The school year is nearly here and there are some exciting events coming up next week. We hope you'll come out and meet the teachers and staff, join the PTO, buy your shirt, and enjoy some friendships like only Wards Creek can do!!
It's time for that world famous Daddy Daughter Dance!!! Pre-order tickets are on sale now through Friday, February 1st. You can send the form to school with check (written to WCES PTO) or cash or you can purchase tickets in our online store.
We are 1 week away from Noodles and Numbers - our first ALL FREE event of the year!! Join us on Friday, September 14 from 5-8 pm!! Start the night with a free pasta dinner (from 5-6 pm), a super quick (we promise!) PTO meeting & follow up with a fun night of math games for all ages (from 6-8 pm), thanks to our friends at Mathnasium. Research shows that family engagement leads to greater student success, so start your year off right! Want more information on what math night is? Check out this video to see how much fun one Tampa area school had!
RSVP to save your spot at the table (all are welcome - this event is for all WCES families). RSVP Is not required, but if you think you're going to come, please let us know so we can make sure we have enough food and goodies for everyone!!: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/60b0d48a8af29a7f94-wces
** We need volunteers to make this night a success! (Teens needing volunteer hours are welcome!)
The Wards Creek Elementary School Spring Festival is just around the corner!! The event will take place on Friday, April 20th from 6-9 PM. Come out with your family and enjoy dinner, games, bounce houses, a HUGE basket raffle, face painting, balloon twisting, music and more! We will also feature an expo of great summer opportunities for students (camps and more!), so come out and find fun things to do this summer!
Pre-orders for tickets will take place until Monday, April 16th. You can pre-order food and tickets at a discounted price - and skip the line at the door!! We hope that you will join us!
We also need volunteers to make an event like this a success! If you can help us (a little or a lot!), we would love your help! We are also looking for middle school or high school students to help, so if you have a student needing volunteer hours, this is a great opportunity!

Calling all volunteers!! Our annual Daddy Daughter Dance is next Friday, February 23rd and we need you! This is one of our biggest events and is such a wonderful memory for all of our girls and their dads (or special someone).
As always, we’ll have raffle baskets, a photo booth keepsake, lots of desserts to enjoy and an amazing DJ playing music for everyone to boogie down! The deadline for discounted pre-sale tickets and corsages has passed but you can still pay at the door if you plan to attend! (Sorry, no corsages for sale at the door)
Door prices: $12 for Daddy/Daughter duo and $5 for each additional daughter.
Here’s the link for our volunteer signup genius. This is a great event for any volunteer hours needed at school, too (this includes middle or high school students needing hours...) These events are a LOT of work (but so much fun!) and are next to impossible without the help of our village!! Many hands make light work - so please consider joining us!
Wards Creek Elementary's 1st Annual Bingo for Books will be held on Tuesday, February 6th from 6:00-7:30 PM. Come join us for a hot dog dinner, a quick update from PTO, and lots of fun! Students and parents are invited to play - entry fee is simply a gently used book to trade. Books will be given as prizes and separated by age group (small child to adult level reading levels) for you to choose from!
We are asking you to please RSVP if you plan to attend so we have enough Bingo boards and tables set up. If you're interested in purchasing a hot dog dinner ($3 for hot dog, chips, and drink) please let us know that as well so we have enough! We look forward to seeing you!
A special thank you to the Literacy Leaders and the Media Center for organizing this event!
The Wards Creek PTO is made up of parent volunteers and staff members at Wards Creek Elementary in St. Augustine, Florida.
