    High School exams begin for WAAT students on December 9th.

Teachers will inform students on Monday of their exemptions. 1st and 2nd block exams will be completed on December 9th, and 3rd and 4th block exams will be completed on Monday, December 13th.

    Hello,

    This is Mrs. Cox, principal of WAAT. I am calling to share our weekly updates. 

    Thank you to all of the families who were able to attend our Homecoming Game against WECA. While we didn’t win, our students and staff worked hard. They had great sportsmanship, and I am proud of their efforts. 

    On Wednesday, November 10th at 6:00 p.m. we will have a Pathway Night for all of our ninth-grade students and parents. This event will help each family decide which program of study each ninth-grader will get their degree in from Wilson Community College. We hope that every family will make an effort to attend. Selecting the degree is a big decision. Having the correct information is the best way to make this decision. After this meeting, each family will schedule a meeting with Mrs. Cox and the Student Services Department to select the program of study. 

    Yearbooks are on sale for $28.50 and can be purchased online at ybpay.com. You will need our Yearbook ID Code which is 13618322.
