New at Wards Creek this year - our TORCH cards allow the students to shine! They earn stamps for leadership behavior in the classroom and in return, are being rewarded with some awesome celebrations each quarter.
1st quarter's reward for students who have earned enough TORCH points is a dance party in the courtyard. It is scheduled for November 10, 2017.
We have some awesome volunteers who have agreed to chaperone, but we are missing one thing - A DJ!!! Are you a DJ (either professionally or as a hobby)? Would you be interested in donating your time to come play some great music for our Warriors? If you are interested in learning more or volunteering your time, please contact wcesPTOvolunteer@gmail.com.
Exciting news.... Wednesday, November 8th will be our first official Spirit Night!! All day long, grab any regular-priced pizza at Papa Murphy's (Murabella shopping center) and they will donate 20% of sales to the PTO! This is a great way to support Wards Creek and a delicious and quick way to feed your crew. Mark you calendar - next Wednesday is PIZZA NIGHT!!
And thank you to Papa Murphys for sponsoring Spirit Night!
Wards Creek Elementary PTO is proud to introduce another new business partner - Mathnasium! Located in the Murabella shopping center (Next to Papa Murphy's and Fantastic Sams) they are a leader in math education. We asked Mathnasium to tell us a little bit about their services and we are so excited to share them!
"Mathnasium is a math only learning center that teaches kids math the way that makes sense to them. We use proprietary teaching materials along with experienced math tutors to deliver a customized learning plan. Each plan is common core aligned and design to address each student’s needs, whether that started out far behind or are in need of greater challenges. In addition, we meet with each student’s teacher to further tailor their math program through the year. Our instructional approach goes beyond traditional math tutoring in developing a deep understanding and love for math."
Mathnasium was also one of the sponsors of our Fall Festival. We hope you were able to check them out and spin the prize wheel. We appreciate the support Mathnasium has given to Wards Creek Elementary PTO and we hope that you will go check them out! (PS: Tell them you heard about them from the PTO!!)

Did you have a BLAST at the Fall Festival? We hope the answer is YES!! We had a great time putting together the festival and it was such an amazing night seeing all the Warrior Families out there together having fun!!
Did you place an entry to win this giant tub of candy?? How many pieces did YOU think were in there? Well, we are happy to announce the answer and the winner.... *drum roll please*
4th Grader Ashley!!! We were super excited to visit her in Ms. Lawless's classroom to deliver her prize and as you can see - she was excited too!! She guessed that there were 473 pieces in the jar and the correct answer was 476. Great job, Ashley!
With each Fall Festival, Wards Creek also hosts a Business Expo - a great way for local businesses or sales representatives to showcase their goods and services. Fall Festival brings in hundreds of Wards Creek Families, so what better way to get the word out for your business!? Table space is limited and available on a first come, first serve basis, so reserve today to ensure you have a table.
Tables can be reserved for $25 each. Current silver, gold, and platinum business partners receive one table for FREE! All other business partners reserve a table for $10 each.
Fill out this form and return it to the PTO (front desk of the school or your child's teacher). You can also email the form to WardsCreekPTO@gmail.com and discuss payment options at that time.
Thank you for your continued support of Wards Creek Elementary!
It's that time of the year again - everyone's favorite Fall Festival is just around the corner!!! This year's festival will have some old favorites and some new treats too - something for all ages to enjoy!

Wards Creek Elementary PTO is excited to introduce you to another 2017-2018 Business Partner:
Smiles by Glenos!!
Dr. Glenos and his team have been providing outstanding orthodontic care to children, teens, and adults in St. Johns County for many years. In fact, Dr. Glenos is one of a small handful of orthodontists that is board-certified to care for patients of all ages! Less than 20% of orthodontists have achieved this designation and his commitment to nothing but the very best shows up in smiles all around town!
Smiles by Glenos has a wide array of services ranging from traditional braces, clear braces, hidden braces, invisible braces (several kinds, including Invisalign), and much, much more!! Visit their website to see all of the orthodontic services they provide.
The staff at Smiles by Glenos can help you navigate insurance. They accept most major credit cards and insurance plans. They also have affordable payment plans to make the process a smooth one. Their front desk staff is so friendly and easy to work with, give them a call!
Smiles by Glenos has two locations in St. Johns County to serve you. Located just minutes from WCES, the St. Johns office is off Racetrack Road. They also have an office near Flagler Hospital off US1.
We hope you will visit Smiles by Glenos for all of your orthodontist needs! And if you're already a patient there, tell them THANK YOU for supporting Wards Creek Elementary!!
The Wards Creek PTO is made up of parent volunteers and staff members at Wards Creek Elementary in St. Augustine, Florida.
