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!

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!!)
Mathnasium of St. Augustine
196 Capulet Drive, Suite 4, St. Augustine FL 32092
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!

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!!
