Back-to-School Night

Good afternoon, Warrior families!  I trust that your school year has gotten off to a great start–I know that mine has!

I wanted to take a minute and invite each of you to our annual Back-to-School night this Thursday at WAHS.  As you may know, this is an evening when you can come out to the school and live the life of your high school student for a night.  You will go through an abbreviated version of your child’s schedule, have an opportunity to meet each one of his or her teachers, and hear a brief presentation about what their classes will be like this year.  I hope that you leave each class excited about the experiences your kids will have with us.

Traditionally we begin this night with our State of the School address.  I’ve decided to move this address to the end of our evening this year so that we can get you all straight into your kids’ classes.  If you are interested in staying for the address, we will begin in the auditorium shortly after our last class meets for the night.

Back-to-School night begins at 6:30 and our class schedule will be as follows:

  • 1A, 1B, 2A, 2B, 3A, 3B, 4A, 4B, early bird/virtual classes
  • Each class will meet for 6-7 minutes with four minutes to change classes
  • The state of the school address will begin approximately 10 minutes after our 4B class ends.

If you have a student who is participating in the AVID program, there will be a meeting in room B214 from 6:00-6:30, and if you have a student with an IEP, there will be a meeting in room C106 from 6:00-6:30.  Also, Ms. Padron, our gifted resource teacher, will be available for drop in visits throughout the evening outside of her office.

I’m looking forward to seeing all of you on Thursday!
