Every Veterans Day for the past 15+ years, a marvelous Veterans Day program has been presented at WHS, originally at the old high school on "A" Street and now of course the high school on E. 16th since it's doors opened 14 years ago. The event is always popularly attended and enjoyed by students and adults alike.
These are photos from the KRR LIFE Program (Literacy Integrated Family Engagement) Halloween Party on Sunday night, October 29th.
Red Ribbon Week continued Friday after kicking off Monday with a variety of daily themes on slate for the week across the USD 353 School District. It was "PJ Day" at some of the schools and "Sweats Day" at others on Monday. On Tuesday the theme was "Costume Day" in conjunction with Halloween and there were awesome ones! Wednesday was an easy one - "Hat Day".
This is RED RIBBON WEEK across USD 353 School District! Here is what it's about!
What a week across our fine community! The SPIRIT is definitely high as we reflect back on all the fun activities enjoyed by our students as they celebrate the upcoming coronation (tonight) of the new WHS DUCHESS!
Congratulations again to this year's candidates: Mekenna Adams, Abby Lowe, Jenna Rausch, Lexi Saffell and Jill Wiley!
LIFE Families Learned about MTSS at LIFE Literacy Night! The parents learned about the MTSS process and how to interpret their children's test scores as well as strategies to improve their learning. Each familiy received a reading kit and information to actively participate in Parent Teacher Conferences.
LIFE had a lot of family fun and bonding during Sessions 3 & 4 of the KRR LIFE Program.
We had guest readers: Mr. Buckendorff WHS Principal during session 3 and Wellington Police Officer Jessie Velasquez for session 4 read to the students.
They played games and received free books, games, and prizes in addition to a sit-down family meal.
Next week is the Literacy Night with special events throughout the evening.
