Lower School

Everyone who attends WA or calls the school his or her alma mater is undoubtedly a Lion, but there is an elite group who can say they are Roaring Fans. Give a gift that keeps on giving this time of year, and you’ll receive one in return! When you commit to a $25 recurring gift, we will send you a Roaring Fans magnet for your car, so you can share your Lions’ pride. Our goal is to add 50 new Roaring Fans by December 31. Visit wa.edu/donate to help us reach our goal today!...

They shared it with their classmates and even had...
