World Kindness Day | 11/13

Our ASB kids placed kindness mirrors around campus on Wednesday in honor of World Kindness Day (November 13th). Students took a pic, tagged ASB on social media, and were entered in a raffle.

Redeemable prizes included:

- Discounts on WHS merch

- A free vintage spirit shirt

- Free snacks/drinks from the ASB store

- Free tickets to a game or play

… and more!

The purpose of World Kindness Day, as outlined by the World Kindness Movement, is “to highlight good deeds in the community focusing on the positive power and the common thread of kindness which binds us.” As we hit the home stretch of the semester, we want to take a moment to recognize kindness, connection, empathy, and coming together as a family.

If marked absent, students will receive an email from the attendance office notifying them that they have been marked absent. The notification will include the date and period of the absence. The student will need to contact the Attendance Department to make any necessary corrections to their individual period attendance. For full-day absences, a parent/guardian must contact the attendance office by the end of the day.
