Annual Events

All-School Picnic

The all-school picnic is the first time in the school year that the entire WNS community gets together for an afternoon of fun! The picnic has several activities for the kids as well as a BBQ with food for everyone.  New and returning families as well as faculty and staff are in attendance for this start of the year celebration. 

Founders' Day Assembly

This special assembly brings the WNS community together to celebrate the school’s founding and remember our founders. Held annually on the date the school first opened for students, September 22, 1980, this important celebration is a chance for the WNS community to reflect on the history of the school.

Speaker Series

Every year WNS invites one to two speakers to the school to participate in our Speaker Series.  Ranging in topics both relevant and important, the whole community is invited to come and enjoy the insights of our wonderful speakers.  Past speakers have included: JoAnn Deak, Susan Linn, and Lou Cozolino.

Winter Program

The Winter Program is the students’ gift to the school community before Winter Break. The winter program is largely student-driven and includes performances from all grade levels. Students in the Winter Program elective, with help from teachers, decide on a theme for the program and select songs for each grade level to perform. Students also design the costumes, props, choreography, and presentation of the songs. The program is presented over two days to accommodate all of our families and their guests. 

Alumni Event

Every year on Alumni Day, WNS invites its alumni back to campus for an afternoon filled with fun, food, activities, and excitement. The day provides a special opportunity for alumni to reconnect with former classmates and teachers, share their accomplishments and achievements with each other, and us and reminisce about their time here at WNS. 

Gala

We host an annual Gala that is our largest community-building event and largest fundraising event of the year. We bring the community together for a fun and lively evening of dinner, dancing, an auction and much more!
