The Latest Principal’s Message: 1.9.20
Dear Parents and Students,
Wasatch will be holding an Open House for those interested in attending school here next year. The Open House will be from 6-8pm on January 15th. Please invite your family friends and neighbors. We would love to see and meet them on the 15th.
We’re excited to be putting together our board for next year! If you’d like to be a part of this great community of people, while serving our awesome students, faculty, and staff, please contact Sarah Plummer (email@example.com).
Congratulations to Anna Liu, Region 5 Award of Excellence winner in TWO Reflections categories: photography and film. Anna, you are amazing!
The Musical Production Class for our spring musical, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang will be starting on Monday and we’ll be giving the students a disclosure for you to sign along with your student. We are compiling the parent volunteer list and we’ll be sending out a Sign-Up Genius for positions that still need to be filled. We will have ALL CAST rehearsals Monday through Thursday through the month of January and Fridays 17th and 24th from 12:30-2:30 and then will increase into February and March. Please look at www.wjhfinearts.weebly.com for an up to date schedule. Each week we’ll send updated information in the weekly newsletter and posting it on the website and we’ll start sending out parent emails on a weekly basis starting next week. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you have questions in regards to the musical that you need an immediate response to. Please keep in mind you may want to hold off on questions until we get through the first week of the class and rehearsal as many questions will be answered. Thank you so much!
