It's hard to believe but school has started again, and the unusually talented and accomplished members of WCS Class of 2010 have taken their place as this year's seniors. These are students whose leadership skills are already tested and proven, and whose imaginations have already sought out uncharted waters. We wish them the best of luck throughout their final year as WCS students, with the same hope for everyone at our outstanding school, teachers and students alike.

ACAP is happy to announce that the After School Program will continue for K-6 students at WCS, with a new low fee scale owing to an improved funding situation. The fee scale is $75 a month for one child, $37.50 for a second child, and $18.75 for a third child. This new fee scale reflects the hope that the program will be more affordable for big families than before.

Even so, assistance is still available for families that could use the program but would have trouble paying the full fee. ACAP wants the program to be available and accessible to all who need it. For information and applications, call ACAP at 873-3207. Applications are also available at the school.

The program starts September 9, and will run each school day from dismissal to 6 p.m.. Hopefully, you'll find me there, helping with homework or playing tag in the playground.

Meantime, come see our last Shakespeare-in-the-Park production, Henry V, presented by American Studio Theater in Ballard Park on Sunday, September 6, at 3 p.m.. It's the rousing tale of a young prince, the roguish Hal of earlier plays, who comes of age in leading the English to war against the French. This production is directed by Rebecca Lincoln, who you may remember as Kate in last year's Taming of the Shrew, and stars Daniel Billet as Henry V. It's free to the public.
