Mr. and Mrs. Jones decide to join the WCA Community Association...
...and consider lending their personal talents to WCA's other booster organizations
The WCA Community Association unites with Teachers to Support and Enrich the WCA Experience for students
The Athletics Booster Club helps raise funds and support our athletics programs
Our Fine Arts Coalition works with the Arts departments to raise the level of the arts at WCA
No matter which group you decide to join, there a few things for certain: you are helping WCA grow stronger, which gives your student a better experience, you are glorifying God through service, and you will be having fun and meeting new people!
