Join Us For One Cup — November 2

OneCupLogoOur Parent Teacher Fellowship welcomes you to join Mr. Satterly for coffee and pastries on Thursday, November 2, at 8:00 a.m. in Gangway (entry from the SW corner of the church). This new quarterly event, designed for busy parents, is an opportunity to gather in an informal setting to discuss a parenting topic in about the time it takes to drink a cup of coffee, immediately following drop-off. Mr. Satterly’s first topic will be technology, as he shares reflections from The Tech-Wise Family, by Andy Crouch. We will end promptly at 8:30 a.m. to honor your time, but you are welcome to stay beyond that time to connect with Mr. Satterly and other parents.

Special thanks to our neighbor at west campus, The Atlantic Cypress Creek for sponsoring this event. For further information, contact Sarah Hajduk, Director of Development, at hajduks@wa.edu or 954.771.4615, ext. 2504.

college-savings3Save the date! Parents of students of all ages, join us for College Planning 101 on Monday, November 6, from 6:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. in the Kennedy Fellowship Hall. WA alumni, Philip Piedt ’07 of Benchmark Financial and John Novoa ’02 of Thrivent Financial, will be sharing strategies for saving and preparing for higher education. Early preparation is key, so we encourage parents of preschoolers through seniors to attend. As a college preparatory school, we are excited to offer this event presented by our alumni who want to give back to their alma mater which laid a foundation for the success they experience today.
