Wake Up Call - A Substance Abuse Education Program
Parents! On Tuesday, November 17th , Your Choice to Live, Inc. will present Wake Up Call, a substance abuse educational program, virtually from 7:00-8:30 PM. This event will be a live virtual event. Attendees will remain anonymous during the event. No one except for the host will be able to see attendee name and the presentation platform does not allow attendees to turn on their cameras or microphones.
The rise in the use of vaping devices and other substances among youth is a growing concern. Are you familiar with carts? Dabs? Box mods? If you have young people in your life, you should be.
The Wake Up Call presentation, a program of Your Choice, provides practical information on current drug trends, a walk-through of a teens' bedroom with more than 50 red flags that could indicate substance abuse, as well as proactive parenting strategies to keep your child substance free.
For more information or to register for this FREE event, please visit: https://us02web.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_Jk4Qd34yTKKh4GK8XgfFcQ. Registration is required (ages 21 and older only).
Blue Light Glasses - Free
If you are interested in having your student receive a free pair of blue light glasses, please ask your student to complete this form. Students must be the ones that complete the form.
Did you order your Cap and Gown?
All Seniors should have received an email about ordering their cap and gown from Josten's. Cap and Gown orders are due by November 25th. Please ask your student to share the emails they have received with you so that as a parent you are fully informed.
To access the information from our website, go to the WNHS Homepage and scroll down until you see the image of the graduation cap. There is a link in that article that will take directly to Josten's homepage for all the information. The basic package, with only those things that are essential for your graduate, is $60. Click here for the same link. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to call our Josten's rep (his number is on the webpage) or to call our main office.
Seniors & College Applications
So don't delay! The scholarship deadline for many schools is December 1, 2020. If you submit your application, often times this is enough to qualify for scholarships from the college or university that you are applying to.
If you have any questions, reach out to your counselor or Mrs. Harmer!
