News & Announcements


National Hispanic Heritage Month is celebrated September 15 - October 15 in the United States, to recognize the contributions of Hispanic and Latino Americans to the group’s heritage and culture. WPS would like to invite parents, relatives, friends, and students to share their special contributions to this wonderful time of celebration. Whether it is a display, a book, music, dance, art, cultural dress, etc...we’d love for the children at WPS to experience this special time. Please call or email Mrs. DelFiacco to let her know how we can support your effort to make National Hispanic Heritage Month a WPS event!

Vision Screening Fall 2018

Vision screening will be started in Fall, 2018. Vision screening is not a substitute for a complete eye and vision evaluation by an eye doctor. Your child is not required to undergo this vision screening if an optometrist or ophthalmologist has completed and signed a report form indicating that an examination has been administered within the previous 12 months.

Lunchroom News

It is WPS’s policy that all students have sufficient time to eat. The daily lunch and recess block is 40 minutes in length. Generally, students split their lunch block so that they have 20 minutes to eat and 20 minutes to play at recess. Nevertheless, if students need more than 20 minutes to eat, they may have up to 30 minutes (knowing they will sacrifice play time at recess). While no student will be forced from the lunchroom while dining, sometimes students feel pressured by their peers to hurry their lunch so they can rush outside to play. If your students feel they do not have sufficient time to eat, reassure them they can stay in the lunchroom, even though their peers may be leaving for the playground. If you have questions, please feel free to contact the office.
