Cub Character events are designed to reward our students’ positive character. Those students who are doing what they should be doing every day! WES values positive behavior and wants to make sure that this is recognized and rewarded! Voting will take place the day before the event. If you have questions regarding your child’s eligibility please call their teacher directly. Please note: Students who do not qualify for this event will have a regular minimum school day. Parents who would like to chaperone – please check in at the office (we have to cap it at two per classroom in order to have room to accommodate everyone).
