Act Now: Limited Tickets for CELEBRATE!

Dear Families,

Tickets for CELEBRATE  are in high demand! While I feel like a carnival barker, we are fully expecting to sell out within the week. How fitting that our “Standing in the Hall of Fame” event will be standing room only.

If you are unable to attend in person, please sell vacation raffle tickets featuring exciting destinations like Disney and more. Physical raffle tickets will be available soon, but you can get a head start by obtaining digital copies right here. 

If you or a business would like to sponsor the event, there are still opportunities. Sponsorships are still available for $1,000. A $500 gift is also available to underwrite tickets for faculty and staff. As always, if you have questions, please contact Amelia Parsons at mparsons@wcdsedu.com.

  • Began a unit on POETRY!!– reading, writing, listening, and speaking 
  • Writing our “What I want to be when I grow up” essay for contest

Teams are progressing through the challenges and things are beginning to heat up.
