WES CSC, Gives Back to WES

With the money that was raised from our Valentine's Day Social, the CSC Members decided that they wanted to give back to WES. That being said, two giant sized Connect 4, yard games have been purchased for the building. Our hope is that students will use their SOAR tickets to purchase time at the Connect 4 game and that teachers will use the Connect 4 game, as a classroom reward. Two coffee pots were also purchased. The coffee pots will be used during our Veterans Day Assembly and for any building activities, where coffee is requested (WES Brew Crew, building functions, etc.). An Igloo cooler was purchased, so we have a cooler to put our ice in, when we host our annual Alex's Lemonade Stands. Lastly, we donated a WalMart gift card to the nurse's room, so they can buy some extra clothes for kids who may need to change their clothes at school!
