Wilchester Recycles!

Note: The PTA has handed off recycling collection duty to our 4th graders!  Everyone is excited about the switch!


Drink it, Dump it, Dunk it!

Recycling Aluminum Cans and Plastic Bottles at Wilchester

We recycle aluminum cans and plastic bottles at Wilchester! The designated recycling bin in the cafeteria is placed next to the tray return window. Everyone must pour any remaining liquid from their containers into the cafeteria sink at the lunch tray return window BEFORE placing their plastic bottles and cans into the recycling bin. There are also designated bins in the Flex Room and by the water fountains on the playground, so teachers and parents recycle too!

Please talk with your children about the protocol and explain that after they finish their DRINK, they will then need to DUMP out the remaining liquid from their drink before DUNKING their cans and bottles into the recycling bin!

We CAN save thousands of bottles and cans from the landfill this year!

America Recycles Day! - November 15th, 2022

We will be collecting 2 to 3 liter containers along with 2 to 3 quart containers. Please make sure they are plastic containers only. Glass or cardboard will not be accepted. One plastic container per person. The flyer below shows some of the acceptable containers. Please email cayla.siegel@gmail.com for any questions you may have.

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!
