Our K-5 relaunch of the 1,2,3 Go Campaign has been so fun to observe.  It makes the start and end of recess safer for all students. It is so great to see staff greeting each other at the activities board!  #bettertogether #WCSExcellence

Over our February Break, BASE Explorers had the opportunity to learn about and recreate the works of such artists as Kandinsky, Picasso, and Pollock. In addition, students completed a variety of team challenges as well as winning against the staff in dodgeball during Staff VS Kids in the month of February to celebrate the core value of #WcsJoyfulLearning!
