March 17, 2016WHS administration and staff are concerned not only with the academic success of our students, but also with the social-emotional wellbeing of our students. In an effort to be as proactive as possible, we are announcing a new service available to WHS students called Text-a-Tip. Text-a-Tip (http://www.leadingefforts.org/text-a-tip/) is a text-communication app that is completely anonymous, operating 24 hours per day, 7 days a week. The system provides text-message service to a dedicated number, allowing the caller to receive an immediate response from a licensed mental health professional in complete anonymity.

February 4, 2016Woodstock District 200 presented its first D200 Technology Night on Wednesday, January 27, 2016 from 6:00 - 7:30 p.m. at Olson Elementary School. The evening focused on the district’s 1:1 technology initiative and the exciting new ways our students are learning. Presentations from the evening are now available for viewing.
September 29, 2015It is vital to WHS administration and staff that our students reach their full academic potential. We are, therefore, partnering with Equal Opportunity Schools to survey all students in 9th through 12th grades to aid in addressing individual student needs and in helping us identify students who have the potential to benefit from increased academic challenges, such as our AP program. Survey results will provide us with information about resources that will support not only academic success but also awareness about college and career readiness. Students will take the online survey during one of their PE classes from September 28, 2015, through October 15, 2015.
