The cost is $25.00 per student. Tickets can be purchased in the atrium February 12-17. Tickets at the door will be $30.00. We hope to see all our students there!

Junior Project Lead
If your student is interested in serving on any of the Project Lead Teams during senior year, there will be an informational meeting on February 21 from 8:00-8:50 am in the FAC. If your student cannot attend that meeting, there will be a second meeting on February 22 in Mr. Bowling’s room during lunch. Any junior interested in being a part of Project Lead 2024-2025 will need to attend one of these meetings. Any further questions please contact Mr. Bowling. ebowling@wheatonacdemy.org
