Exciting Summer Improvements

As we get ready to head into the summer months, the excitement at WES has not dropped one bit! Our Summer@WES campers will ensure our hallways are filled with laughter, our teachers will be learning exciting new strategies through professional development, and our facilities will continue to undergo enhancements. 

We have a number of exciting campus improvement projects occurring over the summer. For the past two years, funded largely by the generosity of our community through Raise The Paddle at the Auction Gala, we have been updating our furniture throughout the building. The Nursery, Pre-K, and Kindergarten classrooms will be transformed with all new furniture, including solid wood tables and chairs, new dramatic play equipment, and new sensory tables. The furniture is designed to optimize space and create a beautiful, playful, and functional environment for our youngest Dragons. Updated desks and chairs will also be installed in our elementary world language classrooms.

Next, we will be replacing the windows in the classrooms for Grades 1-5. The new windows will not only beautify those spaces, they will also help us reduce our energy footprint, moderate classroom temperatures more efficiently, and lessen noise distractions from outside. 

And let’s not forget about the new playground by the Turf Field, which we all raised our paddles for this year at the Auction Gala! This is a multi-year project, but this summer, the space will be cleared, a beautiful new fence will be built, and we will begin installing new pieces of playground equipment. 

We can’t wait for our Dragons to see the new looks when they return to campus in the fall!
