V. Artstanding is Coming

  • On June 7th, from 5-8 pm at Lounsberry Hollow, we will have our 5th annual Artstanding event which showcases all the many wonderful district arts students. Some of the work of our very own WR students will be on display as well. Thank you to Ms. Demsak for preparing the work! Please come and join us for a fun night!


VI. Moving Up Ceremony Boosters

  • It was suggested that we offer opportunities for families to write “boosters” that would be included in the graduation program. I like the idea of using it as a WRAP fundraiser. So here is the idea. For $2 you can get 140 characters included in the program. Think of it as the opportunity to write a sentence of encouragement to your little one moving up. If you would like to write a booster, please type up your message, print it and return it with $2 by Wednesday, May 29th. If you would like to do multiple boosters, you can.
