 Note From our PTO

Help us continue to build our home and school connection. This relationship will certainly benefit our students. Attendance is very important. School begins daily at 7:15 a.m. and ends at 3:15 p.m. We need students here daily. We are making every minute count at WKE. Our instructional schedule is designed for bell-to bell teaching and students are needed. We need you to adhere to our instructional schedule as close as possible. We have our intervention time from 2:30 p.m.-3:15 p.m. This will help boost students' math and reading scores. Thanks to all who attended the last PTO meeting. We have fundraising activities planned throughout the year. Our next meeting is Monday, November 3rd.  

 Vision Statement:

Our vision is to provide a happy, caring and stimulating environment where children will recognize and achieve their fullest potential, so that they can make their best contribution to society.

Mission Statement:

To provide a quality education for the youth that attends our school. We believe that a good education is necessary for good citizenship in a democracy.

The effectiveness of our district's mission rests with competent and dedicated teachers and administrators who believe and promote a healthy and safe environment for the purpose of academic achievement.
