We hope that everyone has started to relax and enjoy the summer weather.  We all have earned the time off after experiencing such an unprecedented school year. Our time together in the building learning and growing together was wonderful! The students made us all proud with their hard work and collaboration. They faced challenges head on and willingly engaged in the work the teachers provided. We grew closer as a family by enjoying time together at our Family Picnic, Career Day, grade level field trips, after school activities and of course all the amazing Character Assemblies. Although we were not able to end the year together in the building, we remained connected through Distance Learning. The change was easier for some than others, nevertheless we are so proud of how our students interacted with one another.  Our children continued to show care, respect, responsibility and hard work.   The historical events that have occurred during the past four months will be remembered by all of us. And, we hope that in some way we all will feel that being part of the WHES family made it easier. Please know that we are truly thankful for each and every one of you!
