WA Communications And Social Media Update

We hope your school year has been off to a great start. With so many exciting things happening at WA, it can be challenging to keep up with everything. This email provides a list of the tools we use to communicate what’s happening in our school community.

Our Website
Our website is the central source for information about WA and serves as a springboard to other resources. Our website can be accessed at wa.edu. On our website, you will find an overview of the academics, arts, athletics, and student life at WA. You will also find links to:

ParentsWeb
ParentsWeb is part of the RenWeb School Management Software that WA uses to allow parents and students to view academic information such as grades, attendance, homework, and other resources. You may log in by clicking ParentsWeb, in the menu at the top-right of our website. RenWeb is also used for sending time-sensitive school information via email and in some cases via phone and text messages. Please be sure your phone and email information are up-to-date.

Please visit our website for more information on ParentsWeb including mobile access, apps for both iPhone and Android, and how to keep your information up-to-date. To create an account or reset your password, we must have your email address on file. If you need help, please email parentsweb@wa.edu.

School Calendar
WA uses the Tandem for Schools calendar to help keep you informed of school events. You may access it from the link on our homepage or by going directly towa.wacad.tandemcal.com. From there you may subscribe to the calendar and even get alerts if an event is cancelled.

eNews
The weekly eNews, sent via email on Thursdays, contains a summary of articles that have been posted on the news section of our website throughout the week. If you’re not receiving the eNews, please sign up here. Articles posted on our website are also posted to our Facebook page and Twitter profile.

Facebook
Our Facebook posts contain a summary of articles, linking back to our website. Please like and share posts as you partner with us to share and celebrate what God does at WA each and every day. Connect with us at:

Twitter
Articles on our website are also posted on Twitter. Please retweet those you would like to share. In addition to articles, we will also send out athletic event scores, shout-outs, photos, quick announcements and reminders. If you are only going to connect on one social media platform, you’ll get the most out of following us on Twitter:

We also encourage you to follow:

Instagram
We use Instagram to post photos, shout-outs, reminders, and share the memorable moments shared throughout the WA community. Follow us on Instagram:

For both Twitter and Instagram, please use @wacad for mentions and #walions to tag posts to share with others what God is doing within the WA community.

We look forward to what God has planned for this school year and are always looking for ways to enhance our partnership and communications with each member of our school community.
