Dear Families of Whitehall City Schools,
It’s been a fast and furious first couple months of the new school year! Our students are working hard and are beginning to be recognized for their hard work both collectively and individually. Great things are happening and these are exciting times, to be sure!
- We are in the process of raising money for the installation of brand new seats in our auditorium at WYHS through our This Seat’s Taken seat campaign. For a donation of $100, you will receive an engraved plaque personalized with your message on the arm rest of a brand new seat. For more information, please visit http://www.wcsrams.org/ThisSeatsTaken.aspx.
- The early literacy campus is running as designed with students receiving plenty of individualized help in both the intervention groups and small group tutoring sessions. We are happy to partner with the Education Department at Capital University as they are providing additional supports for our young readers with their primary education students.
- Our award winning vocal and instrumental music programs are again some of the finest programs in Ohio. I would encourage you to attend one of the many performances scheduled throughout the fall and winter months.
I feel it’s important to maintain a level of transparency with our community members. This helps strengthen our school district’s relationship with our residents and stakeholders.
With that in mind, I’d like to personally invite you to attend our WCS State of the Schools event on Tuesday, February 13th, in the Walter Armes Learning Center Auditorium at WYHS. More details to come!
On a final note, I would like to issue a sincere ‘thank you’ to all parents and family members for your continued patience with our drop-off and pick-up procedures at the schools as we have rearranged our class schedule this year. I think we’re at a very good spot as far as getting children safely to and from school. Again, thank you for your cooperation during these times.
Brian D. Hamler
