At each milestone student's receive certificates which are sent home to acknowledge their achievements.




Achievement rewards trip: 

Each year it is our intention to provide achievement rewards trips which students can choose to participate in. WOW points are used to offset the monetary contribution a student must make to participate in the trip.  The cost for the individual student depends on the WOW points acquired throughout the year and the criteria below.  We include all students but reward those who go the extra mile.
