Freshmen at WHS participate in CRUSADER WAY classes their first year as Crusaders, learning a myriad of social and community skills and how to utilize them.
You can read books about it, you can listen to lectures about it, you can even watch videos and other media materials BUT there is nothing like the real thing and it's the real thing WHS Juniors participated in Tuesday on a 16 hour road trip to Kansas City and back home. WHS instructors Mike Wilmoth and Rick Phelps oversee these annual excursions. Between the 5:15AM departure and 9:45pm arrival back home, here's what they did!
Industrial Arts is an educational program which features fabrication of objects in wood or metal using a variety of hand, power, or machine tools. A visit to Mr. Ryan Elder's classes on Wednesday at WHS found many interesting and practical projects in progress. No student encouragement is needed - when the bell rings the students get down to business. A couple of classes were building tool caddies, others worked on numerous woodwork items including tables, outdoor furniture and more.
WHS Youth Entrepreneurs had the opportunity to run their own pop up businesses during lunch on Wednesday. They worked in groups and planned and operated their own business..
Throughout the project, students performed market research to determine what they would sell, figured start-up and operating costs, and determined a break-even point.
Mrs. Lawless' Culinary Arts class at WHS were busy making treats for a Halloween party today.
As part of the project, they discussed cost, color, and proper table layout that allows guests to receive their food and drink in an organized manner.
Great times! Great looking treats!!
