Who to contact

Many of these activities are included as part of our curriculum, so a child’s classroom teacher or the school office will be the best source of information. Communication about the life of the school is sent home with the weekly “Monday Mailer” newsletter.

What to do next if you want to join a club

Just ask! Your child’s classroom teacher or the school office will be able to point you in the right direction. If there is a club you’re interested in starting, WCA has room for that, too!
