Our director of Camp Waskowitz and WELS, Dr. Roberta McFarland, has announced she will retire at the end of this school year. Dr. McFarland’s leadership of Camp Waskowitz for nearly 25 years has built upon and strengthened the long legacy of Camp Waskowitz in our community and beyond. She developed and has been a tireless advocate for our WELS program. We are grateful for her leadership.
We will begin a process for hiring a new director for Camp Waskowitz.
WELS will be moved to Tyee High School and will be supervised by Tyee administrators starting in the 2022-23 school year. This will give WELS students access to high-quality general education courses in addition to the distinctive characteristics of the WELS program and will increase CTE opportunities for Tyee students.
