The WHS Drama Dept. presents "FOOLS" by Neil Simon!

I was privileged Thursday evening to sit in on a full dress rehearsal for the WHS Drama Department's upcoming Neil Simon production - "FOOLS". The Fall 2017 offering under the direction of first year Drama Instructor Jessica Coldwell is just absolutely superb. The stage setup, the costumes, the make-up, the sound, the special effects, the lighting, the stage crew and of course the actors and actresses nail it!

"MUM'S" the word in WHS Horticulture Class!

Four of the boys from the Horticulture class planted mums in the raised bed that was built by the Advanced Ag Welding students last year.  On one side the bed says Horticulture and the other side reads WHS with two Crusader heads on it.  The fall mums will help to brighten up the building as you come in.  The other students in the horticulture class were busy pulling weeds and getting the greenhouse ready for the spring.
