WFHS Principal Update - Week of September 10

Good evening WFHS Students and Families,

Please join us for Meet the Teacher Night this Wednesday, September 13th. This is a great opportunity to meet your student’s teacher. We are asking parents to arrive by 5:45 in order to visit various informational tables before you begin following your student's class schedule. 

Juniors and Seniors – Jostens will be at WFHS during lunches  in the main lobby on September 13th to hand out ordering information for graduation regalia and for class rings.

Senior Parent Night is on 9/14 at 6pm in the WFHS auditorium. Come and learn about planning for your student's senior year and beyond. Please see the attached flyer.

Senior Adds for the Yearbook. Please see the attached flyer that was given to Seniors this week.

AP Students- If you have a student enrolled in an AP course this semester, please know that they will have the option to take the AP exam in May. This exam score does not affect their grade in the class, nor does it go on their transcript. The purpose of taking the exam is to qualify to earn college credit for the class. The state of North Caroline pays the fee for students enrolled in the course to take the exam. In the coming weeks your child will have the opportunity to select to take the exam. Please discuss this opportunity with your student so that they are prepared to either opt in or out of taking the AP exam.

From PTSA – Please help us reach our goal of $5000 in the 2023-2024 COUGAR CHALLENGE!  An envelope was sent home with your student last week.  There are many ways to donate, you can send the envelope back to the front office, you can scan the QR code on the front of the envelope to donate online or follow this linkCougar Challenge

While donating, you can join the PTSA and/or give us your information to link your grocery store shopping cards for credit back to WFHS.  Thank you so much for supporting the WFHS PTSA!

Chromebooks - The initial distribution of Chromebooks for ninth graders who returned a device in 8th grade is complete.  Students in any grade who need a Chromebook, may come to the Media Center to request one.  Per Tech Services, it is currently taking approximately 10 business days for devices to be delivered to the school.  When devices are delivered, we will call students to the Media Center to pick them up. 

Kind regards,Melissa ThomasWFHS Principal
