Parent Groups PDF Print E-mail

The Parent Groups (Stewart Boosters, Lincoln PTG, JH PIE Team and WHS PTO) look out for our schools by helping get supplies and materials. When the WHS PTO was formed, they coordinated all four Parent Groups to split the membership cost to an organization called Naeir which allows members to obtain new, free products that have been donated. Individual parents from the Parent Groups volunteer to go to Galesburg, IL to pick up our orders to avoid the S&H charges. This is all volunteer work and has no cost to the district. This teamwork allows each school to get lots of supplies and materials, while splitting a membership within our school district. Although it's a huge undertaking to coordinate orders, sort orders, etc; it is well worth the effort. The program is working well, money is being saved and the Parent Groups supply our schools with lots of great supplies and materials. Pictured here shows a recent shipment from Naeir being sorted out for distribution to the individual schools. Thank you Parent Groups!

Note to: Parent/Guardian(s) of HS Juniors PDF Print E-mail

Academically, the junior year is a perfect time to evaluate student preparedness for college courses. We would like to offer JUNIORS the opportunity to evaluate their skills by taking the COMPASS® exam at the Washington Kirkwood Center before the school year ends. This exam is free of charge. Students will need their social security number to take the exam. Questions about social security numbers can be directed to the Washington Kirkwood Center at 653-4655.


We will provide school transportation during the school day to take the COMPASS® exam. It is a 90-minute computer-adaptive college placement test which helps to evaluate students' skill levels in reading, writing, and math, place students in appropriate courses, and connect them to the resources they need to achieve academic success. Students may sign up in the counseling office for one of the testing times offered from May 12-25, 2011 (8:20-9:50, 9:50-11:20, 11:20-12:40, 1:20-2:50, 3:00-4:30). If students would like to prepare for the exam, ACT provides a COMPASS® Prep at this website: http://www.act.org/compass/sample/index.html. Students may also take the exam during the summer by calling the Washington Kirkwood Center (653-4655). If you have questions, please contact the HS Counseling Office at 653-4245.
