BLACK OUT BULLYING WEEK
Thursday: Wear Pink Day, a national movement to encourage standing up against those who bully. Travis Price’s started this anti-bullying movement in his Nova Scotia High School when he heard that a freshman student was being bullied because he wore a pink shirt day to school. The next day he brought 75 pink tank tops for all his friends to wear and the movement has grown ever since.
Friday: Red, White & Blue: Be a Super H.E.R.O day, (Help, Encourage & Respect Others).
COLLEGE VISITS OCTOBER 20th-24th
October 20-24 is a very busy week at WPHS for college visits as we have 25 colleges scheduled to meet with our students. Students must bring their confirmation sheet, signed by a teacher, to enter a college visit. There are some college visits scheduled during lunch times and only students who are attending those specific visits may eat in the College & Career Center during that time.
Students are welcome to stop by throughout the week as needed but everyone else is encouraged to make an appointment to insure that we can best serve you. Kellie Stewart, College & Career Center Specialist, firstname.lastname@example.org
