WST Weekly Update

Monday, November 16 - Friday, November 20, 2020

Hello, Families and Students!

NEW THIS WEEK: Students can earn entry tickets for a weekly drawing of gift cards if they earn 100% attendance or 100% assignment completion (or BOTH!).

WST is excited about the opportunity our students have to earn an entry into a gift card drawing weekly for 100% attendance and 100% weekly assignment completion.

Each week, on Mondays, instructors will send the names of all students that attended all sessions at WST and the names of all students that complete 100% weekly assignments. Student names are put into a randomizer on Monday and four winners are selected, two students are selected for 100% attendance and 100% weekly assignment completion.

Each winner receives a $5.00 gift card donated by the WST Foundation. Students may select from Amazon, Burger King, McDonalds, Starbucks, or Taco Bell gift cards.

This week there were 79 students that met 100% attendance and 41 that completed 100% of the assignments for the week. Please encourage your student to attend all sessions for WST that are on her/his scheduled and to turn in all of their assignments for the week.


100% Attendance: Myles M - Game Design | Karyss J - Esthetics

100% Assignment Completion: Lizette CP - Professional Medical Careers | Kenneth P - Fire Science

Winners, please contact Shani Watkins at to select your preferred gift card.
