Hello Cougar Families!
Next week is WFHS Anti-bully Week. Bullying is never tolerated at our school and next week, first period teachers will present lessons about bullying. Students are encouraged to wear orange on Wednesday, which will represent unity.
The remote learning (asynchronous) learning day is intended to support both teachers and students in having sufficient time to fully engage and succeed in their work.
Asynchronous days will continue at WFHS on October 21st and 28th. After these dates, WFHS will be expected to align its structure for asynchronous days to the district structure. Asynchronous learning days are scheduled on the following dates: November 18, December 2, December 16, and January 6. There will be no asynchronous day on January 13 at WFHS as this is exam week.
The yearbook staff is excited to share news with you regarding our 2021 yearbook. Yes, we are having a yearbook, and we need your help to make it happen. To cover this unusual school year, we're asking parents to be a part of our yearbook staff by helping us capture what's happening in our students' lives.
What are some ways you could help us achieve this task? Consider:
· Follow us on Social Media. We will post invites to share your pictures on various topics. Just use this link to send us photos. https://images.jostens.com/415464703
· When you see an email regarding the yearbook, open it! We're using online forms to conduct interviews and ask for specific images we need to provide coverage when we are unable to be there in person. Complete the form requesting information and pictures. Easy!
· If you or a parent you know takes pictures at student events, please let us know. We want to feature every student in various aspects of their life. Look for those moments when they are just playing with their pet, working in their virtual learning space, playing their instrument, or enjoying a family meal. Other options include students participating in sports outside of school, virtual club meetings or events, theatre performances, art
projects or just candids of your kids. You get it! Send us pictures of everything so your student can be included.
This yearbook is unique in that it will be created by the whole school. Thank you in advance for being a part of this historic year. Don’t forget to reserve your copy at www.jostensyearbooks.com or call 1.877.767.5217. The book is on sale for the lowest price of the year until 10/23.
