Letter From The PresidentTo all members of the WHHS Association:
As this year comes to a close, it is a great time to review our progress and offer thanks. Thats what our students and the teachers and staff do, so why not the WHHS Association, too! So many family members got involved this year, and their help has been invaluable. A big thank you goes to the following special senior parent volunteers who have given years and countless hours of their time and commitment for WHHS and all of our students! Thank you to Tom Anderson, Valencia Harris-Brown, Maria Horn, Carol Philpott, Penny Poirer, and Joe Ross.
Our volunteers really made a difference, and here are examples of some firsts! ProvidedcommunityserviceopportunitiesforstudentsthroughourCleanUpDay
