Hello WGE Tiger families, 

Just a few reminders for the upcoming week.


PTA News:

Our next PTA meeting is Tuesday, April 20 at 7:00 p.m., immediately following the Principal Chat. This will be an important meeting as we will vote on our 2021-2022 PTA Board members and talk about PTA plan for in-person classes. We hope you will join us! 

As a reminder,  AmazonSmile is a great way to support the PTA! Choose our PTA to receive funds anytime you make a purchase through AmazonSmile. There is no additional cost to you! Take a look at this Konstella post with instructions about how to set it up through the app. Thank you for your generosity! 

Testing: CAASP testing has begun. Good luck to all of our students! 


San José Unified is expanding our in-person substitute teaching cohort and seeking to hire collaborative professionals to support our students in this dynamic environment. We hope that might be you! Selected substitutes will earn $200 per day, receive a Mac laptop for teaching use, and participate in training on our technology platforms prior to starting. We have both day-to-day roles, as well as a limited number of long-term substitute opportunities available. For more information and to apply, please visit: http://go.sjusd.org/sub. You may also contact talent@sjusd.org. We look forward to connecting with you! 

As Covid safety protocols now permit, we are pleased to offer weekly library book pick-ups from the WGE library for all grades, Thursdays, 3-4pm starting April 8. Library books can be requested through our Destiny Discover online catalog. For details click here or go to https://sites.google.com/sjusd.org/wgelibrary/request-wge-books​.

We are excited to announce a live author visit with Nick Bruel for interested 3rd-5th grade classes on Wednesday, April 7. Author and illustrator of the popular Bad Kitty series, Nick Bruel will visit virtually to celebrate the release of his latest book - Bad Kitty Goes on Vacation. WGE live author events are possible through our continued partnership with Hicklebee's Books. To help support this partnership, Nick Bruel's books can be ordered at: http://www.hicklebees.com/NickBruel Orders are due no later than April 10 and will be delivered to WGE for pick-up. Please be sure to include a name for book plate personalization. Thanks!
