Congratulations to Maddalena DiMucio and Ethan Seman! These two were nominated to represent WASD at the RYLA conference earlier this month. There were over a hundred students from various districts all over PA in attendance. It was a remarkable experience for both students. At the end of the week, the committee from RYLA gave out 4 awards. Ethan & Maddalena both received one of the awards. Tonight, the Rotary Club has invited both students to their monthly dinner at Ryders to discuss their experiences at the Leadership Conference (sponsored by the Rotary Club.)

Attention incoming seniors and senior parents! Now is a good time to think about having senior pictures taken. In order to use your picture in the yearbook, seniors must have a picture taken at Clark's Studio. The picture is free but you are welcome to purchase additional portraits. You are also welcome to have your pictures taken elsewhere, but you still have to have one taken by Clark's or we won't be able to use it in the yearbook. Students have from July 1 until October 31st to have their picture taken. Please contact them to make an appointment. You can also read more about Clark's below. There will be more yearbook information forthcoming at the start of the school year. Please email email@example.com with any senior picture or yearbook questions you might have!
The district's summer office hours are 6:30AM - 3:30PM Monday - Thursday. The offices are closed on Fridays from June 10th - August 27th.
