Competitive Speech

 

All are welcome to attend our Celebrate Speech Night tonight at 7 PM in the Event Center.  A variety of performances will be given from our Large Group and Individual Events participants.  It should be a great night!

 


Karissa Walhof will represent Western at the IHSSA All State Speech Festival in Cedar Falls on Monday.  She performs at 11:30 on the campus of UNI.

 

Update from the Spiritual Life Coordinator:

 

Tuesday’s chapel was led by Mrs. Wilson.  She has established a tradition of sharing a children’s book with us during her chapels, and this year her very familiar story, “The Three Little Pigs” was a great tie-in to her challenge to all of us to build our lives on the solid rock of Jesus Christ.  On Thursday, our Faithpacks met, and for this month’s meeting, our goal was simple and fun: play games together. A variety of games were played (charades, pictionary, scattergories, and dodgeball just to name a few!) and it sounds like the students and teachers enjoyed their time together.  Continue to pray for many opportunities for our students and faculty to spend time together, build relationships, and grow in Christ together!

 


Please continue to pray for Mrs. Bartman.  She had surgery on Monday, and recovery will require her to rest at home for another week.  Please pray for continued healing and strength.

 

AFTER PROM

 

I know there are still several families who have not turned in the After prom Permission slip and payment. Please take care of that right away on Monday. Thank you from the committee

 

On the subject of Prom please read the following paragraph which is on page 34 of the Parent-Student Handbook:

 

JUNIOR-SENIOR BANQUET

 

You must be a junior or senior to attend the banquet.  Guests must also be a junior or senior, or older. Guests must be of the opposite gender and must be under 21 years old.  Guests must have no prior criminal record and must conform to the school dress policy.  Ultimate authority for approval of guests to the Junior-Senior Banquet is at the discretion of the administration and board of Western Christian High School.

 



 

And this also from Page 16 of the parent-student handbook:

 

No Freshmen or Sophomores will be excused the day of the Junior/Senior Banquet.

 



 

If you have any questions on either of these two rules, please contact Mr. Barkel or Mr. Harmsen. Thank you

 



 

SPRING SPORT PICTURES

 

I have taken all of the spring pictures except for the varsity boys soccer team picture, boys golf pictures - both team and individual, and the girls soccer team pictures. There were several kids missing yesterday so I didn't take those team pictures. I would love to have all orders in before we leave for spring break so I can work on that over break. Thank you! I will attach the order form to this email.

 



 

LUNCH MENU FOR NEXT WEEK:

 

Monday - Chicken Sandwich, Fries, corn, Bar

 

Tuesday - Softshell Taco, Tri-tater, Green Beans, Bar

GRANDPARENTS DAY FOR SENIORS AND THEIR GRANDPARENTS

 

This will be held on Tuesday, April 10. I will hand out the information to seniors on Monday and I will also email it home to the senior parents. Please be on the lookout for that. If you go for Sunday Dinner please ask them so you are ready to fill out the form and return it back to school by April 3. Thank you.
