New Families Co-Chairs:

Kelly Frew

Kathleen Graff

On behalf of Principal Disch and the PTO, we are excited to welcome all our new families to WUES! We hope that you will find it a welcoming place with an army of parents, teachers and administrators ready to help you find your way.


Our names are Kelly Frew and Kathleen Graf. Together we are the New Family Chairs for the PTO. We strive to make WUES feel as small as possible by connecting you with other families, making you feel welcome, and helping you navigate our amazing school.


In a normal year, we organize and promote coffees where new families get together to meet some familiar faces and ask us basic questions. When can I bring my child lunch? What do we do when it rains during school pick up? Is there a carpool line? How can I get involved?


As with everything this year, our job will be a little different. Without a classroom setting, we recognize that it may be difficult for you and your child to make friends and get connected at WUES. If you are interested in connecting with an existing WUES family please let us know! We will try to put you in touch with a family who has a child in the same grade. Our emails are below:

As the school year kicks off, a great resource will be your room parent. As soon as that person has been assigned, he/she will reach out to everyone in the class with important information on annual activities – again things are fluid, so many activities are up in the air.


In the meantime, please reach out to your grade level administrator for any operational, instructional or classroom support, their emails are below:


• Kindergarten & 1st Grade, Amber Pinchback

• 2nd & 3rd Grade, Daphne Rawlinson

• 4th & 5th Grade, Stephanie Lugo
