Join us for everyone's favorite fall family outing - the WCES Fall Festival, sponsored by the WCES PTO! Festivities are from 6-8 pm, Friday, October 20, 2017.
There will be several delicious options for sale for dinner (no cooking, no dishes! Yay!), tons of games, bounce houses, and more!
More information will be coming home soon with your Warrior, but in the meantime we hope you will mark your calendar and plan to join us!
See one of your PTO Board members if you have questions or would like to volunteer for the event!
September was a busy month for those Box Tops!! Congratulations to the classes that collected the most box tops over the last month and earned a popsicle party for their class!!
Kindergarten: Team Tatman
3rd Grade: Team Truelove
4th Grade: Team Tobi Allen
5th Grade: Team Neel
The October deadline for collection is October 13th (Friday! Eek!) so don't forget to send them in with your student. Parent volunteers donate time and effort to clip/trim the Box Tops, so it would be greatly appreciated if you could send yours in already neatly trimmed! Thank you, Warriors!
Due to Hurricane Irma and school cancellations, picture day will now be held on Monday, October 2nd. Please plan accordingly and have your Warriors bring their best smiles! Picture order forms went home in September or you can pay for your pictures directly on the photographer's website. Please direct any questions to the school or Leonard's! Thank you!

Hello Warrior Families! We hope that you all weathered Hurricane Irma and that you all remain safe and healthy! As you know, we have been out of school for a week now and there are some additional things to update you with. We will continue to share information here and on our Facebook page as it becomes available. Stay tuned and stay safe!
Our amazing Nurse Lee still needs a few volunteers to help with health screenings next week. No medical experience necessary (it's easy and fun, I promise!) and you will be fully trained! There will be a nurse on site with you all 3 days. Can you spare 3 hours to help out?? The greatest need is Thursday, but we also need 2 more volunteers for Tuesday morning as well! Thank you, Warrior Families!!

PS: All volunteers must be registered/approved school volunteers! If you're not & would like to be, please call the school for more information!
Did you know that WCES has an AMAZING group of volunteers that clip and sort Box Tops every month?! Did you know that your Box Tops have raised almost $50,000 for the school!! $50,000!!! That's some serious dough and it all goes right back to benefit the students and teachers at the school!!
How can you help?! Clip those Box Tops off of products that you use every day. Bring them to school before the 15th of every month.... and if you want extra brownie points, trim them up neatly before you send them in! Each time a class collects 250 Box Tops they win a Popsicle party! Every quarter, the class with the most box tops collected gets a BIG party (and they get to choose what kind of celebration!). So this is what we call Habit 4: Think Win/Win!!
PS: If you have a few extra minutes every month and you'd like to help out, please email us or drop us a line on Facebook and we can get you connected - we always need volunteers! Thank you, Warrior Families!
Hello Warrior families!! PTO Wants to introduce you to an easy (and free!) way to help the PTO raise money for the school. Amazon's charitable giving happens through smile.amazon.com. When you sign up and link up with Wards Creek Elementary PTO, a portion of the money you spend on Amazon gets sent right back to the school!! We have many fun things planned for this year and the money we raise goes directly back to your children's educational experience! We hope you will follow the easy directions below to link up and start earning for the PTO! It couldn't be easier to do!
Welcome to the first full week of school, Warriors!! In St. Johns County, kindergartners do a staggered start, allowing a few students to attend each day for the first few days. Then on Wednesday, all of the class will attend together. This gives new kindergarten students time to adjust to being in the "big school", learn classroom rules, the cafeteria, and so on!
On the first full day when of all kindergarten students are in class together, the PTO will be hosting "Tears and Cheers" - some light refreshments in the cafeteria to celebrate (or commiserate!) that big day when all of our "babies" are not babies anymore, but headed proudly into the Orange House! We hope that you will join us!
Wednesday, August 16, 2017 - Wards Creek Cafeteria at 8:30 AM

Welcome back, Wards Creek Warriors!! The PTO was thrilled to welcome everyone back to begin a great new school year! We welcome a new principal this year, Ms. Bethany Mitidieri. We know that she has many great ideas and will be bringing some new fun things to Wards Creek this year!
We hope that you and your families will join the PTO. Each family that joins will receive a discount card good for many local businesses. Your membership fees will go to support the teachers and staff at Wards Creek as well as put on many fun events throughout the year! Check out our calendar to stay up to date on what's happening! Also, we are always looking for volunteers, so if you are interested in helping out throughout the year, please e-mail us at WardsCreekPTO@gmail.com or find us on Facebook!
