Michelle Williams

Congratulations to Michelle Williams for her recent achievements!  She has been named as a National Achievement Scholarship finalist, and is one of only 1,300 African-American high school seniors in the nation who have been awarded this honor.  She has also been recognized to receive the Comcast Leaders and Achievers Scholarship.  She will be attending Washington University in St. Louis this fall.

Michelle is very active at Westbrook.  She has been president of the Key Club for two years and is also a member of Mu Alpha Theta, the National Honor Society, and the Beta Club.  She volunteers with her church, Special Olympics, and the Salvation Army.  In her spare time she enjoys dance, piano, reading, writing, studying Korean language and culture, and photography.

We’re proud of you, Michelle!


2015-2016 SCHOOL CALENDAR

The board recently adopted the 2015-2016 School Calendar.  Please note that you have an extra “gift” of a full week off during the month of October.  This week is between the two grading periods for the semester.  It is mainly due to the fact that Memorial Day is not until May 30 so we could go further into the month of May next year.  Please don’t think this will happen every year.  Because we have this extra week, students in 7th-12th grades will not be excused for “family trips” at other times during the school year.  Please plan appropriately.

DRESS CODE FOR FORMAL DANCES

To simplify the process of approving dances for the prom and Christmas dance, we have developed a pictorial dress code for high school girls.  This code has been viewed by all of the high school girls with explanations given.  All male students who will be bringing dates from other schools must get a form from the office to be signed by his date stating that this code has been viewed and followed.  Thanks for your cooperation in leading our girls to maintain their testimony through their dress.

It’s re-enrollment time at WCS! Please make sure to re-enroll your student during priority enrollment for in-house families.  Enrollment will open to the public on April 13.   Many of our Westbrook classes are currently closed with very little room for new students.  Do not delay your re-enrollment and lose your student’s spot in the class.
