Attention Seniors!

Seniors you are reminded that you must have a Student Aid Report (SAR) attached to your Polk Education Foundation scholarship application this year, so now is the time for you to complete the FAFSA to make sure you have a SAR back by the middle of January to apply for all awards administered by the Polk Education Foundation.  Service hours and test scores will be pulled at application time from your student record system. You are encouraged to have all community service hours updated before you start your application.  If you do not meet the minimums noted, the system will screen you out of applying for those you do not qualify for and the system does not allow you to go back and “fix” it after you submit your application.  The application will open the middle of January.


Senior Graduation

The Class of 2018 graduation commencement will be held on Tuesday, May 22, 8 pm, Denison Stadium.

Career Program

Career Connections is a partnership between WHHS and the Chamber of Commerce. We match our students to professionals and offices for the career in which the student has an interest. The student meets with the professional after school hours so it does not interfere with class time. It is a great opportunity for our students to gain an understanding of the specific career in which they have expressed interest.

Often our students have opinions/ views about particular careers and this is a way for them to talk to the person that is actually in the field and get advice and guidance. All they need to do to sign up is go to Nikki Jordan (Room: 36-214) and she will give them the paperwork to sign. Please help encourage this program, it really is a fantastic learning opportunity!
