Reading Romeo and Juliet in 9th grade English is quickly becoming a student favorite. Students take on roles from the play and pour themselves into the acting. It is truly a representation of #WCSJoyfulLearning!

Our youngest Explorers in Mrs. Rice’s class had an Ooey Gooey Science Day this week.  They participated in multiple science experiments.  The joyful learning and inquisitive behavior was felt in the air. It was awesome to see our scientists Exploring.  Thank you to our Explorer families that volunteered in the classroom to make this day a success! #WCSInquiry

Dismissal Pedestrian Safety: The safety of our students and community is our top priority. We have identified a safety concern for our pedestrians during dismissal. Students and families are cutting across traffic as they arrive and leave campus, therefore we are returning to our pre-pandemic walking procedures: 

  • Beginning Monday, November 14th, only car line students will exit the front gates. 
  • All walking students and families will enter and exit through the Maybrook or the bike path gates, where crosswalks are more accessible. Walking/biking families will not enter through the front gates – please enter campus to pick up your student using the Maybrook or bike path gate.
  • Students who bike or ride their scooter or skateboard will pick up their bike from the locked area, then exit the back of campus.
  • CLICK HERE to see a map of available crosswalks that should be used by all of our pedestrians. 
  • One more thing – please don’t drop off or pick up your student in the middle of the street. THANK YOU for your partnership in keeping our community safe.
