Students and staff invite members of the community to come to the Winters High School campus for the spring open house on Wednesday, April 17 from 6-7:30 p.m. to see what’s happening at the school.

At 6 p.m., teachers, parents and students will celebrate student success at the awards ceremony for grades 9, 10 and 11 in the gym. Members of the junior class will be selling Buckhorn tri-tip sandwiches with chips and a drink for $8 in the quad area. This is also where WHS clubs and organizations, along with some parent booster organizations, will set up booths.

Associated Student Body (ASB) representatives will provide information about the blood drive on Friday, May 10 with the required parent permission slips on hand. Yearbooks will be on sale, but be aware that there are only a few left and they are sold on a first-come first-served basis. Interested freshmen, sophomores and juniors should stop by the ASB booth to pick up application packets for next year’s ASB class. This booth is also where students and parents can donate money to this year’s Penny Drive, a fundraiser for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.

Other organizations preparing informational booths are Interact, the student affiliation of Rotary International, Friends Without Borders which will have scholarship applications available and Friday Night Live with information promoting a healthy lifestyle free of drugs and alcohol.

A variety of events begin at 6:30 p.m., including demonstrations by the award-winning robotics team and, in the Margaret Parsons room at the Winters Community Library, an art show featuring the 2D and 3D creations of WHS students. While at the library, parents should be sure to participate in the scavenger hunt where they can earn a ticket for extra credit in a class for their sons and daughters.

Teachers will open their classroom doors beginning at 6:45 p.m. Members of the community can view the products created by students over the course of the school year and take advantage of the opportunity to visit the newly opened Career/Tech Center.
