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.
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!!
The Community Connections class at WHS, (instructed by Mrs. Karla Lawless), held a fundraiser recently and with the proceeds purchased PUMPKINS to carve and share with students at Kennedy Elementary just down ole Crusader Road.
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.
The "return to school" bells were ringing across our community today as USD 353 schools opened their doors to students for the 2017-2018 school year. Those "welcoming bells" will continue to ring daily through May 22, 2018! Lots of smiles on lots of faces as friends assemble (students and faculty) and prepare for the positive challenges and rewards that lie ahead this school year and beyond.
UPDATE: District-wide enrollment at WHS has concluded. Enrollment continues at the individual schools as Day 1 approaches! (Aug. 22nd!) :)
