If you missed the Senior Parent meeting, here is a recap:


We met the Senior Class officers in attendance and they did a run down of some of the things they would like to do and announced their first event, Senior Flick on the Field.


We met the Senior Class Advisors, Ms. Rabieh and Ms. Morel. They are the support from the school and work with the Senior class to come up with ideas and help execute their activities.


Introduced the Senior Class Parent Committee Co-Chairs: Ms. Blakely Meyers and Ms. Katheryn Snyder. They are a support and help get information out to parents and request donations and help assemble the needed volunteers for each event.

Important date: Wednesday, October 28th: Cap & Gown presentations during 3rd and 4th period (virtually for LaunchEd Seniors)

Rising Seniors need to know the difference between early decision, early action and a regular decision. Click here to learn the difference.

Last day for Seniors is Thursday, May 13!

Congratulations to West Orange HS students Sofia Aristy, Devin Estrada and Annalisa Harrington who have been chosen for the Paint Your Pointe Senior Painting Spot contest. They will be painting their senior spots on the roof of the parking garage at Pointe Orlando. Originally they were going to pick one student per school but because WOHS had so may well thought out entrants they chose more than one.

Be sure to keep track of where you are, so you are on track to graduate!
