WUES depends on input, collaboration, and cooperation from our community. As a parent, your input is welcomed and encouraged by the WUES Site-Based Management Team. The Site-Based Management Team is a representative group of teachers, parents, and administration that meets each month to discuss and implement plans and processes to lead our school. The issues discussed are varied and significant. In addition to addressing day-to-day leadership issues, the team develops the School Improvement Plan to help drive the school forward, including action steps. Discussions can include implementing programs, modifications to the school day or procedures, or buildings or grounds changes.
We love parent input. If you have any comments or suggestions on previous issues listed in the minutes, or for upcoming items, please email one of the parent representatives. Contact information and meeting minutes are available online: http://www.ucps.k12.nc.us/domain/1581. The Site-Based Team meets the fourth Thursday of each month.
All afternoon transportation changes must be communicated in writing. You can choose one of the following written methods of communication:
All changes must be received before 1:30 pm.

Thank you for your cooperation in getting all children home safely.
On Thursday, August 11th, members of the 1966 graduating class met to present a plaque to the principal and librarian of Western Union Elementary school in honor of Mr. John Brown, the school’s first principal. In 1966, Western Union was an All-Black High School. Several members of the graduating class toured the school with Principal Kristi Williford to see how it has changed and what things remained the same.
Can you believe how fast this summer is going? We hope everyone is taking care of the three summer “R’s” – Resting, Relaxing and Reading. At Western Union Elementary we are busy preparing for the 2016-17 school year. Even though students and staff are not at school, there is a lot of work that happens during the summer.
Students at Western Union Elementary recently raised money and learned about Heifer International’s global initiative to work with communities to end hunger and poverty around the world. Students learned more about Heifer International’s mission of helping families to become more self-reliant and how their efforts will make a difference in the lives of people that are in need.
