April 25, 2018 Announcements
If you are planning on performing in this year's WHS Talent Show, please sign up by the end of this week. The sign-up sheet is posted outside of the auditorium.
AP Students! A mandatory AP exam pre-registration session will be held on Friday during ACE in room 114. Bring a pencil, pen, and hard surface to write on. Contact Ms. Smith with any questions.
Beginning Wednesday, April 25, EVERY WEDNESDAY will end at 2:30. This was a School Committee solution to make up the 8 snow days. SO our Wednesday schedule will mirror the other days of the week, Period 1, Period 2, ACE time, Period 3 and Period 4. This creates the least impact for our students who attend classes at WRVC. After school activities will begin after 2:30; please note that teachers are in required professional development every Wednesday 2:30-3:30.
Junior Prom Tickets are being sold for the rest of this week and next week during ALL lunches. They are $32 and the Theme is Enchanted Woods. Also, when you buy your ticket, place your vote for prom King and Queen!
SENIORS: CHECK YOUR EMAIL! Seniors will be receiving detailed emails about any outstanding library materials that must be returned before marching practice begins.
