Out of Uniform – Thursday
Students who would like to donate canned foods to our food drive may come out of uniform this Thursday.

Little Mermaid Play
Please remember that our K3-3rd grades will be attending the play the Little Mermaid at the Springer Theater on Friday, December 9, 2016. Please arrive by 9:00. Also, remember that a parent or guardian of K3-K5 students will have to transport and attend the play with them, since we are not allowed to transport students of these ages. If students in these grade levels do not attend, then they will need to stay home that day since no classes will be offered while on the field trip. Please contact the office if you have any questions. The Spring Opera House address is 103 Tenth Street, Columbus, GA 31901

Ugly Christmas Sweater Contest
WHCA will have an Ugly Christmas Sweater Contest on Wednesday, December 14, 2016. Although students are not required to participate in the contest, we encourage students to participate and come donning their ugliest Christmas apparel.

Christmas Party
We will be having a school-wide Christmas party on Friday, December 16, 2016. We are asking for each family to bring snacks, drinks, and finger foods to share with our school family. The party will begin at 11:00 a.m. and school will dismiss at 12:00 noon.

Secret Santa
This year, the gift exchanges will take place in your child’s homeroom. Please understand that this gift exchange is totally optional and students do not have to participate. Each boy will buy a boy’s gift and each girl will buy a girl’s gift. The gift will need to be wrapped (not to exceed $10.00) and brought to the school by Wednesday, December 14, 2016. We will exchange them on Thursday, December 15, 2016. This year is a little different from what we have done in the past. So we wanted to make you aware of the changes. If you have any questions, please contact your child’s homeroom teacher.
