Phone-A-Thon Raises Money for Scholarships!

Beginning at 6:00 PM on Wednesday, November 7, 2018 WCA High School Seniors will be calling district residents to ask for pledges to support Dollars for Scholars. These pledges will be awarded as scholarships to the WCA Class of 2019 at Senior Awards Night in May.

In 2017-2018, the Phone-a-Thon in our school district raised over $10,000! Your pledge can help us meet our goal in 2018-2019; please consider a tax deductible donation. 


Thank you to the following establishments for supplying phones/facilities for the Phone-A-Thon: Eagle Bank, Wendell and Elbow Lake; Community Center and Runestone Telecom, Hoffman; Wendell Pioneer Insurance, Elbow Lake; and WCA Schools (Kensington, Barrett, Elbow Lake).

 


Concession Stand - Annual Fundraiser

Dollars for Scholars manages the concession stand at WCA throughout the fall & winter sports season.  The committee spends a huge amount of time gathering information (student activity sheets, sports schedules) that is used to assign a work schedule that does not interfere with events the student is involved in.  A Dollars for Scholars board member is assigned to each concession date.  Parent/s of the student are required to work at the concession stand as well.

Since we often end up with more events than students to work them, we depend on students to volunteer to work extra events.  They will be rewarded with extra scholarship funds!  The schedule is in the stand so you can stop in and check for openings during events for which the stand is open!!  You can also contact a board member and they will provide the info you need. Thanks so much for the hard work!  This is a wonderful opportunity for our board to interact with the WCA seniors.  We enjoy getting to know you!
