The WES PTA is honored to welcome all students, staff, parents and caregivers to Weatherstone Elementary for the 2015-2016 school year! The PTA Board continues our support of our STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) designation!
I would like to thank all of the fantastic volunteers who accomplished the following last three years:
- Purchased over 11 new Smart Boards for WES classrooms (in combo with Wake County & WES)
- Funded campus improvements including: a newly paved asphalt area and grassy soccer field for the K-2 playground
- Won over $18,000 in grants – most for the outdoor classroom
- Provided WES teachers with financial support to enhance classroom curriculum
- Funded four Cultural Arts performances and the Accelerated Reader program
- Organized our STEM Fridays and STEM EXPO
- Helped fund playground additions for K-2 playground
- Purchased new soccer goals for both the K-2 and 3-5 playgrounds
- Ordered a new sun shade for the K-2 playground (coming early fall 2015)
- Plus much more!
We are also honored to announce that our STEM program won PTO Today’s 2013 national award for Outstanding Focus on Academics and Enrichment – for which we received a $500 cash award and 10,000 Labels for Education points. We are also looking forward to the STEM EXPO in the spring of 2016. All PTA members, parents and caregivers are welcome to join our PTA meetings. Please visit our website for meeting dates!
We look forward to seeing you around WES!
