District News
Online Safety
Although more recent reports of the momo challenge suggest that it is a hoax, it is always a good time to review your child's access to electronic devices and online activity. 

While there is a great deal of learning that can occur online, we also need to ensure that children understand how to use the internet safely. For more information, please use the links below:

Booster Club Updates
Join us for  Casino Night on April 27! Time is running out on early registration . Secure your early pricing by registering prior to the event. You can email registration to WhitnallBoosterClub@gmail.com or send to the high school. 

We need more high school parents to get involved. WFBC doesn't run itself. We are a 100% parent run volunteer organization. We need help from you all to continue to provide the funding and support that we have been able to for many years.  Did you know that, just this week, WFBC was able to approve 3 funding requests totaling $7886? These are improvements and opportunities that wouldn't be afforded otherwise due to budgets. It's so important to continue to help make these things happen so the students are provided a positive high school experience.

WFBC has several open board positions including President, Secretary, and Member-at-Large for the 2019/2020 school year. We are in desperate need of a Concessions Coordinator. Please consider attending our next board meeting or email Nicole Bartkowiak with questions at WhitnallBoosterclub@gmail.com We can't do this without you. I hope to see you at our next meeting: April 2 at 7 PM!
