PRIDE Time Information, Lesson and December Schedule

Students appear to be figuring out where they need to go during PRIDE Time on Hop & Stop days. We have identified "Monday" as a day for presentations and/or academic planning. This was based on a recommendation from the 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!

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.

Wrestling News

Wrestling Season 2018-19 is off to a fast start. The team is excited for the challenges that will present themselves this season.

Week 1 the boys were in Oregon at the Estacada Ranger Invitational Tournament. Washougal had seven wrestlers reach the Championship Finals. Two Panthers emerged victorious-Jonathan Wells at 120 and Scott Lees at 145. These champs led Washougal to a 2nd Place team trophy coming up short against a tough Oregon opponent in LaGrande HS.

Week 1 the girls travelled to Yelm High School, home of last year's State Championship Girl's Team, and our Lady Panthers squared off against 46 other schools. Our ladies finished in 8th place behind solid performances by two juniors, Aleksi Donahue and Josalyn Ortiz, who each earned a 3rd place medal, and were the top finishers for our Lady Panther Team.

The Boys and Girls Wrestling Teams will be at Mt. View HS to take on Mt. View and Skyview this Wednesday, Dec. 5 starting at 6 p.m.
