Dear Walla Walla Catholic School families,
April is coming to end already, and May quickly approaches! As the days are getting warmer, we are looking forward (rather ironically) to the start of our Winter sports next week! Also, we invite you to join us for a May Crowning ceremony on Wednesday, May 5! Read about these things and more in the Weekly News below!
We invite you to join us this Friday, May 1, at 8:30 a.m., for the tradition of May Crowning in the Assumption parking lot.
We ask that you remain in your vehicles and tune into 90.7 to pray with us to honor Our Patroness, Mary, Assumed into Heaven.

or view it on your mobile device to join us in prayer.

May Crowning Events on Wednesday!
We invite you to join us for our May Crowning on Wednesday, May 5, at the Assumption Church parking lot! If you would like to sign up to bring flowers, scan the QR code above, or
visit this sign up page
Procedure for Assumption students:
Teachers will bring their classes out to their usual dismissal lines. Parents will park in the lot (at the direction of Knights of Columbus volunteers) and walk over to pick up their children. If a student is leading prayers, he/she will stay with their teacher.
There will not be drive through student pick-up at this time because of the need for parking space for crowning.
- Students who have not been picked up will move to a seating area with their teachers and will stay with their teachers for the Crowning event.
- May Crowning done; remaining students dismissed to their families at the normal Wednesday dismissal time.
If parents do not attend Crowning, the parking lot will NOT be accessible for student pick-up before 1:45.
If there are any questions, please talk to your child's teachers.
May Crowning at DeSales
In addition to the event at Assumption, there will be a second May Crowning ceremony at DeSales for our students in grades 7-12, starting at 1:30 PM. Parents and families are also welcome to join us for that event!

April Board Meeting Summary
HOPE 2021: Thank you!
"HOPE 2021: Together We Have Hope" was a huge success this year! Players had a blast at the first ever "Golf Tournament of HOPE", the catalog for the online auction featured some absolutely incredible items, and the opportunity to gather together in person for the "Evening of HOPE" social was a special pleasure. We are all so blessed to be a part of this supportive Catholic schools community, united in our dedication to form disciples of Christ: strong in virtue, exceptional in learning, and generous in service!
All of these different HOPE events were only possible because of the generous support of the WWCS community. We had enthusiastic involvement from local businesses and organizations who sponsored the Golf Tournament, and the roster of players was completely full! Other local businesses and families donated items for the online auction catalog. Many people, including students, were willing to donate their time and effort to help plan and prepare for all of the events.
Finally, we are so grateful to Rosalie Lesko for overseeing and facilitating every detail of each HOPE event. We appreciate the effort that goes into a big project like this, and we are inspired by her continued dedication to the Walla Walla Catholic Schools. Thank you!
