Off-Campus Learning Day
Monday, September 11

Once again this year, we are excited to provide our students with the opportunity to participate in Off-Campus Learning Days. These days afford our students time for uninterrupted learning on days they typically would have off for in-service/teacher conferences. Additionally, our Off-Campus Learning Days will prepare our students to seamlessly continue in their classes during snow/inclement weather days.

Our first Off-Campus Learning Day this year will take place on Monday, September 11. Students should plan to allocate the same amount of time for schoolwork as they would for a traditional on-campus day (approximately 7 hours). Teachers will make expectations clear to our students, and they will be able to access all work via OnCampus.

Trap Team
Parents, did you know that Wheaton Academy has a competitive precision team shooting club that meets on Tuesday evenings and Saturday middays in both the fall and spring seasons at the St. Charles Sportsmen’s Club in Elburn?

Trap Shooting is a team sport with a strong individual and team component designed to emphasize safety and improve accuracy when using firearms. 

At least one parent must have an active FOID card for anyone interested in shooting this season. A shooting membership and safety course is offered by St. Charles Sportsmen’s Club Saturday, September 16 at 9:45 a.m. and is required to participate. Existing shooters’ first practice is Tuesday, September 12 at 5:45 p.m. and new members begin Saturday, September 16 at 11:45 a.m. Hope to see you there!
