Hi folks… there will NOT be a work party on this coming Saturday, October 18. We have an all-day rental that will be utilizing the whole building, and it would be impractical to build and paint a set, while another show is going on. :)

There WILL be a work party on Sunday, October 19, 1 PM to 5 PM as usual.

To all new WLHS musicians and actors– Welcome! To all returning musicians and actors – Welcome Back! We are excited for the fourth annual performing arts department bar-be-que.  This year we are welcoming all Band, Orchestra, Choir and Thespian students and their families with an evening of food, fun and getting to know each other. This is a great chance to re-connect with friends and get charged up for this coming school year.  It all begins just outside the Performing Arts Building at 6:00 pm.

We will provide the burgers, hot dogs and all the fixings, as well as water and lemonade. To make this event a success, we are asking families to bring one of the following:


    A-H – side dish      I-R – Bag of chips      S-Z – dessert


At 7:00 PM, there will be a brief informational meeting for parents. We will share calendar events, volunteer opportunities, and answer questions for veterans and new parents alike.
