    Hello WRS All-Star Families!


    Our final PTO meeting was held last week and we wanted to extend a huge "thank you" to the PTO executive board members and volunteers for all they have done for the students. There are still quite a few things planned and none of it would be possible without their time, effort and commitment to our school. 


    Looks like the sun is here to stay! We have attached an article about sun safety for your review. It might be a good idea to apply sunscreen to your child prior to going to school in the morning as we are getting outside more for recesses and class activities.



    ​Thanks to all our parents who attended the kindergarten field trip on Friday. You helped to make for an enjoyable and safe day for our kiddos! Our prekindergarten took advantage of the empty school and peeked into kindergarten classrooms!


    ​Here is to a fabulous week ahead and upcoming reminders.


    ***ABC Count Down***

    The count down has begun!   Be sure to ask your child each day's surprise.  There are a few days in our countdown that will require some help from you.

    • Tuesday, May 21st (J) - Jammie Day: wear pajamas
    • Tuesday, June 4th (R) - Rainbow Day: wear as many colors as you can
    • Monday, June 10th (V) - Vacation Wear: dress like you are going on vacation 


    • PTO Spring Fair Day- June 5th (rain date June 6th)
      • Our Spring Fair planning is underway! A letter went home on Friday with event details. All volunteers are asked to wear a red shirt on this day. The WRS PTO Spring Fair Day SignUps are now available. There are two links one for volunteering and one for donations.
