There is a lot that goes on at WOHS each week. We post numerous items on the PTSO Facebook page and website during the week. These include pictures, videos, updated schedule items, sports scores, news, etc. Please like and follow our Facebook page and check the website for updates.
The PTSO is thrilled to open our 2020-2021 Teacher/Staff Grant program. This program is made possible through parents, students, and staff becoming members of the PTSO in addition to our Spirit Wear sales. Thank you for supporting our many programs.
Teachers and staff who are members of the WOHS PTSO can apply for a grant up to $200. It is an online application that goes to the PTSO Executive Board for approval.
This week we approved grants for Mrs. Deemer/Foreigh Language - Digital Programs, Mrs. Fisher/World Language - Digital Programs, Mrs. Goodman-Smith/CTE Tech Ed - Underwater Camera, Mrs. Long/CTE/Engineering - New saw for robot building, Mrs. Iannuzzi/SAFE/Wellness Team - supplies to build safe space.
All WOHS volunteers including SAC and PTSO need to sign up for ADDitions. All volunteers must register and be approved through the ADDitions Program according to district procedures. Please complete this process ASAP. You will only hear back if there is a problem with your application. Once submitted, you may begin logging your volunteer hours.
