Pillar Six: Citizenship
Mrs. Coman (the one in the library) believes the WHS campus would be a much cleaner place if everyone threw their trash in the garbage, or did a good deed and picked up just one piece of trash a day. That’s citizenship in action!
Students and Staff: Today during 6th period, 10th grade students who have a signed pass will be excused from class to attend a presentation by a Holocaust survivor. Only 10th grade students with passes will be allowed to attend. They should go to the Margaret Parsons Room.
Students: The Youth City Council needs 8-16 students to work at the kids’ carnival during Youth Day on Saturday April 25th. If you are interested in volunteering, there is a sign-up sheet in front of the office or contact Brooke Little.
Students: Do you need extra credit in one of your classes? The likelihood is that you could benefit from a few extra points in a class. If so, tell your parents that they can help you by participating in a brief activity in the library at Open House on April 22nd. Your parent can earn a certificate that you present to a teacher of your choice for extra credit. NOTE: The certificate is good in one class only and only one certificate per student.
Students: The annual Youth Day Talent Show is Friday, April 24th. Cash prizes are awarded to first, second and third place, so start practicing and sign up with Mrs. Lavelle no later than this Friday. See her if you have questions! Not interested in being in the show? Make sure you come to the community center at 7pm on the 24th to show your support!
Cheerleaders: We will have a bake sale at Open House next Wednesday April 22nd. All cheerleaders, please donate a baked item. You can turn it into Jenny’s office, Room C5 on the 22nd, or you can bring it to the main hall just before Open House. Any questions please see Jenny since Coach Yalina is not on campus.
Students: Are you interested in trying out for Cheer? If so, stop by the main office to sign up on the list posted outside the door. Then listen to the bulletin for upcoming meetings, clinic and tryout dates.
Juniors: You will be testing on Wednesday, April 22 and Thursday April 23. Testing begins at 8:05AM sharp and will be held in Rooms F1, F2, E3, and E4. Rosters with your name and testing room are posted in front of the main office and available on school loop, so please be sure to check the main office for your testing room.
Reminder about testing norms: There are no electronic devices allowed and you must show up on time. Late students disrupt the testing process and will receive detention the first time. Chronic offenders will receive additional consequences. Lastly, you should go to bed early and eat a healthy breakfast during testing to ensure that you are performing at your highest capacity. Thanks for your cooperation and good luck!
Sophomores: Sign up with Mrs. Lavelle to help with our class booth at youth day. We are selling waters and sodas. The time you work will help give you a discount on your senior trip. Sign up in F1.
Students: Prom tickets are on sale. Prices are $110 for couples and $65 for singles.
Students: Alemaya Farms in Guinda is looking to hire local people for employment.
