Get Ready for WSES Heritage Night 2023!

February 02, 2023

Heritage Night

Help us celebrate the different cultures, traditions, and experiences that make our Mustangs who they are by contributing to our NEW Heritage Night!

Our WSES Heritage Night will take place on Thursday, February 23

Heritage Night will be a celebration where students and the community come together to celebrate and learn about the variety of cultures and traditions represented at WSES. We are excited about the many activities being planned for students and families to connect and learn about each other. 

WSES is fortunate to have numerous countries and cultures reflected through our students as well as many families who have traveled or been stationed abroad, and throughout, the United States. Heritage Night is an opportunity to learn more about fellow classmates and WSES families through their cultures, travels, food and traditions. 

Come discover the rich diversity of our school at Heritage Night and the journey of learning each of our students have taken. ALL families are encouraged to participate!
