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

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.
