Thank you for making WISH the best place to raise our children together! All day on Saturday, it was inspiring to witness the commitment and care the parents, community volunteers, and teachers put into the International fair. There were booths with crafts and games from around the world, plus our students' beautiful Winter Sing. A huge thank you to Eve Keller and the International Fair committee for leading such an amazing event.
Over 150 athletes have competed in WISH Team Sports since the Owls' inaugural season last spring and the program has only been growing since then. Three generous sponsors have signed on this year - Zacha Homes, Taylor Whitley Realty and Michael Goldstein, Attorney at Law. Combined with the award of a national DICK's Sporting Goods grant, our program was perfectly positioned to add three new sports- Cross Country, Flag Football, and Volleyball - and new head coaches for each.
