W-WCHS sets two Open House events to assist freshmen (Wed.) and upperclassmen (Thur.)

Washington-Wilkes Comprehensive High School has announced that two different times have beenset aside in order for students and parents to become familiar with the school’s campus. Parents and students are asked to attend at the correct time for their particular grade level meetings.

Students will be allowed to walk the hallways in order to find their classes and meet their teachers, according to W-WCHS principal Steve Echols, and lockers may be rented during the open house at a cost of $5.

W-WCHS will welcome upcoming ninth grade students and their parents Wednesday, August 4, at 6 p.m. This meeting will begin in the W-WCHS cafeteria. Specific information will be disseminated to ninth graders and their parents regarding graduation requirements, courses of study, extra-curricular opportunities, behavior, and student movement through the school facility.

The school will host all upcoming tenth, eleventh, and twelfth grade students and their parents on Thursday, August 5, during a “drop-in” visitation running from 2-3:30 p.m. Eligible students will be allowed to purchase parking permits and lockers at this time.

In order for a student to qualify for a parking permit, he must have passed three out of four classes during the 2010 spring semester, must be on track for graduation, and must have a valid driver’s license. Cost for a parking permit is $10 for the year or $5 per semester.

The sale of parking permits and locker rentals will be held in the cafeteria. Ninth grade students are not eligible to drive or park cars on campus.

“It is the desire of W-WCHS to enhance parent/school communications,” Echols said. “We are committed to monitoring student progress and providing opportunities for parents to be informed and address concerns they may have. Through preventive measures and parent/ school collaboration, the students of W-WCHS can experience greater success. So, please come out and support this event, meet the educators involved in your child’s life, and learn about wonderful things happening at W-WCHS.”
