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!
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!!!
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!
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!!
Top to bottom: Our nurse Lee is growing an Avocado Baby, Our front office staff as James and the Giant Peach, Mrs. King from James and the Giant Peach, 4th Grade Team Trolls, Library staff celebrate Elephant & Piggie style, Kindergarten is a little (and sometimes a LOT!) batty, James and the Giant Peach rounds up the parade with a confetti float!
Tickets for the Mother-Son event (Minute to Win it!) are in your child's folders today. So when they get home from school, make sure you ask them to pull them out so you can put them in a safe spot! You should receive admission tickets and tickets for any pizzas that you ordered.
If you have any questions or issues please contact Mrs. Shreves . We look forward to seeing you tomorrow night!!
PS: If you forgot to pre-order your tickets, don't forget you can purchase admission at the door for $10 each mother/son pair and $5 for each additional son. These tickets do not include pizza (No extra pizzas will be available for purchase), but you can still come play and compete to win! Hope to see you then!
PPS: We still need volunteers!! http://www.signupgenius.com/go/4090e45afaf2aa1fa7-wards
