Wards Creek Elementary PTO's biggest fundraiser this year will be the Boosterthon Fun Run. No doubt, you've heard a LOT about it from your Warrior - and tomorrow is the big day! Unfortunately, it's going to be FRIGID in the morning, and for the safety of all of our students, we will not be running outside, rather participating in 35 super fun indoor activities instead!! If you're planning to volunteer, you are still needed/welcome/appreciated, so come early to grab a great spot to watch and cheer.
The schedule is as follows:
8:50 AM: ESE, Pre-K, Kindergarten, 1st and 2nd grades
10:00 AM: 3rd, 4th, and 5th grades
We will be in the cafe - we hope you can join us for this awesome celebration. All of your hard work has paid off!! We will be able to make some amazing upgrades to WCES all because of your support of the Warriors! THANK YOU!!!
Our Platinum Business Partner, Smiles by Glenos, is checking in with us to remind Warrior families that you can call for a free dental growth & development exam for your child. Smiles by Glenos has 2 locations in St. Augustine to serve your family - the children and the adults!! Ask around, a lot of those beautiful smiles you see in WGV are thanks to Dr. Glenos!
We appreciate Smiles by Glenos's continued support of Wards Creek Elementary School and we hope that you will visit them and tell them thanks as well!
PS: Check out Smiles by Glenos Partner Spotlight on our blog for more information!
Have you seen our new spirit shirts!? We now have long sleeves, just in time for this cold weather!! We debuted the new shirts at Spirit Night last week at McDonald's - did you see your favorite teacher sporting one?? Want one for yourself? Well look no further! We had a limited supply available to take home right away, but we ran out quickly. The PTO will be placing another order soon, so now is the time to get your form in! Order forms can be downloaded here. Sizes range from child XS to Adult 3XL and you can choose between gray or black. All sizes are $12 each.
As always, if you have any questions, please feel free to e-mail us! We thank you for your continued support of Wards Creek Elementary!!
The holiday lunch is back at WCES and we are in need of some awesome parent volunteers to help serve food to our Warriors and their families. Can you spare 30 minutes or an hour? If you’re going to be at school anyway, find out from your child’s teacher what time the class eats - then pick a time slot before or after to give back to your school.

Thank you for your help!
It's time for everyone's favorite Spirit Night - McTeacher night!!! Some of your favorite teachers and staff will be working the register, saying hi at the drive-through, and preparing your food. Come join us at the WGV McDonald's (Murabella Plaza) from 5-8 this Thursday night. 10% of all food proceed will be given back to the Wards Creek PTO and will benefit our Warriors! We will also have some new spirit wear for sale, so please come by, have dinner, and celebrate our Warrior Pride!
You know about Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, and Cyber Monday... but do you know about Giving Tuesday!? It's a day, after all that shopping, to stop and give a little back! We are SO appreciative of our Warrior Families and we thought we would share some ways you can give back to your school, should you feel so inclined!
WCES PTO hopes everyone had a great Thanksgiving with family and friends! We know today kicks off the shopping season and many of you are out hunting the best deals for that holiday giving! Two quick reminders:
1) Show some love to our Business Partners!!! They are such great support to the WCES PTO (and your kids!) so we hope you will support them. Learn more by visiting our Business Partners page.
2) If you're shopping on Amazon, set up Amazon Smile so WCES PTO gets a donation from every purchase you make! It's so easy to do and once you do it, you won't have to reset it - just go to smile.amazon.com and shop 'til you drop!!
We got so excited about Halloween, the TORCH party, and the Mother-Son event that we forgot to share some great pics from the Storybook Parade!! Did you know we have some pretty amazing faculty and staff at Wards Creek?? Every year, their parade costumes are seriously the best - and when you think they can't do any better, they take it to the next level!! AMAZING!! Check out some of their great costumes this year! Feel free to share your book character in the comments, too! We can't post pics of your children, but you sure can!!
