Tutoring in Library from 3:30 to 4:30 Tuesday and Thursday with transportation home after.

Parents, please remember that we have added more tutoring services for students in both middle school and high school. If your student needs some extra help before they take those finals, this is the perfect option. Or, do you want to make sure that they start the second semester on a positive note? Again, this tutoring can help. Tutors are available for any student from 3:30 to 4:30 PM in the Library. Then students can ride a special activity bus home. These are peer tutors that can help with just about any subject where there is a need. Don't let you student stress in silence. Tell them to go in and get help!

Physical Education at WNHS

Students at WNHS are lucky to be able to participate in a variety of PE classes, many that provide a foundation for years of healthy living, long after high school. One of those classes is Walking for Fitness. Recently, (see photos below) since we had a lot of snow, students were able to experience what it was like to use snow shoes while walking. Great exercise and lots of fun too!

Students Being Honored Next Week.

Next week we have two special recognition events for students. The first one is our Student of the Month Breakfast. This will be held Friday at 7:30 AM. Students are individually selected by each department for their special contributions to our school through any facets of the Thunder Way: Never Give Up, Own Your Choices, Respect Differences, Take Chances, and Have Pride (N.O.R.T.H.) Each student is served a special breakfast with their families. This is a very special event for all our chosen students.

The second event is our Quarterly Thunder Way Cafe. This will also be on Friday. Students will receive a special invitation (pictured above) next week to participate in the Thunder Way Cafe during their lunch period if they have accomplished the following things: No F's, 2 or less excused absences and no unexcused absences, no tardies to any classes, and no disciplinary incidents. Our last Cafe was pizza. The menu for this Cafe is an ice cream sundae with lots of special toppings of the student's choice. Teachers and Staff take time out of their professional duties to serve the kids. We have noticed that each quarter our number of eligible students is growing, so this can only mean good things for North. If your student has been chosen for either of these special events, be proud of them and help them celebrate at home too!
