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!
Reminder!! Wednesday, April 25th is the deadline to order you summertime learning workbooks! The books are for students going into Pre-K through 8th grade and contain an 8-week plan to keep your student engaged during the summer (but in a fun way!).
Here is the order form - you can pay with cash or check (written to WCES PTO). Order today!!
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!

The Wards Creek Elementary Extended Day program is now taking early registration for the 2018-2019 school year. If you register before April 6th you receive half off the registration fee (usually $80/child, discounted price = $40/child). This is a great deal, so get your forms in when you get back from spring break!!
Download the registration form here!!
Extended Day options include before care (6:30-8:15 am), after care (3:00-6:00), or an option for both before and after care. New this year is a drop in punch card program. Punch cards will contain 18 fun-filled visits to extended day for $360. Only one card per family needed and will include all that extended day offers (snack, drink, activities, etc) and the team requests a 24 hour notice that you will be using the service!! No registration fee required for the punch card, but please fill out the registration form!
Any questions, please contact Ms. King, Extended Day Coordinator at Christina.King@stjohns.k12.fl.us or 904-547-8737. (Please don't ask the PTO because while we <3 you all, we are only sharing this message, we don't know!)
Spring Break is upon us and probably the last thing you want to think about is FSA Testing (right?!). BUT We really do need your help. The school is required to have a certain number of monitors for testing for our students and there are still gaps that need to be filled. Can you spare 2-3 hours of a day? This is the easiest volunteer job you'll ever have. You come and make sure no funny business is happening during testing. You might help grab a new sharp pencil for someone... but really, that's about as hard as it gets!! Please consider volunteering your time and know that it is GREATLY appreciated by those trying to meet testing goals.
