Volunteer with Blessings in a Backpack!

9/2/2022 11:26 am

Blessings in a Backpack

If you’re looking for a way to plug in and put some good into the universe at the same time, you are gladly invited to join the Sister School volunteer base.


We support packing and distributing Blessings in a Backpack on Friday mornings at Spring Shadows Elementary as well as facilitate whatever they need in lieu of a PTA during the school year. In the past, the Sister School Committee has done coat drives, turkey drives before Thanksgiving, STAAR snack bags and encouraging notes, teacher appreciation breakfasts and coffees - you name it, if they ask, we try very hard to make it happen for them.

As you can guess, we need a variety of talents, so if you’d like to stay in the know with ways to help PLEASE click the signup genius HERE.

 

By signing up, you are not committing to Blessings in a Backpack deliveries on Fridays; you are committing to helping Spring Shadows Elementary. The committee will be sending a Blessings in a Backpack sign-up once they have a team. Currently they are building their volunteer base so we know who to contact with volunteer opportunities as they arise. Thanks so much for your happy hearts!
 

Questions? Reach out to TK Harrison or Heather Braniff! We'd love to give you more information.

SPECIAL THANKS

Thank You Green Png, Transparent Png

As a busy September comes to a close we want to thank the following volunteers and committees for their hard work at WCE this month.  They are truly helping to make this "A Year for the Ages!"

Our Homeroom Coordinators Cassie Greenway and Courtney Robertson for all of their hard work behind the scenes working with this year's homeroom parents and for leading another great homeroom parent training meeting at the end of August.  

The Birthday Marquee Coordinator Lisa Hodges for overseeing the sales of the birthday marquees and for working with the front office to get those names on the birthday marquee this month and the rest of the school year.  We know how excited kids are to see their names on the marquee!

Our new Social Media Coordinator Annie McQueen for helping keep us all informed of what's happening around WCE. And there is alot to keep us informed about!  

The PGP/GT Liaisons for organizing and hosting a Bendwood Parents Meeting at WCE.  This was a great chance for parents to get their questions answered and to learn more about the Spiral program: CrystalLee Potts, Emily Raines, Shayla Russell.

Odyssey of the Mind Chair Mariju Wille for hosting a very informative Odyssey of the Mind information session and helping to spread the word about OM!

The newly formed Internal Needs Committee (Brandi Stanton, Ashleigh Davis and Ashley Kunco) and the heart of Wilchester, Amanda Dikdan, for the work they have already done supporting the WCE community. And a big thanks to everyone at WCE who has donated snacks and hygiene packs this month!
