Highlighted in this issue is the 2nd Annual Senior Prom on page 32. Last year, this event welcomed over 100 seniors from the community for a fun-filled afternoon with lunch, sweets, dancing, a live band and MORE! Many attendees had previously never attended an event like this before, so our Senior Prom was the perfect way to warm their hearts and to connect them with others in the community.
Reignite old rivalries and meet up with old friends at the 48th Annual Alumni Basketball Tournament. Mark your calendars for December 21 and 22 at Lane Intermediate.

We hope you are as excited as we are to get together, reminisce and play some fun, competitive basketball.
New course offerings this session include Yoga for Mental Health for participants 13 years of age and older. These courses are designed to help you use yoga as a tool to live your best life along with bringing you a brighter state of physical health and mental well-being. Some topics discussed are Depression Relief, Stress Release and Management and ADD, ADHD & AUDHD Management.
Each guide includes a portion in the back to Champion for a Child, where you can donate to the WAWM RCS Scholarship Fund. Recent research has shown that children from lower income families are less likely to participate in sports. Over 60% of the students in our district qualify for free or reduced meals which leave little to no discretionary money to enroll in youth programs or safe alternatives for after school activities. The Champion for a Child Scholarship Fund provides an opportunity to the children in our community and your donation will ensure that our students can reap all the benefits that youth sports and safe outlets have to offer. Any donation is welcome and gratefully appreciated.
Inside the guide are ways to get involved either by becoming a part-time team member, a volunteer coach or even a referee. Training is involved with each offering and is a great way to learn and impact our programs. These are just a small portion of what’s inside of the 2023 Winter/Spring Activity Guide which will launch on Monday, November 14. For more information, to register online or to update your contact information prior to the launch, please visit wawmrec.com.
