Upcoming College Visits – During Lunch:
The WHS Cheerleaders and Coaches would like to thank all the girls and parents that participated in the 2011 Little Girls Camp Fundraiser for the WHS Cheerleaders. We’d like to remind those that would like to perform this Friday (Sept 16th) with the cheerleaders to please meet the cheerleaders behind the press box at 6:30pm for a quick run through. We ask that the parents stay with their children at this time and bring them back to the track at the beginning of the 2nd quarter where they will cheer with the cheerleaders for the entire quarter until the halftime performance. After the halftime performance the parents can pick their child up on the track by the scoreboard. The DVD’s that were ordered at this years’ camp will have halftime performance on it and will be delivered to the Elementary once they are complete. Please see contact Sally Keenan for any questions you might have regarding the camp (217-836-6061)
Yearbooks for 2010-2011 graduates can be picked up from Mr. Gudwien this week. Siblings of graduates can pick them from Mr. Gudwien as well. We will be only giving graduates’ yearbooks to siblings. If graduates want someone else to take their yearbooks for them, they can email Mr. Gudwien (firstname.lastname@example.org) or call the office.
Students who did not order a 2010-2011 yearbook but would like to purchase one can do so by seeing Mr. Gudwien. The price is $55. Checks should be made out to WHS.
