Happy Summer WSS Families!
We just want to take this opportunity to let you know how much we are looking forward to the new school year. WSS is known and loved for its sense of community, family and tradition. Although COVID has presented challenges and obstacles to everyone throughout all aspects of life, we are counting on the WSS community to come together for a great new school year and a sense of normalcy. We want to get back to all of the amazing WSS activities and events and we have great hopes that we will all be together for events both on and off school property.
The best thing about WSS, in addition to the children and the staff, is that WSS brings people together. Although we know opportunities to get involved in events and spend time together were in short supply this past year, we are hoping that the new school year brings back events, parent involvement and in-person activities!
In the next few weeks, we will be sending out information about parent committees and volunteer opportunities. Please consider volunteering. We welcome whatever time your schedule allows and we can always find a committee for you!
We are hoping to begin planning the WSS WIN as soon as school resumes in September and we will need volunteers for that committee. The WIN will be a great way to celebrate the school year and welcome incoming families.
We will send around a committee list with volunteer opportunities in the next few weeks. In the meantime, please enjoy the summer! Feel free to reach out to any of us with questions.
We look forward to seeing you all soon!
