Interact club meeting will be Tuesday, Aug 30 @6 in the choir room. This meeting is for last years members only. We will make many important decisions including electing new members, picking our club t-shirt as well as picking the theme for the homecoming dance. Now let’s go to Jace with an explanation of what Interact is all about. Interact Club is a community service club. They do many projects throughout the year including nursing home visits, Special Olympics, projects with Riser Elementary, and more as well as decorating for WMHS Homecoming dance. If you would like to be a part of Interact Club, now is the time to apply. In order to get your
name on the ballot, you must bring a school supply to Mrs. Knox in room 3109. These supplies will be given to students in need at WMHS. When you bring a supply, your name will be added to the ballot. Being added to the ballot does not guarantee your
spot in the club. Current club members will choose 30-35 new members next week. If you are chosen as a new member, you will find out in September when you are presented your big "I" as a part of your initiation.  
 
If you would like to join Spanish Club, see Mrs. Ballance in room 2207 for information. You must be in Spanish 2 now or have completed 2 years of Spanish to join. The cost is $15 and includes a t-shirt.
