Senior Parents/Guardians: The WA Ghostwriter
The end of your child's high school career is near! We know you have many different ways to commemorate the occasion, but we'd like to offer another possibility. The staff of the student newspaper, The WA Ghostwriter, invites you to purchase a graduation shout-out for your son or daughter.  We publish a printed June edition of the newspaper that is distributed at graduation. Since it features a list of the graduates' college destinations, it tends to be a hot commodity! We are selling four different shout-out spaces this year.
  • Deadline for submitting all materials and payment: April 13, 2018  The Ghostwriter staff will design your shout-out at no additional cost!
  • Photos that work well: senior portraits (that you have a release for), baby pictures, candids, close up and clear photos
  • Photos that do not work well: Iphone photos, blurry or unfocused photos
  • Message example: “We are so proud of you Sam! We know you will do well in college and succeed at UConn! We hope you always stay true to yourself and follow your dreams! Love, Mom and Dad”
If you would like to purchase a shout-out, please fill out the Google form here:
Feel free to email me with any questions!

Thank you for your support! We will also have a small quantity of LED light bulbs, desk lamps and smart power strips for sale. Also bring along your gently-used, wearable pairs of shoes this year to support Miller School's fundraising program called ShoeBox Recycling.  Donated shoes are shipped around the world for resale and reuse. Our schools earn $20 for each filled box of shoes! ShoeBox Recycling money goes directly toward funding our schools' many activities, including arts and education programs. We are also partnering with The Mary's Community Thrift Store to increase our schools' profits. Shoes must be in wearable condition, without holes in the soles, cannot be wet or mildewed, and must have shoelaces if they are necessary for the shoe to function.

Have a nice weekend.
