    Please know that our committment is strong to help our military families feel welcome at our school. There are many programs we have available throughout the year to recognize the sacrifices and contributions you make.  At the beginning of every school year, our counselors meet for lunch with all of our new students.  We have an incredible Veteran's Day Celebration called "Pastries With Patriots,"  and invite you to participate in a Wall of Pride Showcase, and a festive parade on that day in November. During the holiday season, we invite all WCES students to create cards and counselors send them to our troops.  In April, WCES celebrates the Month of the Military Child and our whole school "Purples Up" to show our support.In partnership with Quantico MCB,  we also offer a 3 part series to help support our military students by strengthening their coping and resillience skills.
