During the first portion of the school year, the WHS Choirs have been singing about and thinking about the idea of community. We are thinking about the community that is our choir, our school, our city, our state, our nation, and our world. The songs featured at our Fall Concert are songs we sing as a community or are about the communities in which we live. A part of living in a community is helping others. In order to do that, the WHS Choirs will be holding a Community Baby Shower. Donations of diapers and wipes will be accepted between now and next Wednesday, October 18th. All donations will be given to The Community Space in Whitewater. Students, WUSD staff, and community members can drop off donations at the WHS Choir room or the WHS main office. We will continue the collection at our Fall Concert on Wednesday, October 18th when we will have boxes ready for donations at the concert. The concert will be held at Whitewater High School in the auditorium at 7:00 pm. Thank you in advance for any support you can give to this project. We truly live in a special place!
REMINDER: There is NO SCHOOL on Monday, October 9, for teacher in-service.

AP Exam Registration for 2023-24 School Year Taking the Advanced Placement exams is an important part of all AP courses. Scoring well on an AP exam can often earn students college credit, saving a significant amount on tuition. Evidence also shows that simply taking an AP exam has benefits for students. For the 2023-24 school year, students will register for AP exams directly through Whitewater High School and College Board. This year each AP exam costs $98. Whitewater High School recognizes the value in students taking AP exams and this year, is offering a $20 discount for any student taking more than one exam. The online exam registration window will open on Monday, September 18 and close on October 20, at 11:59 p.m. In order to register, students will complete a Google form indicating which AP exams they intend to take. The fee for the exam will then be added to a student’s Infinite Campus account. A minimum payment of $40 per exam is due no later than November 10, 2023 in order for exams to be ordered. The remaining balance for all exams must be paid no later than January 19, 2024. Payments can be made directly to Whitewater High School through check or credit card online through IC. For students who qualify for financial assistance, the corresponding exam fee will be adjusted prior to being uploaded to IC.
