Senior Class T-Shirt Design

PAW is so excited to have our rising seniors design their own class t-shirt! This is the first item we will promote on TeamApp and Instagram. Our goal is to have the t-shirts ready in time for the Rising Senior Luau. Designs are due Sunday, July 1. Voting ends Sunday, July 15. Any current junior interested in submitting a design is encouraged to do so. Email submissions to WCA2019Class@gmail.com

Please note: Voting will be on TeamApp.

T-Shirt Sponsors: We are looking for businesses within our class that would like to help sponsor the purchase of these t-shirts for the kids. Are YOU interested in being a sponsor? Your business will be featured on the back of the shirt in exchange for your support! Multiple sponsors possible.

 

11th Grade Summer Reading 2018

Honors American Literature

  1. Read one of the following nonfiction books:
    • The Color of Water: A Black Man’s Tribute to His White Mother by James McBride
    • Funny in Farsi: A Memoir of Growing Up Iranian in America by Firoozeh Dumas
    • Don’t Sing at the Table: Life Lessons from My Grandmothers by Adriana Trigiani
    • Scratch Beginnings: Me, $25, and the Search for the American Dream by Adam Shepard*
      *Warning about language: Shepard lives in a homeless shelter for much of the book, so he associates with men who use pretty salty language. Some will find this language offensive; if in question, please choose one of the other books.
    • The Glass Castle by Jeannette Walls*
      *Warning about language: Walls says that if she would have considered the number of adolescents who would want to read her book, she wouldn’t have quoted her father so liberally. Some will find her father’s language offensive; if in question, please choose one of the other books.
    • Elizabeth Street by Laurie Fabiano
  2. Read The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald.

Faith In Action – Class of 2019

List of Agencies | Parent Consent Form | Program Description

The Class of 2019 will be the 31st to participate in Westminster’s senior service program, Faith In Action (FIA). In this yearlong program, seniors serve with various agencies throughout the St. Louis metropolitan area. Over the years, Westminster seniors have learned valuable life lessons and enjoyed rich successes while serving their community, and we pray that the Class of 2019 will enjoy these same blessings. We desire that our seniors be helpful and responsible, not only as they go out into the community representing Westminster but also and more importantly in the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Please review a brief overview of our FIA program and return the Parent Consent Form to the Student Services Office between Thursday, April 6 and Monday, April 10.

Questions? Contact Director of Student Life Susie Brown.
