1. CHRISTMAS SPIRIT WEEK (December 14th-18th):
For more information, please see the email or the flyer that went home last week. We hope everyone will get excited about it and participate!
2. Christmas Celebrations in the classrooms
We wanted to communicate with you regarding Christmas celebrations here at the school this coming week. Throughout the pandemic this school year, even in the face of the recent rise in COVID cases in VT, it has been the goal of WCA to remain open for in-person education. With this goal in mind, we are taking added precautions around the holiday season. Unfortunately, at this time we will be celebrating a little differently this Christmas season. Please know that we wish to make it a special time for your children – the week of December 14th during our yearly Christmas spirit week. Each class will be participating in some sort of Christmas celebration (to the teacher’s discretion) all while keeping COVID protocols. If you have any questions, feel free to contact the office at #802-479-0141.
3. Staff Christmas Bonuses
Websterville Baptist Ministries has been bless with so many wonderful hardworking Staff members. This year we are looking for contributions to give out as a “Christmas Bonus” to each staff member. If you would like to donate towards blessing our staff members with a monetary gift, you can do so through our PayPal account or you can use the newly designed WCA envelopes that are located at both campuses. Please make sure to mark it as “Staff Bonus”.
*Any contributions would need to be received NO LATER than Wednesday, December 16th!
4. WCA/LFN Envelopes
WCA/LFN has newly designed envelopes for when you need to make a payment (i.e. tuition, hot lunch, extended care, warrior bakery, etc.) or wish to make a donation. They are located behind the “main office door” at the main campus and in the “entryway” at the East Campus as well.
5. WCA Christmas Concert CANCELLED
We apologize for the late notice, and we are sad to have to report that there won’t be a Christmas concert this year.
6. Collecting gifts for some in need
We will be collecting some gifts for some children within the WCA/LFN family this year! If you would like to contribute, you will find some gift requests on the Christmas tree in the upstairs hallway. We are requesting that you bring the new, UNWRAPPED gift, tied in a bag so that it cannot be seen, by Friday, December 18th. You may give the bag to your child’s teacher, to Dianna, or set it next to the tree. We will distribute the gifts to the child’s family in time for them to wrap their gifts!
7. Warrior Bakery Christmas ordering
Our Warrior Bakery has “special Christmas ordering” now available! The Christmas order form is available in the office at both campuses (and the school website). There are an assortment of options for purchase. All Christmas orders need to be in NO LATER than Friday morning, December 18th. Pick up dates for these orders will be on Tuesday, December 22nd or Wednesday, December 23rd. Please contact Nel Lunde via email – to make arrangements at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
8. Christmas break schedule
Christmas Break is fast approaching. Our schedule for school closure is as follows:
WCA will have a ½ day on December 18th and will be closed December 21st – January 3rd.
LFN will have a ½ day on December 23rd and will be closed December 24th – January 3rd.

9. Virtual Class Questionnaire
An email was sent out with a questionnaire having to do with virtual learning and what your needs might be if we should have to use it again in the future. Please take a moment and fill this out for us! If you did not receive it, here is a direct link.
WCA has had a lot of positive feedback on selling school apparel. We now have a link on our website at: (MERCH STORE LINK) to be able to order various merchandise, which includes children’s sizes.
11. Yearbooks Still for Sale
There are still plenty of 2019-2020 Yearbooks for sale. The cost has dropped to $15 per yearbook, and they are available at both campuses.
12. Visitor Protocols due to COVID 19
To all WCA & LFN parents, grandparents, visitors, etc.: With the increase in COVID cases, we are trying to decrease the number of people coming into the building and going to classrooms. So we are asking that ALL drop offs need to be done at the door. In addition, we ask that when picking up a student throughout the day, that you check into the office and a WCA staff member will check your temperature and retrieve your student for you.
13. East Campus Transportation Reminder
As a reminder to parents of students who attend school at the East Campus. Please communicate clearly if pickup or transportation plans change. The contact person for these changes is our Director of Student Life, Brian South and he can be reached via email at: email@example.com. Changes in transportation plans include:
- Early pickup
- A change in driver picking up
- If you’re running late
- If plans for transport over to the main campus for extended care happen to change.
