Culminating Activities for Bullying Awareness Month
Bear Down On Bullying Assembly:
"Stick it 2 Bullies" Schoolwide Display
During our October Star Constellations Lesson, each of our 31 school groups made bumper stickers with anti-bullying messages. We now have a display in the WHS All Purpose Room (APR) that will feature rotating bumper stickers. We have over 200 student-made messages to feature on the the car that is parked in the APR. Bumper stickers will be swapped out each month!
Lost and Found at WHS? Does Anything Look Familiar?
A Look Way Ahead! "Stars and Spike" 5K Fun Run! Saturday, May 5th, 2018.
- This Event will be called "The Stars and Spike 5K Fun Run". As you know our WHS school mascot is the "The Stars" and the MD school mascot is "Spike" the bulldog.
- The date for this event will be on the morning of Saturday May 5th. This will be a busy time for us. Our WHS talent show is scheduled for Friday, May 4th. Due to Village of Lombard Scheduling, permits, and spacing with the "Mutt Strutt", May 5th is the confirmed date for our event. Save the date!
- Keep your eyes out for ways you can help support this event after the new year!
