Elijah Murphy was the first student to earn a Golden Token and use our book vending machine. Elijah was rewarded for doing an outstanding job while working with his reading interventionist, Mrs. Wassil. Way to go Elijah!

The WGEC Braggin' Board is back by popular demand. We would love to display the successful harvests of all our elementary center students for everyone to enjoy. If your elementary aged child legally harvests any game or fish this school year, please send in a picture of them for us to add to our 2022-23 Braggin' Board. Pictures should be no larger than 5x7. You can also email pictures to me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org. The first member of this year's Braggin' Board is Nolan Johnston with a nice squirrel.

Parents, I would just like to remind you that students who are pick-up students for the year need a note sent in to the office even if they were pick up students last year. We also need notes from parents when a chilld changes their "normal routine" for dismissal. Finally, please remember that a parent, guardian or older sibling needs to be visible at the bus stop in order for the driver to allow students in elementary school off of the bus in the afternoon. If there is not a parent, guardian or older sibling visible, the children will be returned to the school to be picked up by a parent/guardian. If you have any questions, please call the elementary office at 724-499-5183.

With the school year quickly approaching, I wanted to remind everyone of the DROP-OFF and PICK-UP routine. Parents may begin dropping off students at 7:55 AM. Afternoon pick-up will begin at 3:05 PM. Students in grades K-6 who arrive after 8:30 AM will be marked "tardy" and need to be signed in to school at the main office. Elementary students who are getting picked up need to be picked up no later than 3:25 PM. I have attached a diagram of the route you should follow to drop off and pick up your child.
