HOMECOMING KICK-OFF & CLOSING RALLIES:

Both rallies are closed to the public.  Please do not encourage outsiders to attend as they will be turned away at the door.  The rallies are for current Waiakea HS students, staff, and invited guests. - D. Tanabe

DEBATE TEAM

The formation of a debate team at Waiakea is long overdue. Debate is a fun and entertaining activity that can be related to every subject. If we could get enough students involved, we could create a team and maybe compete in competitions. Learning how to debate is an extremely beneficial skill. It would also look great on your college applications! If you're interested, please contact Emma Fenn or Ms.Ellsworth by Friday Oct.19. - M. Ellsworth

FACULTY & STAFF

TEACHERS

Many of you are forgetting to close your doors and keep them closed for the first 10 minutes of class each period.  If possible, do not send students out of the class during the first 10 minutes of class, to assist security and administration with rounding up the students who are late to class and in getting them to Lock Out. Your help with this would be greatly appreciated.  Thank you.  - J. Kruse
