News & Announcements

It's Walk-a-thon Time!!!!!

WPTC 6th Annual Walk-a-thon – Friday, September 29
We are so excited to announce that the 6th Annual WPS/WIS Walk-a-thon is Friday, September 29. It is a great way to raise funds for WPTC and our schools while getting the students outside and moving. This event serves as our WPTC fall fundraiser and the funds are used to sponsor all the amazing year end events happening at the schools (field days, 2nd/5th/8th grade celebrations, teacher/staff appreciation luncheons, etc.)

Parents - we are asking for your help in 4 ways:

1. Please return your child's permission form by September 21st. In order for your student to participate we need you to complete this form. This year the form is available online:

WPS permission form: https://goo.gl/forms/tOEWcJoWrJV4nQ4K3 - WPS

WIS permission form: https://goo.gl/forms/wzO2dKVt4Npbp9Rl2 - WIS

2. Please consider donating at least $10 for each of your WPS and WIS students and submit this pledge on the above noted form by Thursday, September 21st.

3. Help your child collect donations from friends and family. All money will be due Thursday, September 21st which is the day of the walk. We have some awesome prizes this year that we think the students will love - especially a ride to school in a police car or fire truck. The prizes are listed on the attached forms.

4. Volunteer the day of the event . We will need volunteers to help with the classes and others to remain at each school to pass out refreshments. If you have children at both WPS and WIS walking in the afternoon staying at one of the schools to help pass out apples and water might be the best option. This way you will have the chance to see both children since each child will start and end the walk at "their" school but will enjoy their snack at the opposite school.

More details on attached forms. Thanks!!

Watch D.O.G.S. Kickoff September 18th 6:30-8:00 pm

On Monday, September 18th from 6:30 – 7:30 pm we will be having our 4th annual ‘Dads and Kids’ Pizza Night at our school. You will meet in the WIS cafeteria at 6:30 pm for FREE pizza and drinks. At 7:15 we will have a presentation about our Watch D.O.G.S.® (Dads Of Great Students) Program. Watch D.O.G.S.® is an innovative program being used by schools across America which helps them to be positively impacted by the committed involvement of fathers and father-figures in their student’s life. Our goal is to have you spend at least one day this year at the school to be a positive male role model and to provide an extra set of eyes and ears.

Dads, granddads, uncles, step-dads and adult brothers . . . this is your chance to have a night out alone with your student in a fun atmosphere at school.

In order to participate, you need to do two things:

1. Fill out this form clicking here. by September 14th saying that you will attend the pizza night so we’ll have an accurate head count for the food.

2. Mark your calendars, and we’ll see you Monday, September 18th from 6:30 – 7:30 pm.
