Letters to Santa 2017

S​tudent Council sponsored Letters to Santa again this year.  This is a program run through Direct Effects Charity.  Each year, WTHS sponsors a school in Chicago.  This year’s school is Reilly School– and there were over 1,100 letters!  Here at the Almond Campus, we took in over 700 presents for children who might not receive any presents this year, beyond our donations.   Between both campuses, we were able to send close to 1,400 gifts!!

Blood Drive

Warren's PE staff once again, hosted the blood drive on Tuesday, November 22, 2016.

This time around, out of our 346 registrants, we had 304 donate Whole Blood. Since one Whole Blood donation can save up to 3 lives, the 304 units that were collected at this drive will potentially save the lives of 912 patients! This represents the most units collected since November, 2013 and was a huge help in increasing inventories.  The  generosity will help Chicagoland area friends, family and neighbors in need, including cancer patients, critically ill newborns, burn survivors, accident victims, transplant patients and many, many more who have illnesses requiring treatment with blood products. 

We are set for the next blood drive on Wednesday, February 8, 2017.

French Students Shadow Warren Students

Students From Arles, France were hosted by WTHS families from October 22-30, 2016. They come from the Lycée St. Charles.

The director and teacher chaperone, Katie Thornton and Roxane Mazingue got to meet our blue devil!

Students followed their hosts’ schedule one day and even helped students with French history in AP French.

Veteran's Day Celebration

Today, the Fine Arts Department  honoed our veterans, notably the members of our current staff at WTHS who have served and staff members who have family members who have proudly served our country. They honored them in a variety of ways in the main entrance of the Almond Campus:

  • This morning, the band and choir performed patriotic music near the entrance of the school as students walked in.
  • Staff members were invited to  take a selfie with a photo of a family member who served and those were displayed at the main entrance.
  • Our Digital Art students took 14” x 20” portraits of WTHS staff members who served in the armed forces, and those were displayed as well.
  •  Our 3-D and 2-D students painted banners and murals to celebrate and draw attention to our Veterans.

 This idea was started last year, and we hope this is a small step forward for WTHS to honor those who have served our country.
