WHHHS Update

Posted on: January 22, 2021

We would like to thank all of you for your continued support. This has been a year full of challenges, and your support through all the requirements, protocols and quarantines has been fantastic. We were able to stay face-to-face with students for all but one week of the entire first semester. This was only possible because of our great staff, students, parents, and community. We would like to take a moment to tell you how proud we are of our teachers and staff for their outstanding work during this difficult time. Our transition back to school after holiday break has been very smooth. With the Governor’s change in quarantine requirements concerning classrooms, we are able to substantially reduce the number of students who need to be quarantined due to close contact. We continue to be vigilant with our COVID protocols, such as masks, temperature checks and sanitizing classrooms and common areas. We look forward to watching the success of our students and finishing the year strong.

Junior ACT Testing

On Tuesday, February 23rd, all of our 11th grade students will report to the high school at the regular start time to take the ACT. Freshmen, sophomores, and seniors will stay home on a remote day and will be responsible for lessons their teachers will prepare in advance and put onto Teams and OneNote. Freshmen, sophomores and seniors will not need to log into Teams Chat on February 23rd, as our teachers will be administering the ACT and will not be available for live discussions. Our teachers will go over remote day information with students before the 23rd.

Ohio offers the ACT (American College Test) one time for free. The ACT score is used by colleges as a part of their acceptance process. Students can take the test before and after this, but at a cost to them. This is a great opportunity for all our juniors, even if they are not planning to go to college after high school. This ACT score will be placed on our student’s transcript and can be used at a later date if they choose to apply for college admittance in the future.

If your child is a junior and a virtual student or Oaks student, he/she will need to report to the high school on February 23rd to take the ACT. It cannot be administered virtually and must be monitored by a trained test administrator.

If you have any questions about the ACT, feel free to contact Mrs. Connie Acra at 513-367-4169, extension 8432.

MAP Testing

We will be administering MAP assessments to all our freshmen and sophomores in Math and English classes starting this Monday, January 25th. The MAP assessment is our best data point of the year to check in on our students and see changes and supports that need to happen in the classroom. Parents can help us by encouraging their child to do his/her best on these assessments.

Shower with Kindness Drive

HOSA, Student Council, and Student Leadership are teaming up to sponsor a collection drive next week to support Heart House Inc.  This is a non-profit organization, who’s vision is to uplift the dignity of all persons, to provide temporary housing and help homeless persons re-enter society as productive citizens. They house individuals and families that are in need of a temporary home.  They work with families to get back on their feet and we are happy we are able to donate items to help with their mission.  

We encourage students to bring in personal care items to their first bell classes next week, Jan. 25-29. 

All items must be new and can include personal hygiene items such as toothbrushes, toothpaste, floss, mouthwash, chap stick, socks, deodorant, shampoo, soap, hand sanitizer, combs, band aids, antibiotic ointment, and wet wipes.

The top five classes that bring in the most items per student will earn donuts.  In addition, the top two classes will also earn a pizza party.
