Student Involvement

  • Student Diversity Retreats

    Beginning with the 2017-18 school year, WTHS started facilitating retreats for students focused on awareness and individual growth related to diversity and inclusion issues.  These all-day retreats have occurred on non-attendance days and have provided for an opportunity for students to learn about historical perspectives and how they impact our community and world today. Our staff, administration and volunteer parents have helped to support and facilitate these events alongside Mr. Moreano and B.R.I.D.G.E.S.
