Parent Teacher Fellowship invests countless hours throughout the school year. Therefore, we would like to recognize Marty and Melissa Scasserra for their faithful service as PTF Presidents.

Every year, WA has a promotion ceremony for fifth grade and eighth grade and then concludes the school year with Baccalaureate and Commencement.
