Welcome to Wilchester!


A note from the Welcome Committee…

We are here to help make your transition into our school as smooth and easy as possible!  Wilchester is a very special school.   We are confident that your children will feel welcome and safe here, while receiving an exceptional education. We have outstanding teachers, an excellent staff, and a wonderful community of involved parents.


This handbook is provided to help answer some basic questions and get your year started off smoothly.  Just a few years ago our children were starting at Wilchester, we were new, and we felt quite overwhelmed.


We are keenly aware that this handbook can’t possibly answer all of your questions, therefore, please contact us at any point if you have additional questions or concerns.   No question is too small or too silly when it comes to our children.  We are here for you all year long and will do our best to help.

Our goal is for you to have a great experience at Wilchester this year.

Thank You Green Png, Transparent Png

It's hard to believe that tomorrow we will turn the calendar to March!  And what a busy March we have planned here at WCE!  But before we jump into the next month, it's time to thank those PTA volunteers who helped make February such a success!

Thank you to the STEMFest team for putting on another fantastic event!  This event continues to be a school favorite!  A huge thanks to the STEMFest Committee: D'Lisia Bergeron, Kelly Porter, Randi Koenig, Katharine Larson.  And a big thank you to those who helped out before the event and the night of: Jessica Candler, Jen Ferguson, Ashley Flowers, Maggie Gardiner, Yeliz Gunes, Kimberly Lair, Valerie McIntosh, Gabriela Mladenova, Kellie Patrick, Lauren Shea, Brandi Stanton, Lindsay Yurchak.

A huge thanks to the members of the Nominating Committee who worked tirelessly throughout February to nominate the 2023-24 PTA Executive Board.  The slate will be announced and voted on at the Friday meeting - don't miss it!  Thank you to Chair of the Nominating Committee Melissa Treadway and committee members Ashley Kerr, Rebekah James, Courtney Prochaska, Kami Buri, Amy Bartholomew.

A big Texan thank you for another successful Go Texan Day to Linley Dieringer and Holly Stephenson for decking out the school in its rodeo best!  

Thank you again to everyone for helping make this truly "A Year for the Ages"!
