WPES Fun Run

As you may know the WPESA sponsored Fun Run this year is to help bring wood working to WPES. Mrs. Sipowicz and Mrs. Connolly have spent a year researching the best products available for elementary students and are very excited about the Maplewood Tool Chest. The Fun Run fundraiser is going to help make this a reality for our students. If you have not already done so, please log on to  FUNRUN.COM  and create your child’s account and let the pledging begin. 

THIS COMING FRIDAY the entire student body will be taking all of the tools they have learned over the past week and half about character building and head out to the Fun Run Course for 30-35 laps and fitness challenges to celebrate the end of our *hopefully* BIGGEST FUNDRAISER OF THE YEAR! 

Has your child filled you in on the wonderful progress of our fundraiser (almost $3000 raised) or the AMAZING incentive Mrs. Brewster has offered if they raise $6,000 or more (ask them!) our #Boosterthon

fundraiser is just 1 WEEK AWAY and PLEDGING IS NOW OPEN! Together we achieve more!


After much consideration, and hard work put in trying to manage the details, we have come to the conclusion that due to the lack of registration and volunteer participation, we will be unable to run a fall session of after school enrichment. However, WPESA believes strongly in the benefits of after school programming in furthering the enrichment of our children. 


In the hopes of bringing the program back this year, possibly as early as this winter, we would appreciate some feedback to the following questions:

1.  What programs would you like to see offered? 

2. How many activities would your children be interested in per week? 

3. Would you be available and/or interested in volunteering from 3:00pm - 4:30pm one or more days per week?

4.  What would you expect an 8 week program to cost?   

5. Do you have additional suggestions or comments?

 Please take some time to return your feedback to WPESA1@gmail.comWe want to hear from you! Your input and participation helps us create the best program for our community.
