Attendance Matters

posted Oct 31, 2017, 11:25 AM by Jennifer Swindler

absenteeism
- If you think missing a day here or there won’t matter, think again. By missing just one day every two weeks, you would be on track to miss two full weeks of the school year.

• Did you know that a student who misses 10 days or more during a school year is 20 percent less likely to graduate from high school and 25 percent less likely to ever enroll in college?

• Chronic absence can affect your ability to earn a living. Dropouts are less likely to succeed in a career.  In fact, a high school graduate makes, on average, $1 million more than a dropout over a lifetime.

• School only gets harder when you skip a class. Sometimes it’s tempting to skip or stay home because you don’t understand what’s going on in class. But missing a day only makes that worse because you aren’t learning something that will help you understand a lesson later on.

Remember, it's easier to keep up than to catch up! Make every day count and be in school/class  every day and on time!

Fall Theatre Production

Peter and the Starcatcher
- Fall isn't complete without a fantastic WHS Theatre production!  This Fall the production will be Peter and the Starcatcher.  
Synopsis:
Peter and the Starcatcher provides a humorous and fantastical backstory for the beloved character of Peter Pan and his arch-nemesis Captain Hook. In this wickedly imaginative play, we meet a poor orphaned child on the high seas simply called Boy because, in the absence of a mother and a father, he was never given a name. His sad and lonely world is turned upside down when he meets Molly. The daughter of famous Starcatcher Lord Astor, our heroine is on a mission to save the world and protect a treasure trunk filled with magical star stuff from getting into the hands of evil and greedy pirate Black Stache. As they travel aboard the Neverland ship headed for a faraway land, Molly and Boy learn about love, friendship and forge an unbreakable bond.

Show dates:
Friday, Nov. 10 - 7:30pm
Saturday, Nov. 11 - 7:30pm
