This Week at WCA - November 18th
WCA Team Finishes as State Champions in Math
Congratulations to the new State Champions in Math! Team Members Aron Bauer, Widener Norris, Carlos Madrid and Samuel Snyder competed in the state high school math bowl and finished as champions. Each team member also competed individually and Aron Bauer placed 2nd, and Widener Norris 3rd, in the state competition overall.
The History Bowl Team finished the day as state runners-up. Team members Walker Allen, James Dickerson, John Donatelli, and John Nesbit competed in several close matches but lost in the semi-final round. Noteworthy is the fact that our team beat the state champions earlier in the day. Congratulations to both teams for their outstanding results!
Westminster will be closed next week, November 23rd - 27th for the Thanksgiving holiday. The school will resume normal operations on Monday, November 30th.
May this week be a time of gratitude as you celebrate!

It's shoebox time! Donations Due This Week
If getting your Operation Christmas Child shoebox ready is still on your "to-do" list, it's not too late! You have until this Friday, November 20th, to turn in your shoebox.
Since we will not be able to hold our traditional packing day this year, there are two options available for our families to still be able to participate in this wonderful ministry.
Option 1 - Pack a shoebox (any kind will work) at home & bring to WCA the week of November 16th.
Option 2 - Pack a box online for a $25 donation, follow this link — Pack Your Box Online.
Please follow this link - Operation Christmas Child 2020 Flyer - for additional details. Now, more than ever, children around the world need hope!
Pre-Break Lost & Found
With the approach of Thanksgiving Break, we are cleaning out the Lost and Found bin in the gym. Items from the bin are currently displayed on tables in the gym. Please feel free to stop by at your convenience to see if any of the items belong to your family. After lunch on Thursday, November 19, unclaimed items will be cleared away. (We need to get the gym ready for the home middle school basketball games that day.)
An Early Look at 1st Semester Final Exams
The first semester final exams for upper school students (grades 6–12) are scheduled for December 16th — 18th.
For planning purposes, please know that upper school students will be dismissed early all three days. The purpose of early dismissal is to provide an opportunity for students to meet with teachers should they have questions or would like additional help prior to the exam.
Follow this link for the first semester final exam schedule.
If your child receives Learning Support, please see the email that Keyla Carson sent to you earlier today explaining the exam options available for those students.
