Upcoming Events

Summer Serve
Summer Serve provides an opportunity to volunteer in a variety of capacities to make an impact on the presentation of our school facilities and help with projects that allow for a smooth transition into the fall. Since most of the academic building will continue to be under construction throughout the summer, we will need some help in early August to get spaces cleaned and ready for the school year to begin! Summer Serve is happening August 5-7. You can sign up for just a day, or come for more. Sign up using this form to join us next week.

Summer WA Weekly Schedule
There will not be a WA Weekly published next week on June 21. There will be an edition published on June 28. During most of July, the WA Weekly will not be published. It will resume on Friday, July 26.

New Traffic Pattern Now in Effect
The traffic flow returned to two-way in and out of the Prince Crossing and Hawthorne entrances; however, there is no through traffic across campus for June and July. See the map below for more information. Thank you in advance for your patience as you navigate campus and experience the implications of construction.

August Schools
We wanted to notify you that we will be changing our Health Information System for the 2024-2025 school year to August Schools.  August Schools will be replacing Magnus.  We will give you much more information about creating an account and filling out necessary forms in our Back-to-School checklist which will be released in May for those enrolled in Summer Academy and in June for everyone else.  If you have any questions about the system change, please contact Jenn Sezonov – jsezonov@wheatonacademy.org.
