Due to unforeseen circumstances, we regretfully need to postpone our Grandparents Day that was scheduled for October 8th! However, Friday October 8th is still early dismissal at 11:30 AM for WCA and LFN. This also means there is no after care or lunch provided for this day.

4. Sports Announcement:

Websterville Christian Academy is seeking a dedicated individual who is passionate about putting the time and effort into building our Sports program for all students to participate in. Unfortunately at this time, Websterville is not able to provide any sports. Therefore, we will plan to set up “Member to Member Agreements” with other area schools so that your students will have the opportunity to still participate. Though we appreciate your suggestions, the decision as to which schools we will collaborate with, will be made by the WCA Administration.

For those of you who have students in grades (9th-12th), who would like your student to participate in a winter sport during the (2021-2022) school year… please email the school NO LATER THAN – October 8th at (wcaoffice@wcavt.org) letting us know the following:

The winter season will be a pilot project and we will readdress for the spring season!
