One of the most uproariously funny musicals in recent years, URINETOWN is a hilarious tale of greed, corruption, love, and revolution in a time when water is worth its weight in gold. In a Gotham-like city, 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. Amid the people, a hero decides he's had enough, and plans a revolution to lead them all to freedom!

WHS MISSION STATEMENT

Westhill High School values learning because it promotes academic excellence, civic responsibility, and personal growth. Our community provides all students with opportunities to acquire, analyze, and apply knowledge.

WHS School Improvement Plan

CAPT & SBAC Testing

In May, we will administer the Smarter Balanced online assessment to juniors in place of the CAPT.

Testing will take place during the week of May 19-23 to maximize instructional time and consider the participation of juniors in AP testing scheduled for the first two weeks of May.

Additionally, please note that the science portion of the CAPT will be administered on March 25th to sophomores.

As a district, we will use what we learn to strengthen our efforts to prepare our students for the actual Smarter Balanced Assessment scheduled for Spring 2015.

For more information read Superintendent ​Dr Hamilton's letter.

Policy Reminder

A Reminder About Absences:
If your child is out of school, on their return please have them report to the main office from 7 to 7:30 in the morning and see Mr. Pereira. In addition, please have them bring in documentation.
 
A Reminder About Early Dismissal: 

If there is a need for your child to leave school early, please send in a note (including a morning telephone number to confirm dismissal) with your child. They will be issued a yellow dismissal pass from class and you can meet your child in the office. Students should report to the main office before the warning bell for Block 1 to get the dismissal approved. We are hoping to greatly decrease the classroom interruptions that occur when we do not follow this procedure.

Fit Club

Westhill Fitness CenterThe Westhill Fit Club meets every Monday, Tuesday and Thursday in the Fitness Center from 2:20-3:20.  
 
We have a state of the art fitness center that was funded by the Stamford Hospital Foundation through generous grants from the community.  Students are welcome to come as often as they like and are encouraged to bring a friend.  Bring water and a towel.  Certified staff will be available to help each student plan an individual fitness program to best meet their fitness related goals.
 
This is a free and fun way to get healthy, meet new people and get fit.  
 
Any questions contact Camille Quattrocchi at 203-977-4238.

Electronic Devices

There has been an ever increasing problem of students losing electronic devices (cell phones, iPods, etc) while at school. The Stamford Board of Education policy prohibits their use during the school day. Students who have them out and visible from their backpacks run the risk of having their device taken when the turn away or leave them unattended. There is also the potential for students to have their devices taken away if they are found to be using them during the school day. This problem can be greatly minimized if our students kept their devices away in the backpacks while in school. We appreciate everyone's reinforcing this message.

Parents of seniors!  It is time to recognize your senior in the yearbook.  Please consider purchasing an advertisement to show your senior just how proud you are in a personal page designed just for you.  Include memorable pictures and a heartfelt message to your graduate.  Please contact Yearbook for further information at: 203.968.9658 or at Westhill.ads@gmail.com.
