Summer on Campus
Westminster school and administrative offices will transition to our summer schedule beginning next week - May 23rd. Offices will be open Monday through Thursday from 8 am until noon. All offices will be closed the week of July 4 - 8 and will re-open on Monday, July 11th.
Summer Reading, Math & Course Prep
We all need a little break from the routine, but summer work helps to keep students engaged and their skills sharp. With that in mind, the WCA website will be updated with information and requirements for summer reading, math and course prep work for grades 1 - 12 this Monday, May 23rd. Lists can be found under the parents tab of the WCA website or by following this link beginning Monday.
Find it under the "Parents" Tab
The "Parents" tab on the WCA website, WCALions.org, is the central place to find much of the information that you, as a WCA parent, need to know.
In addition to summer reading lists, you may also find summer course prep information for AP and dual enrollment classes, a copy of the WCA student handbook and uniform guidelines. And for those of you who like to plan ahead, the class supply lists for 2022-2023 are also posted. For the rest of us, there's a bit of summer first!
Do you use the RenWeb app on your phone?
Our updated FACTS Family app will be replacing the RenWeb Home app this summer. Beginning on June 1, 2022, your families currently using RenWeb Home can log into the app store and download the FACTS Family app to continue accessing their current content – and so much more. The RenWeb Home app will be officially discontinued on August 15, so families must download the FACTS Family app prior to this to prevent an interruption in content access.
Please note that families that have already paid the $4.99 app fee for RenWeb Home will not be charged for their FACTS Family app download until their RenWeb Home subscription period is over. This is through wherever you purchased the App (Apple, etc).
Summer @ the WCA Library
