2017 Yearbook
If you were part of the WHCA family last year and have been wondering about last year’s yearbook, you no longer have to be in suspense. The 2017 yearbook is finally finished and ready to begin your customization. Treering yearbooks offer each customer two pages on which they can add personalized photos. Follow the link included to create an account or login to your existing account. Your custom pages and payment for the yearbook must be completed by Friday, September 8, 2017, to receive them with the rest of the student body. The 2016-2017 (last year’s) yearbook will cost $27.00 and includes free shipping. Please contact Mr. Hucks if you have any questions. https://www.treering.com/validate?PassCode=1014610934553868

We take great pains to be sure that each student is represented throughout the yearbook as well as in their class section, but, of course, we can’t include every moment of a student’s school year. One of the best things about TreeRing is that each yearbook includes two customizable pages where you can add your own photos or choose others from the selection we have uploaded. A TreeRing yearbook is truly a great way to preserve memories from your child’s school year.

T-shirts and Hoodies
Please use the attached sheet to order your t-shirts or hoodies. Orders are due by Friday, September 1, 2017.

Labor Day – No School
Our school will be closed Monday, September 4, 2017, in observance of Labor Day.

Student ID and Attendance
WHCA is moving to an active attendance policy instead of a passive attendance policy. Instead of assuming the student is here and then making sure that they are, each student will need to scan their ID card when they arrive at school. The cost of the new ID badges was included as part of the fees that you paid. If your child loses or destroys their badge, they will be charged $5.00 for a replacement.

This new method of attendance will be more accurate and allow you to have a clearer view of your child’s attendance and tardiness. Please contact Mr. Hucks if you have any questions.

Parent Portal
Be on the lookout in the near future for new log-in information regarding our parent portal. We have a new system in place this year; therefore, your old log-in information is no longer valid. As usual, please don’t hesitate to call us with any questions you may have regarding this or any other concerns.
