Another successful All A's Walk is in the books! Our students crushed this year's goal, raising just under $80,000 (a new record!) for tuition assistance programs at West Catholic. As part of the celebration, students walked from the school to St. Ann's Home, praying for residents, holding up signs of encouragement and greeting those who came outside to say hello.

Thank you to everyone who helped make this event possible, especially our donors and sponsors! For a list of 2021 All A's Walk sponsors, please visit grwestcatholic.org/walk-sponsors-2021.

Students - as a reward for your hard work to help us reach our fundraising goal, you have earned a day off of school on Monday, October 25! Enjoy your four-day weekend later this month (there is no school on Friday, October 22 for Diocesan PD)!
