The Wells Branch Physical Education department is joining millions of others to help save lives with the American Heart Association!
We are learning how to help make a difference by raising lifesaving donations to help kids with heart disease. We are also learning about our own heart and how to keep it healthy.
We are excited about raising money for other kids – kids with heart problems and to help fund new medicines and treatments to be discovered.
Please help us make a difference and join our team by clicking on the link below.

Katie Hutcheson (from WB MUD) and Tara Fisher-Muñoz were awarded a $1000 Green Bag Grant from Keep Texas Beautiful to buy recycling receptacles for WBE.
In the near future there will be medium-large sized recycling containers around campus. When you see them, please help us in a zero waste initiative at WBE!!
Here is information from the official award letter on the PTA website :
Wells Branch Elementary was awarded a 2015-2016 Nourish U: Healthy Eating and Drinking Mini-Grant from the Michael & Susan Dell Community Collaborative for Child Health. This award of $500 will support the Discovery Food Taste Tests for the 2016 school year, and the results are to be presented at the Collaborative’s 4th Annual Wellness Summit in May, 2016.
To increase food knowledge and health, Round Rock ISD gives their students an opportunity to try a Discovery Food that is presented each month in the cafeteria. Wells Branch Elementary is currently conducting a “Taste Test” during P.E. for every class the week before the food is offered in the cafeteria. Thus, every student in the school learns what the new food is, hears about the health benefits, and gets an opportunity to see the food whole and a chance to taste the new food.
In November the children tasted spaghetti squash. They saw a whole squash, a cut squash, and heard about the health benefits of spaghetti squash. Finally, the children lined up to taste this vegetable, which was the first exposure for many. The Community Collaborative for Child Health is hosted by the Michael & Susan Dell Center for Healthy Living at the Austin Regional Campus of The University of Texas School of Public Health. For more details on the Collaborative’s efforts and to see who else was awarded a mini-grant, visit their website.
Please visit the Food Services Menu page for breakfast and lunch menus.
Kindergarten would like to challenge every class to get 100 cans donated by the 100th day of school, February 9th. The class with the most cans donated will be able to have Coach Coad join them for lunch. Yahoo!!
The cans will be donated to the Round Rock Serving Center.
Kindergarten decorated boxes with their class and are storing the cans in the classrooms. These activities will promote Kindergarten’s teambuilding and math skills. They are also talking about our community and responsibility in social studies.
This has been a great opportunity to build community within our classrooms as well as give back to our community. Kindergarten will pick up the cans Friday February 12th.
Don’t forget to turn in your Box tops to your teacher!
We’ve had a steady stream of box tops coming in this week that has put Ms. M. Sanders in the lead with 65 box tops. Ms. Durden is a close second with 63 and Ms. Taylor is not that far behind with 56 box tops.
For the Pizza Party, our overall leaders are M. Scrimpsher with 421, Ms. Shows is following with 325 and there is an extremely close race for third with Ms. Williams at 227, Ms. Folley at 225 with Ms. Baily just one behind at 224.
Although February has an extra day this year, it is our shortest month so a quick win is waiting for someone. Get in your box tops now!
Goal for the 2015 – 2016 school year is $1,000. As of 2/9/2016, WBE is currently at $801.20 or 80% of the goal. Visit the Box Tops for Education website to learn more: http://www.boxtops4education.com/
