Part of being an "All-Star Learner and Leader" is helping others. This year instead of hosting a WHS Family Fun Night at the school, we decided to coordinate a WHS School Community Service Night at Feed My Starving Children. Check out the Flyer below! Toward the bottom of the flyer you will find a direct link to register for this event.
Please consider joining the WHS Staff and Families in what promises to be a fun and rewarding night of community service. See details below!
Before School, Recess, and After School!
Students will have OUTDOOR recess unless the temperature (including the wind-chill) is below 10 degrees. The temperature is monitored each morning and before lunch from multiple data points. Children will go out if the temperature is above zero. Please send appropriate outdoor clothing including hats and mittens with your child to school.
- If students wish to play in the snow, they must wear BOTH snow pants and boots. If students are not wearing snow pants and boots, they are required to stay on our blacktop surface of playground for the lunchtime and classroom recess periods.
- Students are not allowed to throw snowballs, slide on ice, or play other games where student safety may be compromised.
- Snow forts are shared by ALL students regardless of age or grade. Children may add to them, but not destroy.
It is a great idea to keep an extra pair of socks, gloves or mittens in your child’s backpack. Students have a great time playing in the snow when appropriately dressed and following these guidelines.
