Spotlight Leaders:

To recognize when students are great leaders of their lives, classroom teachers select a Spotlight Leader each month. To celebrate this success, Spotlight Leaders have a special luncheon with the principals, receive an Spotlight Leader bracelet, and have their pictures showcased on both the Spotlight Leader bulletin board and hallway monitor. Lastly, they are recognized at the monthly school-wide Celebrate Success Assembly with a certificate. We have found this recognition to be very successful with inspiring students to make great choices and be great leaders. For September, teachers selected a Spotlight Leader from their classes that set a great example for others by using Habit 1: Be Proactive. These students make good choices about how they respond to something happening. They are always ready with a calm attitude, and they make preparations so the right things happen. When things don’t go their way, they might not be happy, BUT they stay calm. They are proactive, not reactive. We are very proud to announce our September Spotlight Leaders: Avalee Evans, Layla Fisher, Brentley Luikart, Brayson Branham, Hailey Tomasek, Brayden Clark, Kora Thompson, Sadie Smith, Graycen Dixon, Jackson Taylor, Jayden Wiseman, Finn Willard, Liam Kinder, Aven Kyle, Ava gore, Lillian White, Matylda Fabus, Joey Rader, Brianna Feier, Alainah Hoffer, Kendal Stidham, Hannah Mukiri, Hailey Douglas, Adrienne Agosti, Eli Stevenson, Landon Meeks, Grace Meddings, Adalyn Pauley, Hayden Gillispie, Ryand Burchett, Blake Mel-ton, Robby Keiffer.

We continue to develop our leadership culture at WES by implementing the Leader in Me process. Through this process, students are empowered to become great leaders of their lives. It is our belief that every child deserves to be taught how to be a leader, and we do this by teaching the 7 Habits of Happy Kids, goal setting and tracking, how to take care of our community through service projects, how to explore leadership through leadership roles, and much more. You will be amazed at how “common sense” and down to earth these simple life principles are through the eyes of your child! We are looking forward to continuing our leadership journey with our school community!

 School Officer:

We welcome Winfield City police officer Higginbotham to our school family as our new resource officer. he has served on the police force for several years and has specific training in matters of school and child safety. you will of-ten see his police cruiser parked at WES as he offers protection, guidance, and safety to our students, staff, and volunteers. thank you Chief Starcher for supporting our school and allowing Officer Higginbotham to be a part of our school.

Morning Drop off: 
The safety of our children is at the heart of all that we do at WES. As a result, please be reminded that students must exit from the right-side of the car. A dangerous situation is created when students and/or drivers exit from the left side of the car into the oncoming traffic. If you absolutely must exit from the left side of the car, please pull up past the STOP sign. The road is wider in this location and presents less of a hazard. Thank you in advance for abiding by this important safety system, and for entrusting us with the care of your children.
