Last week, we recognized students who received a nomination for the Bulldog Trait of the Month. November's trait was COURAGEOUS! Congrats to all these students who were selected by staff members for showing courage in a variety of situations - in and out of school!

Our students and families came through for our recent food drive! We were thrilled to collect, deliver, and help sort over 1300 items to the food pantry at Concord Presbyterian Church. So many students gave and our Student Council helped deliver and sort with the pantry staff. They were so grateful to receive the help and asked us to send a huge thank you out to our school community for supporting the work they do helping local families! Happy Thanksgiving!

We asked, and you delivered! Thank you to all the parents who responded to our requests for some volunteers in the concessions at the dance next week and for help in the library during the school day. We now have all the help we need for these two requests. Stay tuned for other opportunities to volunteer or help in other ways throughout the year! We are so grateful for supportive and involved families!

Parents: Would you be interested in volunteering at WJHS events and activities? We are looking for 5-6 parent volunteers to serve our students in the concession stand and game area during next Wednesday night's Halloween dance from 6-8pm. These two stations will be in the cafeteria. We are also looking for a volunteer or two to serve in our library during study hall on Wednesday and/or Friday afternoons from 2:15-2:47 so that students can come down during study hall to check out books. This would be a weekly commitment. If you are willing to serve in either of these capacities, and you have a background check on file, please email Mrs. Brown at cbrown@wcusd5.net. Please include which opportunity you'd like to volunteer for, your student's name, your name, and a phone number where you can be reached. Mrs. Brown will contact you to verify that you have been cleared to volunteer and to give you more details! Thank you for considering!
