      Where’s CBW?

      I LOVE SEEING WHAT MIDDLE SCHOOLERS ARE PASSIONATE ABOUT OUTSIDE OF WCC but getting their event schedule is pretty challenging sometimes! I need your help, please let me know about your middle schooler’s events (THINK PLAYS, GAMES, MUSICAL PERFORMANCES, SHOWS, SCHOLAR COMPETITIONS, ETC!)

      Here’s how you can let me know about upcoming dates:

      • Put a note in the Where’s CBW Mailbox in the Middle School Corner at WCC  OR
      • Fill out this quick 5 questions request to let me know when and where to go.

      Thanks for letting me know!  I try my best to make it to their events when I know about them.
