Teacher Appreciation Committee ~ Donations & Volunteers

WCA is blessed to have an amazing and dedicated faculty and one of the important functions of the parents' association is their work making our teachers feel appreciated.  

The teacher's appreciation committee is currently planning for the year and are in need of donations and volunteers.  They would like to ask families to prayerfully consider donating $15 towards the fund. This money goes directly towards the committees events which includes providing meals and food for the teachers consistently throughout the year.
