K-12 Music Survey
You should have received an email yesterday with a link to a survey about our K-12 music program. If you have not yet completed the survey, it is linked below. We are looking for feedback from ALL parents, regardless of your child's grade level or involvement in ensembles. There is even an option to select that you have no opinion. If you do have an opinion, the final question requires you to select your top THREE options. If you do not select three options, know that the survey will not record your submission.

Whitnall High School
Snack Pantry
Next week, as a part of Whitnall Gives Back week, we are starting a snack pantry and need your help. Research shows that students who have increased access to nutritious food are more attentive and perform better in class. Many WHS staff members currently spend their own money to provide snacks to students who are hungry throughout the day. By establishing a snack pantry at school, we can take this responsibility off of staff and help students to return focus to academics. Snacks collected will be available to all students, regardless of financial situation. If we collect enough snacks throughout the week, there will be a staff/student dodgeball game next Friday! For more information on the drive, please see this link .
