areas.
A refresher for morning drop-off procedures: Everyone dropping off in the morning (except staff and buses) needs to use the morning drop off lanes that are beside the WTE Annex. Only buses and staff should be coming in the main entrance before 7:30am. Please refrain from getting out of your car in the mornings and walking your child across the traffic. We have staff outside to assist students getting out of their car and into the building. We also have fifth grade students to walk them to class. Thank you for your assistance!
Pre-K registration for 2023-2024 opens January 17th. To register, go to www.putnamschools.com, menu, parents, Pre-K & click the link for registration. I will post the kindergarten registration dates as soon as they are set by the county.
The absence system is down for all administrators at this time. This means that principals do not have access to the system. Employees (other than admins) can enter an absence in the system. Principals will not be able to assign a substitute at this time. If you take off tomorrow and arrange a sub yourself, please make sure they know to just show up and we will get them entered as soon as we can get into the site.
Make-up times for Santa's Workshop (for those students who were absent or for those who need to get something else) will be all day Thursday and finishing up on Friday morning.
We are extending the Chick-Fil-A Pre-Sale ONE MORE DAY! Please get your orders in tomorrow, Wednesday, November 30. This is a great way to get Chick-Fil-A without driving to a restaurant! $12 gets you a sandwich, bag of chips, cookie, and a water. The pick-up location will be at Zone Out Sports from 11-1 on Saturday.
Due to a mix up on the specials schedule, (no fault of the PTO committee heads who are in charge), I need to let you know that your child will shop in Santa's workshop on the day that they have Mr. Pyle for PE the week we return from Thanksgiving Break. The day on the letter is incorrect. Sorry for the confusion.
We are extending the calendar playground fundraiser until Friday. Reminder, we are accepting all calendars no matter how many days are filled:) Please send the money and calendars to school by this Friday 11/4.
School Picture Day is tomorrow. You can order by sending in the payment tomorrow with the order form or order online by going go www.strawbridge.net and enter this code FM391028
Congratulations to Mrs. Douglas' Class for being the first class to have all parents pay their $5.00 to join the PTO. They won first place in the PTO Membership Drive and will be treated to a popsicle party! Mrs. Painter's and Mrs. Johnson's classes tied for second place and will also get a popsicle party. It is not too late for the remaining classes. Any class who reaches 100% membership can still win a party. The deadline is tomorrow 9/22/22. Joining the PTO does not obligate you to volunteer in any way.
Just a reminder that our school is no longer eligible for free breakfasts and lunches. You are welcome to fill out an individual application for free or reduced meals. The applications are online on the PCS website. Meal prices are $1.45 for breakfast and $1.90 for lunch. Meals will be charged to your child's account and you will receive a monthly bill. If you would like milk for your cold lunch, it is .35 cents and is paid in cash. Thank you and have a great evening!
Good evening WTE families, We would like to take this opportunity to invite everyone to Open House on Monday evening from 4-6pm. We ask that you use this time to meet the staff and to take your "Back to School Pictures" utilizing our fun backdrop. To keep the traffic flowing on the first day, please remain in your car as you drop your child off. Staff and 5th grade students will be available to help assist your child to class. Kindergarten teachers will be outside to meet their students. Thank you for your cooperation and we look forward to seeing you soon! Reminder that doors open at 6:50am and school begins at 7:25am.
Parents, Be sure to add WTES school phone number (304-757-6711) and the Putnam County Schools' central office number (304-586-0500) into your contacts on your cell phone. This will prevent a phone call from Putnam County Schools or your school from appearing as a "Spam Risk" number.
Open House will need to be a little different from years past by limiting the amount of people in the building at one time. Therefore, please see the times to attend. Masks are recommended for those that are not vaccinated but not mandatory. Open House will be held on Thursday, 8/19/2021 If your last name begins with....... A-F please come between 4:00-4:30 pm G-L please come between 4:30-5:00 pm M-R please come between 5:00-5:30 pm S-Z please come between 5:30-6:00 pm
For those of you planning ahead...School will be starting in the fall at 7:30am and doors will open at 7:00am. Students will be dismissed to their classrooms at 7:20am from the gym or cafeteria if they arrive before 7:20am.
West Teays is always prepared. Today we practiced the state wide tornado drill.
