High school juniors/seniors and parents:

Join us for a special information session at 10:15 a.m. or at 12:00 noon
Our department chair, faculty members, and a student representative will discuss the programs and majors we offer, what you can do with a computer science degree, and the student experience in the UNC Department of Computer Science.

We encourage all high school juniors and seniors to attend.

If any student is interested in attending, please let me know and I will forward you the link to register.  

SCA will be sponsoring a Kickball Tournament on Friday September 15th at 3:25.  We'll have Seniors vs. Juniors and Freshmen vs. Sophomores and then a final payoff for the championship.  If you'd like to play on a team, see Ms. Loury.

Juniors wishing to take the PSAT on October 11th, please sign up with Ms. Loury.  The test will begin at 8AM and will last about 3 hours.  Cost is $16 unless a student is currently approved for Free and Reduced Lunch.

Looking for a volunteer opportunity?  Ms. Loury has just updated her Volunteer page of her website.  Go to our school's main page then select "Programs and Services" at the top. You'll find Ms. Loury's page there.

WCC will hold their annual Back to School Bash next Wednesday, Sept. 30th from 11AM-2PM.  We will have Big Lunch this day so everyone can enjoy the events.  There will be free food (barbecue sandwich or hot dogs, snow cones), bungee races, a DJ, line dancing, inflatable rock wall, games and more!  Make sure you have a current up to date WCC ID card. 

Students:  Remember, you may leave at the end of the day through the back doors next to the front office, but you are never allowed to enter WEMCHS through those doors.

Juniors/Seniors:  Ms. Taylor's new office is going to be a trek...pack a lunch!  She is now located on the 2nd floor of WLC - 234.  When you go up the stairs, turn right and it's the first office complex on the left.

Key Club will have its year opening meeting today after school in the cafeteria at 5. Come by, have some pizza and here what Key Club is all about and what they have planned for the year.

Key Club Fall Rally - It is time to start planning for the annual Key Club Fall Rally held at Carowinds Amusement Park. We will leave here early Sunday morning, October 8th and arrive at the park around 9:00. Then, prepare yourself for a dynamic guest speaker and Key Club news before hitting the park at noon. We will have 5 hours of fun and excitement before heading back at 5:00. Cost is 85.00 per student ($40 if you have season tickets to Carowinds). Come to the Key Club meeting this afternoon or see one of the Key Club reps for forms and more information.

New York City - Do you have any plans for Spring Break 2018? How about hitting the Big Apple with your classmates? Just imagine, four days in NYC, a ritzy hotel, a Broadway play, and memories to last a lifetime. Come to our planning meeting on Thursday, August 31st at 5:00 in the WEMCHS Conference Room.

Juniors:  I have spoken to quite a lot of you in the past few days and have been asking how it's going in your classes.  Most have said that French and Spanish will be a challenge for you.  Yes, they will, but if you stay determined to stick with it, you will be fine.  The key to foreign language is to keep on top of it and remember that you cannot just get by in these classes.  If you feel like we need a group tutorial on something you are learning, let me know days and times that work for you.  

Manage that procrastination and push yourself!  You won't ever regret it!

Senior News:

Seniors - if you need Ms. Loury to reset your CFNC password, please come see her.

We will hold a "Paying for College Night" on Monday, September 18th at 6PM in WLC 161 (next to the cafeteria).  If you and your parents would like to learn about financial aid options, please consider coming.  We will discuss types of aid, the FAFSA and more.
