For Upper School Parents and Students

Verse of the Week

“And forgive us our sins, as we have forgiven those who sin against us.”

Matthew 6:12

This Week

  • MONDAY – NO SCHOOL – Professional Development Day
  • THURSDAY
    • Spain Trip 2025 Info Meeting – WC is planning a trip to Spain for June 9-18, 2025! We will be seeing Madrid and all major parts of the south as well as Barcelona. If you are interested in going, please come to our parent info meeting.
    • 9-12 Music Trip to NYC
  • Summer Camps: Registration for WC summer camps is now open! Most camps are open to WC and non-WC students, so invite a friend!
  • Missing Headphones: We have headphones available for students to borrow in the Media Center, intervention room and study hall. However, we are missing A LOT. If you have a pair, please return it to the appropriate location ASAP. Thank you!
  • Bring Your Chromebook: Students are expected to bring their device and charger to school each day. They are also expected to take care of their WC devices/chargers. Devices that are broken or damaged may result in a charge to the student at the end of the school year! See the student handbook for all details regarding technology.
  • From the Health Office: Upper respiratory and GI viruses continue to harass our students and the community at large! Please remember our illness policy at WC: Any student who has been prescribed an antibiotic should wait 24 hours after the start of the antibiotic before returning to school unless released by a physician. Any student who has experienced a fever >100 degrees, vomiting, or diarrhea should wait 24 hours after such symptoms resolve (without the use of a fever-reducing medication) before returning to school.
    • If your student is feeling so unwell that they cannot make it through a full school day, please stay home and do not come with the intent to just stay for a period or two. We will help your student get caught up!
