Dear Walla Walla Catholic School families,
We made it to the end of another exciting school year! We are so grateful to our WWCS students, families, faculty, and staff for working together to make this challenging year such a success! Being a part of this supportive school community is a special blessing.
As we enter the summer months, these Weekly News emails will be slowing down a bit. You can expect another edition of Weekly News to go out next week, and then we will be taking a small break until August. There will still be occasional communication updates throughout June and July though, so stay tuned!
Please Return School Laptops!
There are still several school Chromebooks (and even more chargers) that need to be returned for the summer. If your student or students have not yet completed that task, please make sure to turn those laptops and chargers into the school office as soon as possible. This will help us to have an accurate assessment of the number of devices available for student use next year. Thank you for your help with this!
