While things are not as usual, some things remain constant.

WHS PTSA is one of those things.

Whether our kids are learning remotely or in the classroom,

WHS PTSA continues to support students and families in a variety of important ways.

During EDL last spring, the PTSA did not take a break. We continued to provide support through monthly meetings which gave our members an opportunity to have conversations with Mr. Krebs about the status of our school. We delivered a scholarship, honorary service awards, a very special Teacher Appreciation Week, a welcome to 8th grade families, and special gifts and support for our graduating Class of 2020.

In the coming year, wherever your students are learning, the PTSA will support them and your families through special events, teacher and learning support, and community building programs like:

  • PTSA Meetings to Keep You Informed and Connected
  • Career & College Workshops
  • PTSA Website, Social Media and Newsletter
  • Honored Warrior Awards
  • Reflections Arts Program

  • Academic Team Competitions
  • Student Scholarships
  • Teacher Appreciation Week
  • Parent Education Programs
  • Classroom Mini Grants
