"Smile: Today's a new day."
WES had a great Thanksgiving holiday. The town of Whiteville, TN had a Christmas parade and WES had a float in the parade. The Cheerleaders, basketball players both boys and girls and members of the faculty and staff walked in front of the float or beside it. The morning of November 30th found some of the students and faculty at the school getting the float ready. Mr. Jerry Rhodes used his truck to put the float that Tennessee Gas Pipeline let the school borrow. Thanks to Mr. Rhodes, Ms. Katrina Emmons, Ms. Gonzalez, Ms. Prewitt, and many more teachers and staff and numerous students who made the float a winner.There is much more to do before the end of the first semester December 20th. There are basketball games, (home and away), health screenings, a Christmas Program (December 17th) and mid-term exams all before the "Winter Break" starts. Keep up with all the activities at the school by checking the calendar on this web site and the calendar sent home. You know you do not want to miss anything.
