    To kick off the new school year, WYES families are invited to join us for an ICE CREAM SOCIAL on Wednesday, August 2nd from 5:30 to 6:30 pm in the WYES Cafeteria. This special treat will be provided by our wonderful PTO. 

    There will be a 3rd Grade Parent Orientation on Tuesday, August 8th at 6:00 p.m. in the WYES Cafeteria. For our 3rd graders, there will be many adjustments – a new building, new friends, and different adults. This will be a wonderful opportunity for parents to ask questions and address any concerns that they may have regarding our plans and expectations for your 3rd grader. 

    We look forward to seeing all of our students at Open House on Thursday, August 10th, from 1:00–7:00 P.M. Please come by and meet your teacher.  This will also be a great opportunity to bring in your school supplies.

    Are you new to Madison County?  All new to the county WYES students are invited to an orientation during Open House - Our School Counselor, Mrs. Keys, will be doing a presentation at 2 pm in the Library.  An optional tour of the building will follow with plenty of time for Q & A.  Hope to see you there!
