Students need to sign up in their English classes by end of day Tuesday, Oct. 28. 


Parent-Teacher Conferences
Oct 28 & 30

Parent-teacher conferences are Tuesday, October 28th, 5:00 – 8:30 PM, and Thursday, October 30th, 2:30 – 6:30 PM.  Please be aware that several fall activities continue during this week. Conferences by appointment are recommended; however, we recognize some may prefer to stop by when available. The high school office is currently scheduling conferences on 15-minute intervals at 742-3524.

Please remember conference times are limited to 15 minutes.  Time moves quickly so if more time is needed, we are happy to schedule additional time either with a grade-level team or with a specific teacher during an alternate time.  Administrators and counselors are also available, and very willing to visit. 

Please feel welcomed to come tour the building, visit with staff, ask questions, and gain any information about available resources we might offer.  Here are a couple of helpful sites are included for your review regarding parent-teacher conference tips and helpful questions one might ask:
WHS Staff are looking forward to visiting with you.

Digital Citizenship
Tip #11

For the Good of the Cause

There are many ways that social media can be used for good. For example:

Champion a Cause: From animal rights to bullying awareness, social media is the perfect tool for social activities.

Join a Group: Connect and discuss your interests with like-minded people.


Find a College: Make an informed decision about where to go to school by chatting with current students and faculty.


Market a Talent: Stars are born every day online. No need to move to California to pursue that recording contract. One viral video may be just the break you need.


Create Family Photo Albums: What better way to keep your distant relatives up-to-date on your activities. 





Digital Citizenship
Tip #14

Don’t Spread Gossip

Thanks to websites like Twitter, breaking news can reach millions of people within seconds. In some cases, this is a good thing. Social media users are among the first to learn about important events and news. When the news is false, however, the speed of social media spells trouble. Passing on false information is as bad as telling a lie, even done so unknowingly. Gossip can destroy a person’s reputation, and it isn’t something you should take lightly.



Digital Citizenship
Tip #13

Don't Give in to Pic Pressure

Trust your instincts and make decisions that make you feel comfortable and happy. It is never okay for someone to pressure you into doing something that you are not okay with, and it’s also normal to feel uncomfortable with sending a revealing photo of yourself. Be aware that some U.S. teens have been charged with crimes or threatened with criminal charges for sending pictures of themselves to others. Need help saying “no”? Check out these Callout Cards for ideas. If someone sends you a revealing pic you should tell them to stop, and talk to your parents or a trusted adult about it. 



Digital Citizenship
Tip #10

Should You Share that Picture?
Is there anything about your picture that could get you in trouble, like nudity, alcohol, or drugs? Remember, this picture will be public. If you are sharing a picture privately, remember the receiver has several ways they can grab a copy and whatever they want with it, months or years from now. 






Digital Citizenship
Tip #12

Don’t Share Your Passwords  
  
Don’t share your passwords, even with your bff or sweetheart. You are responsible for what is posted on your social media accounts. You don’t have to share a password to prove your loyalty or love. By the same token, you shouldn’t ask others to share their passwords with you.
