Final Weekend!
WHS Winter Musical: Urinetown, Feb 8-10, 7p

Woodinville High School Theatre Company presents the Tony award-winning musical Urinetown with music & lyrics by Mark Hollmann Book & Lyrics by Greg Kotis to the WHS Theater stage!

Inspired by the works of Bertolt Brecht and Kurt Weill, Urinetown is a hilarious musical satire of the legal system, corporate capitalism, social class, and musical theatre itself. This show is inventive, clever, and silly, while also delivering thought-provoking messages about the consequences of societal decisions and the unintended outcomes when the little guy stands up against the powers that be.

Described as “hilariously funny and touchingly honest,” the musical is set in a Gotham-like city, where a terrible water shortage - caused by a 20-year drought - has led to a government-enforced ban on private toilets. The citizens must use public amenities, regulated by a single malevolent company that profits by charging admission for one of humanity's most basic needs - a premise that should be ridiculous, but has a spooky ring of truth to it. From amid the downtrodden citizens, a hero decides he's had enough, and plans a revolution to lead them all to freedom! See the press release for further details!

Performances are February 8-10, 7:00p at the Woodinville High School Theatre.

Counselor's Corner
Hey Falcons!

2nd Semester Schedules Confirmed:
Counselors have enjoyed working with students to prepare for 2nd semester. We have completed schedule changes and are excited by the growth shown by our learners. 

Historically, we see a shift in how students approach 2nd semester, as the “bumps” of 1st semester begin to smooth out. By 2nd semester, students usually feel more comfortable talking with teachers and understanding the ebb and flow of managing homework and testing. Second semester is the time for students to continue their self advocacy skills and embrace their role as an engaged learner. As always, we encourage students to reach out if they need support!

Registration begins next week!
Counselors look forward to visiting our feeder middle schools (TMS/LMS) next week to present to our future Falcons! WHS students will receive their registration forms on Tuesday, February 13th and are encouraged to work with their families to plan for next year. Additional informational registration materials are available on the website. Complete your registration to the best of your ability and when counselors start our 1:1 meetings with all 9th-11th graders during the month of March, we'll review classes, ensure students are on track for graduation, and to discuss post secondary plans. We LOVE having this opportunity to meet with each of our students!

We See You, Seniors!
We enjoy having our Senior students pop into our offices to share their college admission updates and statuses and to discuss their plans for life after graduation. Counselors are busy submitting final touches on college and scholarship applications. Mid-Year reports are being sent and we are rounding the corner of the application season. Families, please note that this can be a stressful time for Seniors, as the unknown (and the known) can be overwhelming. It is a good time to check-in with your Senior to see how they are doing and to encourage them to keep up their energy as they enter their FINAL semester of their high school career. 

Happy Valentine's Day!

Lady Falcons Bring Home the Win at 1/25 and 2/1 Gymnastics Meet

On January 25th, our Lady Falcons Gymnastics team celebrated our seniors at the last home gymnastics meet of the ‘23/’24 season. They competed against Mt Si and Lake Washington.  It was definitely a night to remember between their exhilarating performance along with the touching sentiments directed to our Seniors Rachel Minter, Piper Brush, Sarah Ruana, Ava Long, Emily Brouwers, and Lauren Kok. We wish our Seniors the best as they get ready to embark upon the world next year – “oh, the places they’ll go” – and we know they’ll remember their experience on the WHS Gymnastics team fondly. Team WHS continued to dominate at the following week’s meet at Sammamish, and once again they earned top spots in all four events as well as the all-around. Come watch the district championships on Saturday February 10th at 3pm at Skyline HS. Go Falcons!

We are all very excited for this new opportunity. We are relying on community support to get it up and running and help make it a success! 

We are accepting all non-perishable foods, water, and toiletries. We have a specific need for foods that our students can prepare independently as well as beans, rice, and tortillas. You can find a wish list items here.

FAFSA/WASFA Information
If your student is planning to pursue a certificate program, job training, apprenticeships, or college (2-year, 4-year, trade school, technical school etc.) after high school, they may qualify for financial aid! Even if you think your family may make too much, please plan to apply for financial aid through the FAFSA or WAFSA.

The FAFSA is currently in their "soft launch" phase. Do not panic if the site is down. This is a new process for everyone this year and colleges will have to accommodate this new timeline.

Remember, you can also apply for the WASFA account on the Washington Student Achievement Council website if you’re ineligible to use FAFSA (Take a questionnaire on the link to see if the WASFA is a good fit for you).

Remember to utilize all the resources here to help you fill out the FAFSA:
Please have your student reach out to your counselor if you have any questions! It is a confusing process but we can get through this together!
