What is Parents' Guild?

Parents' Guild organizes a variety of fundraising and community events, provides opportunities for Christian fellowship, and coordinates a monthly speaker series of interest to WCS parents. Events such as the Back-to-School Picnic, WCS Gala, Father/Daughter Dance, and the Mother/Son Event are supported and organized by Parents' Guild volunteers. They also provided assistance to families in need through the Sunshine Committee. 

Parents' Guild monthly meetings occur on the first Friday of each month in the Student Activities Center after morning drop-off.  At meetings, you will learn about volunteer opportunities, social events, and others ways to lend support to the school. Join us!
