What is NAHS?
In 1978, the National Art Education Association began the National Art Honor Society program specifically for high school students for the purpose of inspiring and recognizing those students who have shown outstanding ability in art. The NAHS strives to aid members in working toward the attainment of the highest standards in art areas, and to bring art education to the attention of the school and community. We are celebrating 12 years of NAHS at WCHS.
The purpose of the National Art Honor Society at WCHS is to:
Serve as an inspiration for students to strive for higher goals in their work.
Foster excellence and a dedicated spirit in the pursuit of art.
Encourage the creative abilities and talents of the individual students.
Bring student art to the attention of the school and community.
Increase the awareness of art as a viable area within the total school curriculum

WC Youth Basketball 3v3 Fall Academy
Our High School Coaching Staff will be hosting a K-8 3V3 Fall Basketball Academy for any players interested. If you know any boys who may be interested, please pass along!
A big goal of ours this year is to improve our program's connectivity to our youth athletes in our feeder program and at our middle schools. Building relationships with our student-athletes from a young age is important for both our program and the kids in our township. Therefore we will be providing more playing, training, and development opportunities for K-8 players in Warren Township.
The Fall 3v3 Academy is our first initiative. Sep 7, 14, 21, 28 and Oct. 7 are the dates. Players will get 30 minutes of high-level skill development training, and 30 minutes of 3v3 gameplay, culminating in a 3v3 tournament the final weekend. Please see the registration form below.
