"One Falcon, One Family"

Public School Volunteer Week!
Many thanks to Woodinville's 
outstanding volunteers!
Woodinville High School is incredibly fortunate to have so many parents, guardians, and community volunteers who are making a difference in the lives of our students. Every day, their volunteerism contributes to the success of our Learning Community through their support of a wide variety of classes, activities, and events.

This week, April 17 – 21, is Public School Volunteer Week and we are honored to recognize and thank each and every volunteer, named and unnamed, who has generously given their time, creativity, and energy in support of our kids! 

A shout out to some of this year’s amazing volunteers!
Our wonderful PTSA continued to go above and beyond this year providing valuable opportunities and services both inside and outside of the classroom:

Our PTSA Executive Board: Co-Presidents Francine Sullivan and Shannon Dias, Co-Vice Presidents Candace Wenzel and Kim Norris, Treasurer Beth Grothen, and Secretary Amy Flinn and the Board of Directors/Committee Chairs: Debi Niemi and Lynn Smith (Emergency Prep), Kim Norris (Grants), Kelly Gentry and Anne Alecci (Hospitality), Amy Cast (Legislative), Austina DeBonte (HiCap), Krista Hines (Membership), Denise Need (Special Education), Kelly Locke (NSD Foundation), Jasmine Lee (Reflections), Amber Wendover (Scholarships), Seana Kromann and Theresa Shabro (Staff Appreciation), Audrey Kozel (Volunteer Coordinator and Communications), Amy Cast (Students Directory) and Allison Torgesen and Rob Larson (Website), deserve our praise and thanks for serving countless hours, providing outstanding support of our students and staff, and for keeping our PTSA invigorated with new ideas, while continuing to celebrate Falcon traditions we all enjoy. Thanks to all those named and unnamed who provided fabulous staff appreciation treats and lunches, as well! Our staff has felt valued and thanked! 

Main Office/Counseling Office:
  • Thank you to our wonderful Copy Brigade volunteers. All the staff at WHS truly appreciate the invaluable services you have provided through our in-house printing program! This includes the countless copies made and laminating projects supported, as well as organizing our Main Office Work Room and providing office support to numerous other projects. These ladies are amazing and we appreciate all of them greatly! Thank you to Stephanie Hennessy, Lynn Smith, Breane Brix, Karen Griffith, Jennifer Samdal, Wendy Armour, and Mark Davis!
  • THANK YOU SO MUCH to Lynn Smith, Debi Niemi, and Stephanie Hennessy who spent several hours and days organizing and preparing all the registration packets for next year! This would not have been able to happen without all of your wonderful help! 😊

WHS Computer Science Program:
  • Rick Len has been an invaluable volunteer in Intro to Computer Science for many years. He brings his real-world industry experience into the classroom to help students write code. They know that the advice he gives draws from decades of lived experience. We want to express our sincere gratitude for all the hours Rick has spent squashing bugs in the 221 computer lab.
    ~ Paul Mulvaney
  • Mary Templeman-Smith is an outstanding volunteer in our classroom! She comes in once or twice a week to work with students individually or in groups on a variety of invaluable skills. Mary is a speech language pathologist and supports students in reaching their communication goals, often through fun and engaging learning experiences like games! When not working with students, Mary helps prepare materials and projects, cleans around the classroom, and has even baked cookies! There is not much she doesn't do. Mary is absolutely amazing!
    ~ Katherine Smith
Speech and Debate Team:
  • The Speech and Debate Club would not be able to exist and compete without the help of parent, staff, and student volunteers. For each tournament, we are expected to bring judges to tournaments, and if we don't have enough judges to cover our entries, we cannot compete. The volunteers that helped us this season gave up hours of their time on weekends to help us, and for that they deserve to be recognized. Thank you to everyone who helped judge this season!

Julie's main purpose in all of this is to ensure that FAB scholarships continue to be properly funded. She is truly driven by a selfless desire to support our student-athletes.

Theatre Tickets - Spring Play: Rumors
WHS Spring Play: Rumors,
 April 26-29, 7:00p

Woodinville High School Theatre Company presents Rumors - A Comedy by playwright Neil Simon! Rumors is a side-splitting farce! To quote the playwright himself, “This play has no socially redeeming qualities, but you will laugh the whole way through!” Rumors is set in a large, tastefully appointed townhouse, where a group of four affluent couples have all been invited to the 10th wedding anniversary dinner party for the Deputy Mayor of New York, Charley Brock, and his wife Myra. Upon arrival, the first guests discover the hostess is missing, the servants have vanished, and the host has shot himself through the earlobe. Though it is only a flesh wound, the self-inflicted injury sets off a series of comic complications as the guests try to conceal the truth of the events from each other, the local police, and the media. As the confusion and miscommunications mount, the evening spins off into classic farcical hilarity.  

Due to its adult content (prolific adult language and innuendo), this show is not recommended for audiences under 14 years old, or playgoers who are sensitive to swearing. See the press release for further details!

Performances are April 26-29, 7:00p at the Woodinville High School Theatre.

Message from your WHS Counselors

Spring, Seniors, and SBAC, oh my!
We are excited to see the return of sunshine and warmer weather!  While we welcome all that spring brings, these elements are not always helpful, especially for seniors who are fighting with symptoms of Senioritis or for students struggling with school avoidance. Graduation and the end of the school year are right around the corner, and we encourage students to stay the course. Connecting with teachers, attending classes on a regular basis, and practicing those strong student skills are strategies needed now more than ever. 

Spring is also the time for SBAC and AP testing. Students might feel an increased amount of stress as they prepare to do their best on these tests. We encourage students to be well rested, practicing healthy habits (i.e.: eating and exercising) and utilizing strategies to minimize their stress (i.e.: listening to music, going for a walk, talking with friends/family/counselors). This is an exciting time to shine and celebrate knowledge! 

College Planning Resources: Juniors, spring is a great time to start planning for life after high school. While we don't expect you to have your plans set in stone, we do encourage you to start thinking about what your path might look like after graduation.
  • Check out our website for college planning resources.
  • Log into your Naviance account to utilize the Super-Match College Search engine to research colleges.
  • Check out some college campuses (in person or virtually:
  • Use Naviance to organize colleges you're interested in using the "Colleges I am Thinking About" tool.
  • Research college admission requirements, for example: will you need to ask a teacher to write a letter of recommendation for you? 
  • While some colleges are waiving the testing expectation for admission, you still may want to sign up to take the ACT or SAT.
  • Counselors are looking forward to collaborating more with you around the college admission process this spring, but do not hesitate to reach out with any questions in the meantime!
We hope that all our Falcon students and their families enjoyed a peaceful and relaxing spring break! Thank you for the opportunity to work with you, it's going to be a great rest of the school year!

C.P. & Dorothy Johnson Humanitarian Award

The award was established in honor of two educators who dedicated their lives to improving the lives of all children in our community. As part of this honor, we recognize two students from each school who display the characteristics of a humanitarian in their school and community.

Recommendations for the award are made by faculty and staff at WHS and we had many nominations submitted.
Congratulations to the two winners of this award who will be recognized at a district celebration on May 18th!
  • Emma McKay, 12th grade
  • Ethan Mejia, 10th grade
Here is a little of what teacher nominators had to say about Emma and Ethan.

Emma is an advocate, not just for people with disabilities, but for all people. She goes above and beyond each day to make her classmates feel seen, heard, and valued. Even when it means more work for her, Emma will happily partner with students who struggle academically—students her classmates don't want to work with. She is a kind, joyful presence, and I know she will leave this world better than she found it.

Ethan is kind to everyone, is always ensuring that everyone is included and puts other people’s needs before his own. In class, if a student at his table has arrived late or missed, he is thoughtful and always volunteers to send them what they missed or help them. He also volunteered for a daily role to help kids with disabilities get to their bus. It is so refreshing to see a young man with these attributes!

  • Naturally, if a teacher requests a student to attend class outside of the testing window, the student should honor that request (this could be due to academic progress). 
  • Parents/guardians do not need to call to excuse AP Exam testing. 
    • The Attendance Office will be provided with a list of students who are testing and who do not show up for testing. 
  • Students that do not return to classes after their exam or do not attend classes prior to their exam, the absence will be marked as school-related. 
  • Testing students who do attend classes must sign in and out at the Attendance Office. 
    • Parents/Guardians of testing students who do choose to attend classes on their testing day must email the Attendance Office (or their absence will continue to be marked as school-related).

From the WHS Health Room

COVID Updates: 

The Washington State Department of Health has provided new guidance for schools this fall. Please review the Symptom and Exposure Flowchart for Schools and learn about the Northshore School District's COVID information on our Health Room website so you are prepared for the school year.  You'll find details about what to do if your child has:
  • Symptoms,
  • If your child is exposed to COVID,
  • What kind of test your child should have,
  • What to do if your child tests positive, and
  • How you will be notified of COVID cases at school.

Other Illnesses: 

To avoid the spread of illness other than COVID, follow these guidelines when deciding whether your child is healthy enough for school.  In addition to the COVID guidelines, if your child has any of the symptoms below, please keep him/her at home until the symptoms subside: 
  • APPEARANCE/BEHAVIOR: unusually tired, difficult to wake, pale, skin rash, lack of appetite; these are often signs of underlying illness.
  • FEVER: temperature of 100 degrees or higher in the past 24 hours
  • VOMITING/DIARRHEA: within the past 24 hours.
  • RASH: Any rash of unknown cause should be considered contagious. Please have your child examined by a health care provider to determine the cause and communicability of the rash before sending him/her to school. The school may require a note from the health care provider stating that the rash is not contagious.
  • Other: For other specific diseases or health difficulties it is always a good idea to contact the school nurse. We are happy to share information and resources anytime! 

Students must be fever-free without fever reducing medication and other symptoms improving before returning to school. 

Medications at School:

If your student will be taking any medication at school, please contact the school nurse.  The Northshore School District recommends that medication be taken at home whenever possible.  We recognize, however, that in some cases it is essential that medication be administered during the school day. Learn about the procedures for the handling of ALL medications in the schools, as well as find the authorization form, on our Health Room website.

Please do not put any kind of medicine, including Tylenol, vitamins, and cough drops in your child's lunch box, backpack or pockets.  Unidentified medicine can never be given at school.  

Please feel free to contact us at any time to discuss health concerns about your student.

Reduced or Waived Fees 2022-23

Available by logging into ParentVue and completing the steps in the Student Information Updates module

***Step-by-step instructions on how to submit the consent form in ParentVUE can be found in .pdf HERE.  An electronic step-by-step guide is also available on the district website.***

Please note: Part of the process when completing the consent form is families will first verify their information (address, phone, emergency contacts, etc.). The Consent form will appear after the race and preferred language questions. Parents/Guardians need to go through each page and verify information before reaching the consent form. The ParentVUE app on cell phones looks nearly identical to the computer version of ParentVUE for completing the online consent form.

If you qualify for free or reduced price meals, also apply for reduced or waived extra-curricular school fees pursuant to House Bill 1660 (that you may be eligible for) by completing that section of the Student Information Updates in ParentVue* on or after August 15 (see House Bill 1660 details below). 

Completing the fee waiver form in ParentVUE* will allow your student's free and reduced status to be shared with those administering extra-curricular activities at our school or within the district, thus being able to waive or reduce certain fees. 

Consent must be given each school year and does not carry forward from last school year. Instructions on how to submit the consent form in ParentVUE can be found on the district website.

Once the Consent is submitted through the Student Information Updates portal in ParentVUE, it takes a minimum of 24 hours for the waived fees to show up in TouchBase.

Visit the District website to learn how to apply for free or reduced price meals.
