We have an idea for Senior Award/Robing Ceremony on the 18th.  We are wondering if any seniors would like to help us with the opening of the program by making varied statements about WEMCHS.  Some examples could be things like...WEMCHS is...family, freedom, support, etc... Students may also want to use other completers like...WEMCHS taught me..., WEMCHS gave me.... WEMCHS helped me.... WEMCHS showed me..., etc.  If any seniors are willing to take the stage and participate, please let Ms. Loury know.   

Seniors applying for the Mustang Honor Cord...your application is due tomorrow!

Senior gowns for the robing ceremony on the 18th need to be handed in by May 15th.  Please bring in just the gown and not the cap, collar or anything else.  Please bring your gown to Ms. Loury or Ms. Shanita.

Oops...forgot this one important announcement...
Our own Miss WEMCHS, Arianna Bard, is still collecting mascara wands for the national Wands for Wildlife program.  She will be sending off the wands at the end of the month. 

These small brushes are used by the wildlife rehabilitators to remove fly eggs and larva from the fur of injured and orphaned wild animals. The wands work great because the bristles are so close together and soft enough not to injure the animals.

Please consider donating your old wands for this great cause!
