Blue Ribbon School of Excellence
"Smile: Today's a new day."
Second semester has started off in slow gear because of the weather. The students received one extra day starting back to school after the winter break. The cold has kept students and teachers home for several more day, and this is just January! Students and teachers are working hard to learn all they can before the big test this spring. Students in the second grade had the top scores in the STAR reading and math tests. Mr. Crisp wanted everyone to know how proud WES is of the two new second teachers and their students. Way to go students and teachers! The students and teachers were very happy to show off the two trophies they won!The basketball teams are in the middle of the Area 6 Tournament, championship games should be play Friday January 31st if the weather holds. The teams in the county and two other teams outside the county have played hard and show what winners they all are. So come in out of the cold and enjoy a game or two this week.
The faculty and staff encourage parents/guardian to stay involved with their child's education. Whiteville Elementary School wants parents/guardian and other adults in the community to become partners with the staff, administrators, and teachers helping us to give your child the best education they can get. Parents should keep in contact with their child's teacher(s) all through their child's education not just during the early years. The PTI Team Meeting is February 18th starting at 6:00p.m. Make sure to mark your calendars for this date, this is one PTI Team meeting you will not want to miss. Rev.
