The HS mission trip to Costa Rica was an amazing experience for students. WCS students served at a local school, assisting with the English class and provided school supplies that they had shopped for while in Costa Rica. They also visited a local church and held a time of devotion. In addition to serving in the local community, they immersed themselves in the culture and learned about Costa Rica's rich environment.
The WCS High School Symphonic Band had the honor and privilege to perform at Pearl Harbor in Honolulu, HI on Fri., Feb. 15.

In addition to their Pearl Harbor performance, Mr. Carlson and the HS Symphonic Band also performed on the Center Stage at the Ala Moana Mall, toured the island of Oahu and visited many beautiful locations including Diamond Head, Hanuama Bay, and the North Shore. The students enjoyed many activities including surfing, snorkeling, zip-lining, sailing, biking, and parasailing.

myWCS allows for parents and teachers to easily communicate with one another within this private community. Parents are members of an all parent group, and may be members of smaller groups that pertain to their child's grade and/or extracurriculuar activities. Please be aware that when using the internal messaging system in myWCS, by default, all replies are sent to the entire group. If you want to send an individual reply to the sender of the message, please compose a new message to that specific person. This helps avoid large groups, or in some cases the entire school community, from receiving unintended messages. Thank you for your help.
