General News

Book Rentals for 2020-2021 – Textbook Acquisition Form in Magnus
For the 2020-2021 school year, each family will be required to indicate whether they wish to OPT-IN to ALL ACCESS and have Wheaton Academy place the book rental orders for them or OPT-OUT and purchase/rent all books on their own. This Textbook Acquisition Form is located with all the other Back-to-School forms in Magnus. The textbook form needs to be completed by August 1, 2020. If the form is not completed, your family will automatically be placed in the OPT-IN category, and your Smart Tuition account will be billed in September.  You must complete the form for each student who is enrolled. Please contact Jenn Trott with any questions.

Wheaton Academy Video Students Win Statewide Contest
Our video production students participated in the American Lung Association’s Radon video public service announcement contest. 135 videos were submitted from 27 Illinois schools. Out of those, Wheaton Academy received news that we had three videos in the Top 10. These student producers will receive a minimum of $250 and could potentially receive up to $1300 in prize money. Of this year’s four winners, all of them are freshmen or sophomores! It would be a huge honor to have just one video recognized in the top 10, but to have four is quite outstanding. We are very proud of these students.

As a part of this contest, there is a “Most Views” award of $300 for the student who can get people to view their YouTube video the most. Not only would we love to have you watch each of these videos, but please share these videos with your friends and families. The overall goal of this contest is to bring more awareness to people on the dangers of radon in their homes. For more information, please visit lung.org/radon.

Here are the links to our three video winners:

Final Transcripts
Final transcripts are being be sent out this week to all of our graduates’ college destinations. Transcripts will be held for families that have financial obligations/responsibilities with Wheaton Academy until these obligations are met.


Locker Room Clean-Out
The boys and girls locker rooms (both P.E. and Athletic) must be cleaned out by Tuesday, June 30.  At that time,  we will discard any remaining items remaining in all the locker rooms, and donate or throw away.If you must get into the locker room in the next three weeks,  please contact Dawn Hamm at dhamm@wheatonacademy.org  to set up a day and time to come to the Field House and get any items you may have in the locker rooms.   The Field House will be closed unless you make an appointment with Dawn Hamm.
