Celebrating Student Learning at WES

This week, families are invited by their grade level teachers to visit the school with your student to celebrate the learning children have been doing this year. These classroom visits also line up with the grades 3-6 music concerts this week. (Pictured above are the second graders who had their music concert the last week of February.) Please visit your grade level website/blog or contact the teachers for information on specific timing. We hope to see many of you at school this week!

Here are links to the newsletter/blogs for reference:

Do you have extra cloth or canvas grocery bags that are cluttering up your closet? WES and the Woodstock Community Food Shelf will take them. WES and WCFS partner together on weekend food bags for families and can use reusable bags for this ongoing project. Mrs. Klocek will have a box in the lobby for your bag donations. Thank you!



  • Summer SOAK sessions are now up on the website so that you can sign up.
  • Health and registration forms are also on the website.  Please complete those prior to registration so that the process of registration goes easier for you.  You can send it all in now.
  • Credit cards are accepted this year for payment for Summer SOAK.  Parents have asked for this for years and we are finally able to do this.  You will see this option on the registration page of the website.
  • A Summer SOAK Fundraiser is being planned for the first Saturday in June.  We would like to offer the community a water park similar to the one we have for our Summer SOAKers with even bigger water slides.  If you are interested in helping with the planning and day of the event, please email us at

  • Remember, registration is not complete until we have your health forms, registration form and payment.
