On a rain soaked Wednesday Night our Freshmen and Sophomore girls competed in our 5th annual Powder Puff game.  Our Sophomore girls came away with an exciting 26-12 victory.  Thanks to James Messina, Ryan Bruno and Chrissy Bruno for coaching the competing teams.  This event is truly a school wide event as Ms. Cheryl Anderson, her Sports Marketing classes and the Business Departments at both campuses organize the event, design the uniforms and provide the publicity.  They also recruit the officials and coaches for this event.  Thanks also to all that helped with officiating and helped with the chains.  This was and enjoyable and fun evening for all.

O'Plaine All Student Assembly-Friday August 19, 2016

On Friday, August 19, 2016 we held an all student assembly in our stadium at the O'Plaine Campus. The goal of the assembly was to take an aerial photo of our students and staff forming the number 100 recognizing the start of our Centennial Celebration. Our staff and our students did an outstanding job getting lined up and creating a picture that will be memorable for our school and community! All appeared to have fun. We were able to end our assembly with Associate Principal Chuck Maurer leading everyone in singing Happy Birthday to Warren. It was a great way to kick off  this exciting Centennial celebration at WTHS!
