Host Families Needed
We currently have 16 international students journeying life with us here at WSCA. As a community, we would like to embrace these students with God’s love of hospitality. Being a host parent is both receiving a blessing, as well as giving a blessing. We have a current need for at least two homes to host. We have a 9th grader from Malaysia and a 7th grader from Japan who will start in January 2017. Both are boys. If you are interested in learning more about this unique ministry and the possibility of hosting these students, please contact Lilian Schultz for further details (firstname.lastname@example.org) or 717-737-3550 ext. 128). Host families will receive orientation as well as compensation for this ministry.

Art Class Fundraiser
by creating student made Christmas Cards through Mountain Color/My Cards.
Your child will shortly be learning about card design, production, and the
printing process in art class. They will learn about these concepts by
creating a Christmas greeting card with the option for families to purchase
them in time to send the card to your loved ones for Christmas.
Each card will be a full colored reproduction of the student’s design on
premium card stock with his or her name on the back!
Purchasing your child’s card is optional but the Art Department will receive
$3.00 for every box that is sold! If you decide to purchase a box, you will
receive 10 (4x5) greeting cards for $14.95. You will be getting more
information as well as an order envelope shortly!
Thank you so much for your consideration in supporting your child’s creative
Arts Education; as well as your unwavering support and your investment in
your student’s learning and future at WSCA!

The information includes:
- What are Scholarships?
- What Are the Different Kinds of Scholarships?
- How to Find Scholarships
- How to Apply for Scholarships - Essay Tips
- How to Apply for Scholarships - Letter of Recommendation Tips
- Avoiding Scholarship Scams
Each video is about 1.5 - 2 minutes long and includes an accompanying text section as well. This may make the scholarship search process easier for students, parents, and families. Additionally, below is a link to a private student loans guide. The videos are ad free and helpful to anyone planning on going to college. Obviously scholarships are better than student loans, but the information may be useful for the now 7 out of 10 graduates (and their families) leaving campus with student loan debt.
