WES Kicks Off First Fridays With a Casserole Drive

WES’s commitment to community service continues this year with First Fridays!

While we cannot have our students gather for service projects as we have in previous years, on the First Friday of each month, WES will keep to our tradition of coming together to support the community through service projects.

Each month we will designate a project that families are invited to participate in. When needed, supplies for projects will be provided and either sent home with students or made available for contactless pick-up. Families can engage in the project at their convenience, and for projects that need to be returned, drop them off at WES in a designated timeframe.

We will kick off our First Fridays this year with a casserole drive, in partnership with Small Things Matter, an organization founded on the idea that small acts of kindness can have a big impact. Small Things Matter will pick up casseroles from WES and distribute them to local families in need.

Your family is invited to make your favorite casserole to share! Be sure to label the casserole with the name of the dish, all ingredients, and directions on how to heat or cook. You can also add a personal note to the casserole. Please freeze the casserole and deliver to the WES colonnade on Monday, October 5, or Tuesday, October 6, between 8 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. We’ll keep your casserole frozen until Small Things Matter picks all donations up on Tuesday afternoon.

If you plan to participate, please email Mrs. Brockway (tbrockway@w-e-s.org) with an approximate delivery day and time, so we can be sure to bring your casserole in quickly!

We’d love to see photos, too! Please snap a picture of your family–either in the mess of the process or with your finished product–and share with us by emailing photos to communications@w-e-s.org or by sharing on your own social media and tagging @goWESdragons.
