Congratulations to all incoming ninth graders and the class of 2020. You are bringing your individuality and your amazing talents to a diverse and vibrant WUHS community. Being an incoming freshman can be a stressful experience. Fortunately, WUHS offers all ninth graders a chance to familiarize themselves with teachers, other students, and learn about advisory, our school code of conduct, and how technology is used. By participating in the 9th Grade Orientationyou are preparing for a smooth beginning to your freshmen year.
After you have had a chance to get to each of your classes once over the first two days of school - all 9th graders will have an in-school field trip for an orientation day of fun activities to fully introduce you to the high school experience and answer any questions you may have. School starts Wednesday, August 26 and we look forward to 9th Grade Orientation on Friday, August 28 from 8:00-2:45 at WUHS.

Absolutely one of our favorite events of the year and glorious exclamation point at the end of a wonderful school year. Powerful, dramatic, sensitive, angst, comical, whimsical, profound....are just a few ways of describing the amazing art on display each spring during the annual art show. Join us for this multi-day event held each year in the middle school gymnasium.

Seven members of the Sociedad Honoria Hispánica, Spanish Honors Society, took a three-day trip to NYC this previous weekend. Activities included visits to Museo del Barrio to see an exhibit on the life and work of the Mexican cinematographer, Gabriel Figueroa, the New York Botanical Gardens, to see an exhibit celebrating the life and paintings of Frida Kahlo and to Repertorio Español, a Spanish-language playhouse, to see a play called Aire Frío. It was such a fun and trip and the member of la Sociedad were able to immerse themselves in the Hispanic culture that is present here in the USA. Click on the image to view the entire gallery.
