Peppermint Village Holiday Shop

The Peppermint Village Holiday Shop is 12/17-12/20. Students are scheduled to come shop with us during their block times, and the shop will be open all day on 12/20. Students have the opportunity to bring money and a shopping list, shop for their friends and family, wrap their gifts, and surprise you for the holidays! It is such a fun time every year for our kids, and a great learning lesson in giving & money management for them.

Nutcracker Market and Soup Lunch

PLEASE NOTE DATE CHANGES!! Luncheon is 12/7. Items due 11/30.

VOLUNTEERS NEEDED!! December is the teachers’ favorite lunch because it is their traditional Nutcracker Market and Soup Lunch. We do this every year. I have attached the link below to sign up for items, and I appreciate your help. I say it every time, but I really can’t do this without all of you! Some things to remember….

1. Contact Darci with any questions 281-785-5605

2. Store brand is fine unless otherwise noted

3. I need ALL items by Friday, November 30th. If you are buying fresh produce or dairy or anything that might spoil, please wait to purchase and bring on the 30th.

I make all the soups ahead of time and freeze them so they are ready to go. If you want to help and are not able to purchase items or can’t make it to the store, here are some other ways we need help:

1. I will need to borrow about 8 crockpots (these can be dropped off at the school on the afternoon of the 12/6.

2. I will need help setting up on the morning of the 12/7.

3. I will need to borrow 4 soup ladles (or someone can donate these to the school)

4. I need someone to warm the breadsticks on the 7th and bring them to the school by 10:15am (this would probably be best split into 2-3 people)

I think that’s all. Contact me, Darci, with any questions or for drop off. 281-785-5605

Our fundraiser is coming to an end very soon!

School Colors

Wedgewood Parents,
In order to help us stand out from other schools and identify with our environment beliefs and beautiful mural, we would like to open up a discussion for the possibility of changing our school colors!
We could remain red, white, and blue like many other elementary schools or choose from the color pallet from our mural: green, grey, and white (with some blue accents).

We would like your input. What would you like our school/spirit colors to be?

 

What a Great First Day!

Parents, we did it! The first day is done. “Phew!” Whether you are breathing a sigh of relief, shouting for joy, or drying your tears, day one is in the books!

Great volunteers like you are what make WWE such an amazing place for our kiddos to learn, grow, and have fun!
