WCE FOOD PANTRY ~ DONATIONS NEEDED!

The food pantry is requesting donations of canned chicken, soups, vegetables and fruit, as well as pasta.  We support our participating families year long with weekly food and school snacks.  The food pantry is funded by PTA donations, individual direct donations of food or funds, and the annual food drive. Donations can be dropped off in the shopping cart inside the front (east end) doors.

It is easy to be part of our backpack program!  Simply contact your teacher, the front desk, or our social worker Barbara Robinson if you want to receive a weekly food pantry backpack.

Want to be a Food Pantry volunteer?  Join us each Friday in the cafeteria immediately after drop off! For more information, contact Jo-Nell Herndon.


PARENTS: STOP Creating Safety Hazards at School!

Please be advised that the DPD is being notified of traffic violations at our school.  One particular violation we continue to see regularly is parking to close to or into crosswalks.  To clarify, according to Sect. 54-458 (6) of the city and county of Denver traffic code:  "It is unlawful for any person to stop or to allow a vehicle to stand except when necessary to avoid conflict with other traffic, or in compliance with law or the directions of a police officer or traffic control device within 20 feet of a crosswalk or stop sign at an intersection."  

Are you a parent who wants to see real change? Be part of the solution and consider joining the Safety Committee. Contact Maggie Broadrick if interested.
