Now is a good time for seniors to consider signing up for the SAT. And if you've already taken it, retaking the SAT in August or in the fall of your senior year is likely to boost your scores (and open more college admissions opportunities). Testing in August will ensure that you have your scores back in time to meet deadlines for early admission.

Registration for the SAT is open to all students for the 2021-22 school year on the College Board website.

As many of you know, Bill Roth, who served as president of the WC board, suffered a brain aneurysm this past spring and has been in the hospital ever since. We are happy to share that he is returning home. As Bill continues to recover, his family is looking for individuals with a medical background who have expertise with tracs or feeding tubes to answer some questions they have or possibly stop by. If you or someone you know would be willing to assist, please contact Cynthia Kneibel or call the school office at 616-233-5900.
