RE: Student Representative Report
On Thursday, October 27, Woodland High School is planning on having a community connect night. Connect Night will go from 4:00-6:00 and is directed towards involving community parents. WHS is also planning on incorporating clubs into the event, with each club providing information tables with students who are involved in that club to answer questions. Connect Night will also serve as an opportunity for parents to meet their student's teachers.
From October 3-7, WHS students became involved in many activities for Homecoming week! Monday kicked off Homecoming starting with the annual find the W along with spirit dress-up days. The overall school spirit was high, and the hunt for the W provided a lot of rivalry and fun competition between classes. Along with this, different classes were meeting throughout the week to prepare for the annual lip sync battle during the assembly on Friday. With the number of activities going on, homecoming week was a blast and many students participated in one way or another. At the Homecoming game itself, many students came to represent the student section and the Woodland Beavers brought home a win! Everyone seemed to enjoy halftime, especially since most community members were able to meet the princesses before the homecoming game. Timber Crew was also received well and many people enjoyed seeing the faces that represent our clubs and our school. Overall, homecoming was highly successful and enjoyed by WHS students and the community, and WHS students can’t wait to see what’s in store for next year.
On Monday, October 22, WHS students were evacuated from the High School due to a bomb threat initiated by a call that went to WPD. Students were notified of the evacuation through the fire alarm being pulled and walked to the football field. After attendance was taken, WPD was still searching the building, and administrators decided students were able to go home early with their parents or guardians, or they were released early through the busses when the school was able to get transportation. WPD determined there were no bombs in the building and school resumed the next day (on Tuesday).
If the school board is hoping for more data from students at WHS about October 10, then I am more than happy to provide that information through a survey to the students.
