• Introduction to the WES House System

    • WES uses a House System, based on the Ron Clark Academy House System.  

      At WES, we will have four houses: Altruismo, Amistad, Isibindi, and Reveur.  Every student and staff member at WES will be randomly assigned to one of the four (4) houses.  Each house has its own unique properties, such as color, symbols, history, and character traits.

      Altruismo-Black-Giver

      Amistad-Red- Friendship

      Isibindi- Green- Courage 

      Rêveur- Blue- Dreamer

      Throughout the year, students will earn points for school spirit, outstanding performance, academic excellence, good character, effort, etc.  House members will celebrate their community via House Lunches, House Celebrations, House T-Shirts, and House Award Days.

    Mission and Vision

    • Through the WES House System, we will instill a sense of belonging, pride, and personal growth in every student.  We will create a positive, inclusive school community and culture that fosters internal motivation by building relationships, character, excitement, and school spirit.

    Points System

    • Students will earn points for their houses for a variety of different things.  Each day, teachers will track student points through our district's PBIS Rewards System.

    House Celebrations

    • Students will have various opportunities to celebrate and connect with members of their house.

      House LunchStudents will eat lunch with their house family at their grade level.  The cafeteria will be decorated in the colors of the house with the most points.

      House Celebration Days: On these days, the entire school will wear the color of a house, to celebrate unity with each other. 

      House ShirtsStudents are encouraged to wear their house shirts on Fridays or wear Wylam Elementary School spirit wear.  

      House Award DaysEach month, students will participate in a reward during specials. The house with the most points will choose what reward all students will participate in.
