Dear Parents, Students, and WOHS Community,
I hope this find you and your family enjoying the Holiday season. The Month of Caring (#WOmoc16) has become a annual event at WOHS as our school community comes together in service to others. The Month of Caring typically begins after Thanksgiving break and culminates in our Holiday assembly held on the day before Christmas break. The 2016 WO Month of Caring was possibly the largest fundraising event in school history. Student Senate did a tremendous job once again leading M.O.C. activities which included the following:
- 1st Hour Food Drive
- Operation Toy Drive (Adopt-A-Child): Nov. 28- Dec. 09
- Stuff the Bus (Sponsored by NHS & CTEE)- Saturday December 3, 8 AM- 2 PM
- Senior Survivor 2016: Friday December 16- Wednesday December 21
- Holiday Assembly- Wednesday, December 21
Be prepared to get into the Holiday Spirit with the annual Holiday Assembly! Our choirs, orchestra and jazz band will be decking the halls…or Gymnasium…with festive tunes. There will also be games, skits and clubs highlighted in this hour of festive fun!
