Stuff-the-Bus 2018

Thank you to everyone who helped make the 11th annual Stuff-the-Bus event possible! Special thanks to Kyla Ritchey for her leadership and tremendous organizational skills! I was fortunate enough to ride along with our students as we picked up all of the donated items throughout the district. I couldn't be more proud of our students! They were amazing the entire day!

The total weight of food and other items collected for this year's STB was 54,180 lbs. The Washougal School District collected 26,100 lbs and the Camas School District collected 28,080 lbs. This was a competition once again and we were victorious because we averaged 8.53 lbs/student and Camas averaged 2.9 lbs/student. The Childrens' Home Society was completely empty when the first bus rolled up on Friday afternoon and now it is packed with lots and lots of food for our families in need.

Parent Advisory Council Meeting

Monday, Dec. 17th, 6pm

1201 39th Street

Washougal, WA

The Washougal High School Parent Advisory Council (PAC) is comprised of parents who want to know more about the inner workings of Washougal High School. The PAC meets nearly once a month to discuss issues of importance to the entire school community and is a representative body that provides the perspective of parents to the WHS administration through regular communication with the principal. The PAC also serves to provide parent feedback on school policies and procedures and has a role in the development and implementation of the WHS School Action Plan. If there are issues parents want to discuss at a PAC meeting, they should contact Aaron Hansen, Principal, at aaron.hansen@washougalsd.org or 360-954-3101.

At our January 14 Parent Advisory Council meeting we will have Superintendent, Dr. Mary Templeton sharing information regarding our District Strategic Planning process.

RSVPs are enabled for this event.

What is PRIDE Time?

PRIDE Time occurs four days a week from 12:55 - 1:25 pm (between 5th & 7th period). PRIDE Time allows for us to provide targeted support to students that is embedded in our school day. PRIDE Time provides an opportunity to assist students in meeting graduation requirements, reduce failing rates, increase graduation rates and provide enrichment opportunities in a school-wide, focused approach.

We have identified "Monday" as a day for presentations and/or academic planning. This was based on a recommendation from our Climate and Culture Team for two main reasons:

  • This would give teachers consistent time once a week with their PRIDE TIme students. One of the main reasons we moved to grade level PT was so stronger bonds could be developed.
  • Students can look at their grades and make a plan for the week where they need to go. This time will give PRIDE Time teachers an opportunity to encourage students with multiple failing classes to develop a plan for success.

PRIDE Time Vocabulary

Presentation Day - During Presentation Days we will be providing information to students in a variety of ways. Students will report to their PRIDE Time classroom and stay there during that period. Learning will take place!

Hop & Stop - Students will check in with their PRIDE Time teacher and then make a responsible decision how to use PRIDE Time. The expectation is that students work on their work which may involve going to a specific teacher, working in the library, the commons or staying in their PRIDE Time classroom. Learning will take place!

Stay & Study - Students report to their PRIDE Time room and remain there during the duration of that period (25 minutes). Students are expected to work on their work. Learning will take place!
