WCA Lower School Dads, start your Valentine’s Day 2018 off the right way by having a sweet treat with your sweet child(ren) in their classroom!

On Wednesday, February 14th, drop in between 7:45 and 8:15 and share this time of fellowship with your student(s) and their class.  If Dad is not available to come, feel free to invite a Grandfather, big brother or uncle.  Please fill out the form linked below and return to your child’s classroom so we can be prepared with enough donuts for all!  We will also happily provide allergy free donuts for those who need them. (Please complete form with this request indicated.)

We will hold our next admissions preview day on Monday, February 12th at 9 am.  If you know of anyone who is interested in learning more about Westminster, please help us spread the word about this event.  Families will have the opportunity to see our campus, talk with the faculty and staff, engage with current students and parents, and visit classrooms.

For more information, please contact Laura Briscoe, Director of Admissions, at admissions@wcalions.org or by phone at (706)769-9372.

Going once, twice, Thursday they’re gone!

Lost and Found Clean Out

lost and found

Yes.  You’re right, we did just have a lost and found clean out!  However,  apparently these cool mornings and warm afternoons cause our students to leave lots of lost items around our campus.  So, once again, lost and found will be displayed to the left of the stage in the upper school until after school Thursday, February 8th.  As always, at that point all unclaimed items will be donated.

Thanks again for your continued assistance!
