Wolf Call Weekly
The mission of West Hills High School is to graduate critical thinkers and problem-solvers who contribute positively to society as productive, responsible citizens.
Counseling is hosting several after-school workshops this month. Please visit the Counseling office to sign up for them ASAP.
We are offering Scholarship Application assistance for students interested in applying for scholarships. We will be in the College and Career Center (L-1) from 3 - 3:30pm every Monday in March.
Need money to help pay for your college and career goals?? We are hosting "Funding Your Future" Workshops where you will learn more about Financial Aid and Scholarships available to help pay for life after high school. Workshops are at 3pm via Zoom on Wednesday, March 2nd and Tuesday, March 29th.

We will offer a Military/First Responders Workshop to help students access resources and opportunities to help them have a better chance of successfully earning spots in academies and other related programs for the military, law enforcement, and firefighting/paramedics.

Asking for help is a sign of STRENGTH Wolf Pack!!
Hello Class of 2022 students and parents:
Just a quick reminder that graduation is one milestone in front of you in June (see our Senior Handout emailed several weeks ago) but we want every senior to have a plan for post high school whether that be a 4 year or 2 year college or university, trade school, the military, or working in a family business. Please be sure to read the Daily Bulletin, subscribe to the @whhs.counseling Instagram page, and take advantage of our almost weekly presentations on campus at student lunch. We also have many "open lab" events in L-1 after period 5 for seniors on topics like resume writing, college or trade school application help, completing the Federal Financial Aid Form (FAFSA), and much more.
Questions about your plans for graduation? Please see your counselor or check out the resources on our Counseling web page for Seniors.
You got this Class of 2022! Go Wolf Pack!

Loss of Privilege Policy
Loss of Privilege (LOP) List: This exists to support the idea that our primary function is “Academics First” and that student behaviors and choices need to prioritize attendance and following school rules. Students may earn their way off of the LOP list through attendance at detention and / or Saturday school after talking with their Assistant Principal. They can also lose a privilege that was granted (i.e. serving Saturday School to be eligible to purchase a Dance Ticket, but then repeat actions (or new actions) that put them back on LOP so that attending Dance is no longer available to them and a dance ticket refund is issued). All students begin Semester 2 off the list. Totals from Semester 1 do not count for Semester 2.
See our Loss of Privilege Policy HERE.
Mental Health Resources
Our Teacher Librarian Mrs. Sannwald, has created a wonderful Mending Matters Resource Library page! Click HERE to check it out!
If you are in need of any mental health resources, please reach out to your Guidance Counselor or our Mending Matters resources linked above.
In the event you are in crisis after school hours,
please call 9-1-1 or go to a hospital immediately to get professional help.
Little gymnastics experience is fine. Hope to you see you in the gym soon! For more information, please email Coach Linnea at Lrcampbell@ymcasd.org
Hello Wolf Pack Students and Families:
Recently our school board approved a three year calendar. For ease of reading and planning for students and families, we brought them together in one document for you. If you could please plan your family time around our announced Summer, Thanksgiving, Winter, and Spring breaks, this would help your student stay on top of classroom instruction and learning. We know this is not always possible, but we just wanted to share this for possible advance planning.
Multi-year Calendar for Students and Parents: 2022-23; 2023-24; 2024-25.
Thank you....let's go Wolf Pack!
