Good day to all,

This is a busy week here at WCHS/WACC as we conclude our semester and ready ourselves for the much anticipated Christmas Break!

End of course assessments will take place beginning with the 7th period class on Weds. As a reminder, the Thursday Bell Schedule will be that of our normal Weds. Bell Schedule. Students will have periods 1, 3, and 5 assessments. On Friday, we will run our regular Thurs. Bell Schedule. Students will be assessed periods 2, 4, and 6. We will also have a special Enrichment time by celebrating our "A" students and having members of our Performing Arts groups present a Christmas program.

We would like to remind students that the regular school day on Friday ends at 2:10 with PLC to follow. Parents are encouraged to pick up their student at this time on Friday. If you cannot arrange a ride for your student, busses will run for anyone not having a ride to leave early at the normal 2:50 PM time.

On behalf of the WCHS Administrative Team,

Season's Greetings and a Happy New Year!
