WHS STUDENTS ALL...

You all do know that a little bit can add up to a lot.  We need your help because a little bit is adding up to a lot right here at WHS!!!  Over $1,000 is owed to the school food services department.  (That is, the state, not WHS).  Many of you continue to hold deficit accounts.  You might think it's a small amount.  But when added up and multiplied by students, over many days--there are too many of you who assume you don't need to pay for lunches right away.  Please correct your perspecitve.  Bring money for lunch or pay ahead.  Do the math:  5 times $ for lunch (including breakfast or snack???) and you will get the weekly amount you need to put into your account.  Thanks a bunch for your cooperation.  P. Nekoba

Sign-ups are still going on for: Wrapping Toys for Tots at the State building, Recyling on the 4th, Gingerbread making (T.B.A.), and last polo t-shirt order if you don't have yours.  Also, we are still accepting donations for "Toys for Toys for Tots," the last day for sign-ups and donations is this Friday.  Thanks! - C.
