ATTENTION SENIORS AND SENIOR PARENTS! 2022 Yearbook information is going out soon. You will receive a letter in the mail and should have received an email on Wednesday with the same information. The letter explains how to order yearbooks, senior ads and business ads. It also has a few deadlines. You will also see it below as well as a flyer from Clark's Studio. Seniors must have their picture taken at Clark's Studio for free to be included in the yearbook. Even if you had senior pictures taken elsewhere, you must have your picture taken at Clark's. This must be done by October 31st! Picture day is scheduled for October 21st. Seniors should plan on having their picture taken even if they aren't ordering. Lastly, for anyone that ordered a yearbook last year, we are expecting them to ship next week and will be available for pick-up at the school. There was a delay in shipping. Students that haven't already graduated will be given their copy during their first period class. Last year's seniors can pick their yearbook up in the high school office once they arrive. We apologize for the delay. If you have any questions, please email Mr. Matsook at matsook@wasd.school.

It's not easy being the best.  You need dedication, commitment, and perseverance.  Our very own Greyhound Band is a shining example.   Through scorching heat, heavy rain, and frigid snow, our band plays on.   Although band camp is nearing an end, the new year is upon us.  From 8AM - 10PM everyday, they practice until perfect. That's what it takes to be the best.  That's what it takes to be a Greyhound.
