Principal's Newsletter-April 2024

Dear Parents/Guardians and Students,

We have reached that point in the year where everything begins to move at a faster pace the closer we get to the start of the fourth quarter; remember the third quarter will come to a close next Friday.

Our Senior Experience/Senior Internship Program officially starts on Monday, April 15.  We held a final Senior Assembly today to go over, one last time, all of the requirements and expectations connected to the program as well as important dates and reminders with regards to graduation and prom.  More information will follow and be sent by standard mail to senior households later in the month.

Additionally, April provides us with two wonderful opportunities to see the vocal and instrumental talents of our students on stage.  This year the K-12 Music Department is organizing a “Pops Night” on April 18th which will be a fun night for our music program.  On April 25th at 8:00 pm our Annual Spring Concert will showcase the incredible talents of our WHS students under the direction of Mr. Capano and Ms. Denler.

Solar Eclipse

This highly anticipated event will occur on Monday, April 8th, and be seen in our skies between approximately 2:30 - 4:00 pm.  While our students will not be in classes during the eclipse, we will be giving all students solar glasses in their Homeroom (Period 2) on Monday.  Please take a moment to remind your child not to look directly at the eclipse without protective eyewear.

Congratulations

On Wednesday, April 3, we honored 24 new inductees into the Math Honor Society (Mu Alpha Theta).  Additionally, on April 10, we look forward to celebrating the induction of 18 WHS students into the Science National Honor Society.  These new members have not only demonstrated their dedication to mathematics and science respectively, but also the skills and competencies we seek to instill in all our students.   Thank you to Ms. Locher (Mathematics) and Ms. Speisman (Science) for their leadership and commitment to their students and organization.  Congratulations to these new members.

Last, as you may have read from earlier district communications, we will be hosting representatives from the Tri-States Consortium on Wednesday, April 10, through Friday, April 12.  These colleagues will spend time talking to our staff and students, as well as parents, and visit classrooms, all in an effort to give us constructive feedback on our goals in connection to the district’s strategic plan.  I am excited for this visit and for the Tri-State Team to observe the incredible work of our students and staff.
