School starts off a little differently. We regard school as a family. The intention is to bring together the student body as a close knit group of caring citizens.
The cardboard boat race is the culmination of many challenges that help create the inclusion of each student into the WMA family. This is important for the returning students, but especially for the new student.
The 1st week of school is facilitated by the electus (student leaders). These elected and appointed students attend a week-long backpacking leadership retreat in preparation for the upcoming school year.
