Dear WRE Family,


It seems so strange to begin a new school year when we didn’t get to finish last school year together.  From March until now, so many changes have occurred and I know we’ve all had thoughts of whether normalcy will ever return.  As the 2020-2021 school year begins and I start my second year as President, my hope is that our community knows we are still working hard to make this year special for your families and our staff. 


We are over 1,000 members strong and the year hasn’t even begun.  Thank you for your support during this uncertain time!  Your school supplies and spirit wear orders and Friend of WRE contributions have proven the WRE community to be loyal and devoted.  We may not start the year as we intended or how we envisioned, but I know once we meet again, we will have what we need to make events even better than before.  If you haven’t joined yet, please visit our WRE Store to buy a membership for everyone in your family.


I am a mom of three daughters, two attend WRE in 4th and 6th grades and one is in 7th grade at LHJH.  My family loves living in Lake Highlands so much that we moved away for six years and came right back to where we truly wanted to raise our girls.  It’s important to me that you all know I am available to answer your questions at any time.  Please feel free to email me, no questions or concerns are considered insignificant.


Thank you!  I hope to see you all sometime in the very near future.
