Great things are happening at WCS!
This week our 8th-grade students had a chance to visit Morse High School to hear about programs and extracurricular activities during their step-up day. We are so proud of our students and we wish them every success with their freshman year!
We will be having our final meeting of the year on June 8th at 6 PM in the WCS Media Center, at the back of the Library.

LINES FROM THE LIBRARY
All library books will be due next Thursday, June 9th. Hopefully, you can use this weekend to find any missing or long overdue items! Bills will be sent home on Friday the 10th for any books that have not been returned. Library accounts must be settled before the end of the school year. Thank you!
As we enter the home stretch of this school year, I want to take this opportunity to remind you that student medications need to be picked up before summer vacation. I will attempt to send an email to as many as possible, but if you are in the school in the next 2 weeks, please ask if you may pick it up now. All remaining medicine will be discarded on the last day of school. I can only send epi-pens and inhalers home in a backpack. I know how expensive medicine can be so I am trying to get on this early.
LOST & FOUND
Has your student lost a lunchbox or a sweatshirt? We have a few things in our Lost & Found that have yet to be claimed. All unclaimed items will be donated at the end of the school year.
RUN CLUB FUN RUN 6/4
Saturday's Fun Run has arrived and the kids are excited to show their stuff. If your child is participating please have them here by 8:45 am for a group warm-up. The K-2 run (1 mile) will start at 9:00 and the 3-5 run (2 miles) will start right after. The whole event should take no longer than an hour from start to finish. Please continue to remind the kids that this isn't a race. There are no prizes or awards. The first goal is to complete the challenge, the second goal is to complete it without walking. It is about embracing a healthy lifestyle and understanding the importance of exercise. Thank you all! See you Saturday! - Mr. Hutchings
