Wilmer-Hutchins High School Week of [Feb 8th - Feb 12th]

Principal's Message

This weekend I came across books I read a while ago and it made me realize I haven't read a complete book this year. I've been reading excerpts from a few pieces of literature, but I haven't read a full book this school year for entertainment nor development.


I know there are some of you who are avid readers and read several books in a month or two. So, if you'd like to suggest a great book, please click here. For the rest of us, I challenge you to grab a book this weekend and enjoy the adventure.


Have a Wonderful Week!


Always Hutch Proud,

Mrs. Barnett

Professional Learning Community (PLC)/PD

We will not have PLCs this week due to TELPAS training. Please use the PLC time to do the online TELPAS training.
