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.

The West Orange HS Clinic is in desperate need of donations of feminine sanitary pads. They could use donations of clean athletic shorts or sweatpants/athletic pants in all sizes. They do not need to be new, but should be clean and in good repair. Thank you for any assistance you can provide!

If you or your business is interested in helping out, we are always looking for sponsors for our Ultimate Warrior Scholarship. Your donation to our Ultimate Warrior Scholarship will provide funding to help WOHS students with post-secondary education or career training.

Thank you for supporting this scholarship!
