MESSAGE FROM THE PTSO PRESIDENTS

Career Connections - Can you help?
Are you a Back Stage Manager?  A Rocket Scientist?  An Artist?    Do you own your own business?  The PTSO is looking for help from our parent/guardian community to support the WHS Guidance Department in its continuing efforts to provide students with information about potential careers and jobs.  Specifically, we are reaching out to those in our community who have a unique, distinctive or one of a kind job.  Do you hold such a job?  Would you be willing to help our students by sharing with them information on your unique position?  We are still in the process of determining exactly how this information will be shared with students but if you are open to helping us, please let us know by sending an email to Connie Burton, WHS PTSO, Co-Vice President, at  whsptsovps@gmail.com.

Principal's Coffee, Friday 11/30 @ 9:00am, 
WHS Faculty Dining Room
Join Dr. Chisum on Friday the 30th for a community discussion.  We will view the Active Shooter video that was shown to students last month, discuss the NEASC accreditation currently underway at the high school, and watch the Friday Morning Announcements.   All are welcome!
