The WHS Portfolio Committee is seeking community members to be a part of the listening audiences on Wednesday, May 24, 4:00 - 7:00 p.m. We are hoping for at least 15 Whitewater Community members to participate. Community members willing to attend the presentations can email lmoll@wwusd.org or call 262-472-8203 to sign up by Friday, April 28. Members of the Whitewater High School Class of 2023 are currently preparing for the annual Portfolio Event which will be held on Wednesday, May 24, 4:00-7:00 p.m. at the high school. This event for seniors allows them to showcase their academic achievements, celebrate their accomplishments, and share their postsecondary career and academic plans before graduation. To make the presentations more meaningful, students present to an audience of WHS staff members and members of the community along with family and friends who are invited to attend. Students present examples of their best work in core academic and elective areas, share 2 or more examples of their involvement in activities in and outside of school, or work experiences, and at least one service activity that had special significance. Students then describe their future career & educational plans and the pathway they have chosen to accomplish their career goals. Graduates end their presentation by summarizing the most important learning experiences they’ve had in high school and how they hope to use their knowledge and skills to become a productive and responsible member of society.

CHANGE TO ACADEMIC CALENDAR: The WUSD School Board approved modifying the current academic calendar to make Monday, March 13, a regular day of school for students.  The day was originally planned as a teacher professional development day, but will now be used to make up for last week’s snow day. This will prevent us from needing to add another day to the end of the school year in June. We appreciate the understanding and flexibility of our families as we make this change.

Dear WUSD Families and Greater WUSD Community, This is a day of sadness and grieving over the loss of one of our own, Ricardo (Ricky) Lopez-Navejas Jr., a sophomore at Whitewater High School (WHS). Ricky was a member of the WHS basketball program. The Lopez-Navejas family has requested that tonight's home basketball game (Senior night vs. Evansville) be played in honor of Ricky. Therefore, we will be holding a moment of silence at the beginning of each of the games to honor Ricky. We welcome members of the school community to come and show support to the family. Additionally, we will sponsor a collection with the proceeds going to the Lopez-Navejas family. Please help us to keep the family and our school community in your thoughts. Ricky will forever be Whippet! #TheWhippetWay #1Family

Beginning in the 2023-2024 school year, Whitewater High School students will be able to get a jump start on earning college credits thanks to a new series of transcripted courses available through Gateway Technical College. The partnership will allow students to take college-level classes on early childhood education, introduction to business, software academy, advanced automotive care, and enterprise manufacturing. The WUSD School Board approved the courses at its December 19 meeting. “We are thrilled to engage in this partnership with Gateway Technical College and give our students the opportunity to earn both high school and college credit without leaving Whitewater High School,” said Dr. Caroline Pate-Hefty, Superintendent. “These programs will help students reduce the cost of their college education and give them the skills necessary to enter high-demand jobs shortly after graduation.” Through the one-semester Foundations of Early Childhood, students explore key concepts in child guidance, discipline, lesson planning, and fostering creativity. They also hear from guest speakers and observe children in a daycare setting. Intro to Business introduces students to various business topics and other high school business course offerings, such as Accounting, Business Law, Entrepreneurship, Personal Finance, and Sales & Marketing. In Software Academy students will have the opportunity to earn the Microsoft Office Specialist (MOS) certification, which is globally recognized for demonstrating Microsoft Office skills and meeting the workplace demand for qualified employees. Also available is Health, Safety, and Nutrition, another early childhood-focused course that includes various training sessions that allow students to become state certified as assistant childcare teachers. Advanced Auto is a full-year course that familiarizes students with the various systems of motor vehicles and includes ASC certifications for students who want to pursue automotive-related careers. The one-semester Manufacturing Enterprise class enables students to research, design, build, market and sell products, with the ultimate goal of making a profit. This includes quoting jobs, ordering materials, building products, quality control, and marketing. The transcripted classes will be taught by certified high school teachers, with students earning high school and college credits concurrently.
