Visual Arts Bring Home Honors

The rescheduled 2019-2020 GAPPS (Georgia Association of Private and Parochial Schools) visual arts competition was held in McDonough on September 16th and our WCA artists had a terrific showing!

Students placed in all categories entered and our middle school won the region Championship, while our high school artists won region runner-up! Our 13 high school pieces will continue on to the state competition on October 1st in Macon. Congratulations to all our amazing artists!

October Lunch Orders ~ Deadline TONIGHT

Don't forget to log on and place your October lunch orders on Boonli.com before midnight tonight.  Next month you'll be thankful you did!

If you have an existing Boonli.com account, your log-in will remain the same.  Please note, existing account holders have to update profiles for each student before you can see the menus.

If you are new to the WCA community, or if this is your first time placing an order, please follow these steps:

  • Click the link to "Log In" at the top of the page
  • Enter the password for our school - WCA319
  • Follow prompts to complete your registration including profiles for each of your students. 
  • Order lunches for each student. (lunches are ordered by the month in advance)
  • Be sure to go to checkout and pay after you've made your selections.  Your order is not placed until it's paid for!

If you have any questions about this process, please contact Tami Butts -  tbutts@wcalions.org.

Caps for Cure Fundraiser ~ Let's Finish Strong!

It's been great to see all the different caps and hats students and faculty have elected to wear this week in support of our Caps for Cure event.  Friday closes out this year's fundraiser and for all of you who have made donations, thank you!  If you haven't yet made a donation, there is still time to do so and help us reach our goal.

Caps for CURE is a school-wide event benefiting CURE Childhood Cancer, a non-profit organization dedicated to conquering childhood cancer through targeted research while supporting patients and their families.  How can you participate?

  • All WCA students may pay $5 for the week and wear a hat each day.  
  • Wearing a cap not your thing?  Then please consider making a donation.  All donations of any size are appreciated whether you choose to wear a cap or not. 

It's so sad . . .

Next week the upper school was originally scheduled to be at the annual Impact Retreat but sadly, it had to be postponed.  So, to raise spirits and celebrate 7 successful weeks in school (Yay!!!), we are having an S.A.D. (Student Appreciation Day) on Friday, October 2nd!  Here's what's happening:

Admissions Preview Day

Westminster is holding our next admissions preview event on Tuesday, October 20th beginning at 9 am in the administrative building.  

If you know of families who are interested in learning more about who we are, please help us spread the word!  This is a great opportunity to learn about the unique mission of Westminster, meet our amazing faculty and staff and tour our campus.

For this event, please know that RSVP is required and the form may be found on the website or by following the link below.

Fall Break Is Headed Our Way

If it's not on your calendar yet, please make sure you note that WCA will be closed October 8 - 9 and 12 - 13 for our Fall Break.  Whether you're planning a "stay-cation" or taking a trip, we hope this is a great time to relax and enjoy time with your family!
