good to know.
WE ARE SO GLAD YOU'RE HERE.
Our Families are our biggest asset. We work hard to build a society that is family-friendly and encouraging to you and your child. It is our privilege to partner with you in giving your student the tools to be a great thinker who loves God and is devoted to the truth of His Word.
WCS offers a Mentor Program to all new families. Each new parent/family is paired up with an experienced family, often someone they already know or maybe has a student in the same grade. These families will be placed together on the same booster committee assignment to provide tangible guidance and assistance during events, activities, or fundraisers. The mentor families also serve as a go-to resource for questions that arise during the school. The Boosters Board will establish mentor pairs at the beginning of each school year.
To help keep tuition at a minimum, all WCS families are asked to participate in a variety of school-wide fundraisers. These fundraisers provide an atmosphere of fellowship and friendship for our families. Main committees are broken down into "Boosters" or "School Board" committees.
Parents are welcome to attend Chapel each week and worship together with the WCS family.
Parent volunteers are always welcome to help with day-to-day school functions. If you are interested in volunteering, there are many areas in which your talents may be utilized, so please contact the school to let us know of your interest.
Children are restricted from coming to school if they have:
Temperature of 100 degrees F or greater. The child must stay home until the temperature has been normal for 24 hours.
Vomiting or diarrhea. The child must stay home for 24 hours after the last episode of vomiting and/or diarrhea has occurred.
Skin rash for more than 2 days, draining rash, or rash where the skin is broken. Medical treatment is recommended and the child may return to school with a physician's approval.
Diagnosis of a contagious or infectious disease, such as pinkeye, Chicken Pox, head lice, Impetigo, ringworm, Scarlet Fever, or Strep throat. Physician approval is necessary to return to school.
For school transportation to events and fields trips within the Worthington area, a single permission slip is signed during enrollment at the beginning of the year. This approval is kept on file for the duration of the year.
Transportation by bus outside of the immediate Worthington area for activities and events will require a separate permission slip completed by the parent/guardian prior to each event.
WCS busing is often provided to events such as sport games and field trips.
However, parent volunteers will be necessary for student transportation to events if there are smaller numbers of students or a licensed bus driver is unavailable.
It should be noted, no transportation is provided for certain events and must be arranged by the student's family:
Solo & Ensemble Competition in Edgerton, MN &
Two-Day Basketball Tourney
in Sioux Falls
The Gradelink site allows Students and Parents to view assignments, grades, attendance, homework, and more. Parents are encouraged to routinely log in to their parent account and be proactively involved in their student's academic progress.
Students use their accounts to view individual assignments, grades, and teacher comments. Each family will have one parent account. Additional parental accounts can be requested.
Quarterly report cards are available through Gradelink, and will also sent home once finalized.
