This year at WCHS, we are excited to be implementing an initiative entitled Sources of Strength. This group is comprised of 70 peer leaders and 25 adult advisors, who completed a training with national certified trainers. Sources of Strength will be striving to implement messages of hope, help, and strength throughout the school. We will focus on 8 core areas of strength. These strengths are family support, positive friends, mentors, healthy activities, generosity, spirituality, medical access, and mental health. 

The mission statement of Sources of Strength is as follows:

We are a group of diverse students and adults from many different corners and cultures of our school and community. We believe that life has ups and downs, that all of us will go through good times and tough times. Our mission is to ensure that during the rough times no one gets so overwhelmed or hopeless that they want to give up.

Our mission is to spread Hope, Help, and Strength into every corner of our community.   

Our mission is to help students and staff turn to their strengths and their supports that are all around. We are Connectors to Help and Strength.

Our mission recognizes that our voice  has great power and we use it to BREAK the SILENCE when someone is struggling, and to connect them to the help they need and deserve.   

We Spread Hope by focusing on stories of strength, rather than on stories of trauma. We know our most powerful impact comes from our personal actions, conversations, and messages that use our music, our art, our writing, our activities, our social media, our culture, and our voice. This gives life to our efforts.

We are Sources of Strength!!

Happy Last Week of School, Tigers!


The Roar staff is beyond excited to publish the final issue of the school year: the annually anticipated Senior Issue*. It is a 20 page, full color issue that highlights the seniors, what went on in 2017-2018, and much more!

In my first year as advisor for this amazing group of writers, I have been lucky to see amazing hardwork, dedication, innovation, and cooperation. These staffers, along with their editors, really worked hard all year to come together and create great content for our school. I have learned more from these students than I can say, and I feel so fortunate to have been given the opportunity to walk alongside them as they created this work.

Thank you for your support this year! I have seen the number of downloads and the number of papers we've passed out rise, and it is wonderful to see so many people reading The Roar! Thank you!

We will miss our seniors, but we know that they are headed toward beautiful journeys and we can't wait for them to report back to us!
