Change in Busing To Begin Monday

We are writing with a transportation update for Willink and Thomas students based on invaluable feedback both of us have received from many of you.

Beginning Monday, Thomas students will be bus shuttled to Willink after dismissal. With this change, most Willink students will be able to board their buses immediately after dismissal, rather than waiting outside for an extended period of time for buses to arrive (particularly as the fall/winter seasons approach).

Once the high school shuttles arrive, Thomas students will disembark, board their regular buses, and all middle/high school students will then be transported home.

The safety and well-being of our students remains at the forefront of all decisions we make on behalf of your children. We are hoping this change will get all students home in a more timely manner.

Thomas v. Schroeder Football Game on September 30th

I'm very excited to announce this year we will have Match Play Ink on-site selling merchandise for our Thomas/ Schroeder Football game at Thomas on September 30th. This year, "it is more than just a game" as we are raising money for the Wimot Cancer Center in support of those in our community and schools who have been impacted by cancer. All vendors at the game on the 30th are contributing a portion of the proceeds to support this cause.

In addition to being able to buy that day, people can order garments on their pre-order webstore below.

There are a couple ways to get apparel; choose the option that works best for you!

- The on-line webstore for apparel will be open until about a week before the event and is the best way to insure you get the color and size you want. Also the prices are $2 less on the webstore then they will be onsite at the game. Webstore orders can be picked up on-site at the event OR shipped directly to your home.

- Match Play Ink will be on-site at the tournament and will be printing on-site! If you prefer to try on your options, this is the way to go.

Can’t wait to see Webster come together at the game on September 30th! Thanks for your support of our student athletes and the Wilmot Cancer Center.
