The latest issue of WHHS newspaper The Rostrum is out.

New student registration sessions are this summer at Molloy School. It is highly recommended that new students register over the summer, and not on the first day of school or later. Students who register on the first day of school or later cannot begin classes that same day. Please pass on this information to anyone who may need it. Click here for more information.

This year's summer reading theme is "Every Hero Has a Story." Students received summer reading guides with book recommendations based on grade level. Click here for a flyer detailing special public library events for summer break.

WHHS students are encouraged to tweet what they're reading to  #whhssummerread and to find recommendations from the WHHS Library Media Center on this blog. Everyone in the WHHS community is also encouraged to read "This I Believe" as part of the "One book. One community." campaign. Click here for details.
The Class of 2015, as well as school and city officials, wore ribbons in remembrance of classmate Alejandro Zitlalpopoca, who passed away last fall. His family also accepted his diploma at the ceremony.

Journalist Meredith Vieira visits Mackrille
Mackrille Elementary School was very excited to welcome journalist Meredith Vieira for a June 16 visit. Ms. Vieira was Mackrille's guest reader for June as part of the school's reading program and read "Wherever You Go" to the entire school community. Students also got a chance to ask her about her work, favorite books (the "Eloise" series), favorite subject in school (English) and what it's like to be on TV (she was one of the original members of "The View" panel, co-hosted "The Today Show," hosted "Who Wants to be a Millionaire," and now has her own show, "The Meredith Vieira Show"). Thanks again to Ms. Vieira for visiting our school!
