Thanks to everyone for your patience and understanding regarding our O’Plaine closures on Monday (11/28) and Tuesday (11/29) due to the water main break on Grand and subsequent boil order.  We are happy that as of midday on Tuesday, the boil order was lifted and we anticipate school open at both campuses on Wednesday (11/30).

We are very exciting to be hosting 8th grade student and parent nights at O’Plaine on Tuesday and Wednesday evening…looking forward to meeting the Class of 2021!

Thanks to all of our students, staff and alumni for incredible turnouts at all of our games, the school assemblies, the parade and student dance on Saturday evening.  The Centennial theme of Homecoming certainly helped to provide a sense of community for all past, present and future Blue Devils!  Having a successful Homecoming week also sets a great tone for the remainder of the year and provides for tremendous spirit at WTHS! 
Make sure you don’t miss our Fall WTHS Theatre production of Over the River and Through the Woods playing at our Almond Black Box on October 6-8. Our young actors and actresses have been working hard to kick off our 2016-17 Warren Theatre program.

Go Devils!!

A special thanks to our Spanish National Honor Society for hosting their annual Culture Fest this week.  The students had a very high level of excitement about the games, dancing, and of course authentic food. Our WTHS Spanish NHS students always put on activities that are second to none, and Ms. TaylorBoehm provides extraordinary leadership for this WTHS club!


SPIRIT WEEK AND HOMECOMING ARE NEXT WEEK, and we are so excited to be celebrating our 2016 Homecoming with a Through the Decades theme. Thanks to Mrs. Lainio, Mr. Karnstedt and all of our Student Council members for all the work they put in to prepare for what will certainly be a great week.

Thanks to Six Flags for your great hospitality in allowing WTHS to host our first ever exclusive event at Great America on Saturday.  The weather turned out absolutely perfect, and all those that attended enjoyed a fantastic day of fun with family and friends on the coasters and other rides.  Many people stopped by our Centennial Traveling Museum loved to look at the pictures reflect on the many great memories at WTHS.
A special thanks to the Gurnee District 56 Band students who kicked the day off with a wonderful performance. The hour of music they shared was tremendous, and we cannot wait until these fine young musicians are Blue Devils!  Also, a special shout out to our Giggles & Bits improve troupe who put on three shows, each one unique, for the entertainment of park guests.
Homecoming is quickly approaching, and we are so excited to be celebrating our 2016 Homecoming with a Through the Decades theme. Our Centennial Homecoming Festivities begin September 26th and run through October 1st…check out all there events at the WTHS Centennial pages!

Thanks to the very large number of parents and guardians who were able to make it to Open House at the Almond Campus this past Thursday.  Open House hopefully provided parents with information to help their children be successful this year in their courses. It also demonstrated the ongoing teamwork that is necessary between home and school to help students maximize their growth and achievement!
The SAT informational session that took place for junior parents before the Almond Open House was packed, indicating the interest and support parents have regarding college entrance tests.  Our current class of juniors are fortunate in that the SAT and ACT will both be free this year to juniors, as students will have both test scores to select from as they do some college application pre-planning next summer.
I look forward to seeing many of our 9th and 10th grade students’ parents at O’Plaine Open House on September 1st!
