At WHA, families get to know each other, the children, teachers and school staff through morning coffees, class meetings, workshops, classroom activities, committee meetings, social gatherings, and special school-wide events.

Families may support the Academy in many ways, such as joining the Parent-Teacher Association; volunteering in the classroom; serving on committees; donating classroom materials; planning and participating in special events; performing community outreach; serving as bilingual translators; contributing to WHA publications; seeking funds to enrich children’s school experiences; or assisting with long-range planning to support the Academy’s continued growth and success.

We welcome the participation of all parents in a variety of ways, both large and small. Every effort has a positive impact on our children and on the school as a whole.
