Back to school is just around the corner and we have some exciting changes to our membership program that we would like to share with you!! Our basic membership will still be available - same as it's been all these years ($10 for your entire family!), but this year we are also offering expanded memberships! Check out the information below and start thinking about which option is best for your family! Every membership includes a local business discount card with some GREAT new partners this year!
Beyond joining, it's up to you how far you take your membership. Want to come to all the meetings? GREAT! Want to come to none of the meetings? That's ok too!! Have a lot of time to give?? COME SIT BY ME!!! Have no time to give?? We understand and we appreciate your financial support just as much!!! We promise, NO PRESSURE!! Just join!!
We are happy to share that our friends at Murabella Animal Hospital are conducting a school supply drive to benefit local students. They are collecting supplies until August 10th at their location (3625 Pacetti Road). They can be reached at (904) 940-9401 if you have any questions! Please consider buying a little extra this year to support those who are unable to purchase all of the needed supplies! Thank you, Murabella Animal Hospital for loving on our kids!! <3
🎤 Important information about entering the school! (If you're an existing parent, you probably already know this....)
📚 In order to go beyond the front desk of the school, you need to be registered as a volunteer with the county. This means: if you want to have lunch with your child in the cafeteria, if you want to visit the classroom for a holiday party/event, volunteer your time, visit the library, anything!!!
✅ You should only need to do it once and if you have questions if you're registered or not, call the school and ask (904-547-8730)!! This is NOT a PTO program, rather a school/district program but we want everyone to know!
⏰ It takes several weeks to get in the system, so register yourself! Tell the aunts/uncles/grandparents who might ever come too - they need to be registered too!!
School supply kits make your life easy!! Order online at http://www.educationalproducts.com/shoppacks and use the code WAR132 to find all of the information for your student for the 2018-2019 school year! It doesn't matter who their teacher will be, supply lists are all the same for a grade level. The deadline to order is July 8th. Packs will be delivered to your house before school begins so you can sort and label if you want to! Also, the packs DO include brand name items - check each list for more information!! A portion of the proceeds from this sale go back to the PTO which means they go back to YOUR student and school!! We thank you for supporting the Wards Creek Warriors!!
Questions? Email the PTO at WardsCreekPTO@gmail.com
FYI: The deadline has been extended for you to order your school supply kits for next school year! The new deadline is July 8th!! See this post for all of the details on how to order!!
Please take 3 minutes to complete this survey about the Wards Creek PTO. We are interested in hearing from you to see what's going well, where we could improve, what events you liked this year and what you'd like to see in the coming year! We appreciate your time!

We still have a few yearbooks left!! You can still get yours by sending in $18 cash or a check written out to WCE (don't forget to write 2 phone numbers on your check!). Don't miss out! When they are gone, they are gone!!
PS: The money goes to the teacher or front desk. Yearbooks are not run by the PTO, we are just the messenger! :)
This year is nearly over (can you believe it?!) and the Wards Creek PTO is taking orders for school supply kits for the next school year. The kits can be ordered online until June 12th by visiting EPI's website at https://www.educationalproducts.com/shoppacks/ and use code WAR132. The kits will be delivered directly to your home - please DO NOT use the school's address as the 'ship to' address! Each kit will contain all of the school supplies that your Warrior will need for next year's school year, and you won't have to hunt for sales and face the crowds!!
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the Wards Creek PTO at WardsCreekPTO@gmail.com and we will be glad to help in any way that we can!
Calling all 5th Grade Parents!! It's probably hard to believe, but your babies are headed to middle school in just a few short weeks! Wards Creek Elementary has loved helping grow, inspire, and educate your child and what better way to memorialize your time at WCES than with a Legacy Brick!! Orders for bricks are now being taken and you can own a spot on the entrance walkways for years to come. You can celebrate your child's achievement, memorialize as a family, celebrate a favorite teacher or staff member who made a difference in your family's life or even promote your business's support of WCES.
Bricks are 4x8" and include three lines of text (18 characters per line). They are $35 each.
You can download the order form here. Orders may be paid online (includes a $1.50 convenience fee), cash, or check written to WCES PTO. ALL orders require a printed order form to be submitted to the school. If you have questions about the bricks or need further information, feel free to contact us at WardsCreekPTO@gmail.com .
Congratulations 5th graders!! We wish you many successes as you travel to middle school and beyond and we look forward to seeing your name on the walkway at WCES as a fond memory of your time here!
The Wards Creek PTO is made up of parent volunteers and staff members at Wards Creek Elementary in St. Augustine, Florida.
