Souper Bowl of Caring – February 1-5

We are gearing up for our SouperBowl of Caring service project, Monday-Friday, February 1-5, 2016!  WUES donated over 38,500 pounds of food last year to the Houston Food Bank during this food drive.  We were the number 2 SBoC donating school in the entire United States!

Please review The Houston Food Bank’s “Most Needed items.” We ask that you talk with your child about the importance of helping hungry people (both adults and children) in our community. Even though we love healthy competition, please remember the purpose of the food drive. Bring in food that you would like to eat—not just for weight. No 50 pound bags of rice will be accepted (volunteers cannot lift them and they tear the boxes)!

Like last year, we will weigh items by class and keeping a running tally. The class with the most donations will be declared WUES Souper Bowl Champion!

The Protein Challenge is back! The Food Bank’s most needed items are protien products!  Points will be awarded for each cann of tuna/chicken and jar of peanut butter.  The class that brings in the most protein points will be named Most Valuable Player!

WE NEED YOUR HELP!  It takes a lot of help to organize the collection of 19 tons of food.  Please consider volunteering your time in one of the following ways:

Food Sorters – Have a little time to spare, and need a workout? Help us sort food each morning the week of February 1-5 as students and parents bring their classroom donations to the MPR.

  Heavy Lifters – We need strong men and women who are ready to flex their muscles! We will need some assistance each morning, but help is especially needed on Friday February 5th.

To volunteer during this exciting week please, contact Danielle Mansour or Courtney Tsao.

Thank you in advance for your support to help the Houston Food Bank!  Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions! The SBoC Team:

PTO General Meeting with Guest Speaker

Please join us for 2016’s first PTO General Meeting on Tuesday, February 9, 8:00 – 9:15 a.m. in the MPR. Thank you to Martha Turner, one of our Corporate Sponsors, for providing refreshments!

Following PTO business, we are delighted to have Crystal Collier, PhD, LPC-S, Director of the Behavioral Health Institute, share great information to help us support our children:

The Science of High-Risk Behavior

Did you know the biological effects of engaging in high-risk behavior, whether it is technology, sugar or other substances, can be detected as children develop? Dr. Collier will offer information on how high-risk behavior and substances affect the brain and its development, including how to protect our families by creating balance and limits that work.

Questions: Contact Heather Curran

Two exciting projects on the horizon!

Two exciting projects on the horizon are the expansion and improvement of the back playground and a paver project commemorating the school’s 90th anniversary.  A rendering of the playground is below.   More information about both projects will be coming soon. Be sure to honor your family’s history with WUES by purchasing a paver that will be permanently installed on University Boulevard on either side of the marquee.
