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!!
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!!

This past Friday, Wards Creek Elementary held the 1st quarter TORCH party celebration. Oh my goodness did those Warriors DANCE!! It was so much fun seeing them celebrate their hard work and accomplishments and it's safe to say, they had a blast!! PTO was so glad to sponsor the event refreshments (lots of juice and cookies!) and the day would not have been a success without the help of some awesome volunteers! Too many to name (and would not want to leave anyone out!) but THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH!! You are the P in the PTO and we couldn't do it without you!! And for all of you PTO members following along at home - this is a great example of what your membership dollars help to sponsor throughout the year. So thank you for joining us!! Here are a few of the smiling volunteer faces at the TORCH party....
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!
