Girls on the Run

Wilchester is bringing back Girls on the Run!!


Julie Knapp, Cecilia Elizondo, Fabi Mirza and Jenn Whalen will be the team coaches for an incredible return of Girls on the Run to WCE for girls grades 3-5th.

Registration starts August 1 and lottery will run on August 26th!!

What is Girls on the Run?
If you haven't heard of GOTR, it's much more than running. Their mission in a nutshell is a
program that works to encourage girls to develop self respect and healthy lifestyles through
dynamic, interactive lessons and running games, culminating in a celebratory 5K run.


A few things to know:

 Each team has 8-15 girls (open to grades 3-5 only).
 It's a 10 week program in the Fall. We will meet Mondays and Wednesdays after school until 4:35 pm. Practices start Wednesday, September 7. In other words, it's a two day/week program for 10 weeks.
 The girls will stay after school, given time to change and grab a snack. Parents then pick up from the coaches at 4:35 pm after practice.
 The season culminates in a 5K at Rice University scheduled for Saturday, November 19.
 Registration is done by lottery. You will be notified on August 27.
 See registration link below.
 Feel free to contact Julie Knapp 832-788-1334 or if you have any questions.

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!

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