Congratulations to our WAAS students for their outstanding art work and special recognition and honors in the NC Azalea Festival Children’s Art Contest! ?

In the Middle School Division, Brooke Sanderford placed Second out of 91 entries. She is invited to ride a float in the Azalea Festival Parade.   She will also be awarded a tropy from WAAS.  Congratulations Brooke! ?

In addition, seven out of the eighteen top entires from the middle schools were crafted by these WAAS students:  Sam Lee, Mary Wells, Elliot Wells, Yasmin Azizi, Keira Braithwaite, Emma Johnson and Yates Kirby.    They will receive a certificate from WAAS.Congratulations Middle School Students!  ?
