I’ll See You In…October…

Back to School Parade at West Oak Lane Charter School


Who: West Oak Lane Charter School (WOLCS) students in Kindergarten through 8th Grades, parents, and WOLCS teachers, administrators, and support staff

What: COVID-19 has impacted almost every facet of public education—to include how traditional events are scheduled, and when they can take place. But at West Oak Lane Charter School (WOLCS), there is always a solution, and sometimes that solution brings with it an element of fun. On Saturday, students, along with their parents, will travel to WOLCS to meet their teachers in person for the school’s annual back to school event!  Families are asked to show their school spirit by decorating their cars.  School officials will give students and teachers supplies during the event.  The WOLCS school spirit will be in the air with plenty of music, balloons, and decorations.

Where: West Oak Lane Charter School – 7115 Stenton Avenue, Philadelphia

When: Saturday, October 3, 2020 – 9 a.m. – 5 p.m.  (one grade per hour beginning with Kindergarten at 9 am, 1st Grade at 10 am, 2nd Grade at 11 am, etc.)  Optimum media time is 9 am to meet our new Kindergarten scholars, but media is welcome all day.

We could not have chosen a better day for the 2020-2021 WOLCS Back-to-School Event! The beautiful fall weather added to the excitement and spirit that hundreds of WOLCS families brought with them. The students had the opportunity to meet their teachers in person while picking up school supplies.
