Sister School Program
Wilchester Elementary is part of SBISD Sister School Solution Program and has proudly supported Spring Shadows Elementary as our sister school since 2011. The program is designed to improve education, support teachers’ needs and most importantly to support the basic clothing and food needs of children. Our student council is actively involved in conducting drives such as our annual coat and turkey drives. Other activities include the implementation of Blessings in a Backpack with many Spring Shadows students. Both schools benefit from a community partnership that teaches everyone firsthand about gratitude and giving back.
When completing the 2022-2023 Big Form, you have an opportunity to donate money to the Sister School program. Additionally, there will be plenty of opportunities to volunteer throughout the year. Sign up to be on our committee, and we will contact you about specific ways you can help! Examples are Blessings in a Backpack distribution, Coat Drive, Turkey Drive, and a Teacher Appreciation luncheon.
The Blessings in a Backpack team for our sister school, Spring Shadows invites you to help deliver weekend food on Fridays. We meet about 9:15 at Spring Shadows and are usually done by 10am. To sign up and for more information, please click here.

EASY WAYS TO HELP THE SCHOOL
UPCOMING PTA MEETING
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!
