Class of 2022

December Newsletter

Greetings, Class of 2022 Students, Parents, & Guardians,

I hope you all had a quiet and restful break! The countdown officially begins to the end of the semester, with 3 weeks to winter break, and only 4 days of classes in January before finals start for 1st semester. There are many things to look forward to as seniors during second semester! Please take a few minutes to review the senior calendar of events as well as the WPO activities that support the Class of 2022. Our Senior Day will take place on April 5. In the past, the senior class has gone to Six Flags. I don't believe that will be an option this year, so we will be looking for other activities and venues for us to have fun together on that day. If you have any suggestions, please email them to me!

Finish Strong Seniors!

Stay warm,

Dr. Kate Piffel

Senior Principal
