Scrip = $$$ Towards Your Students Account

It may seem early to think about, but Mother’s Day is May 11. Wouldn’t your mom be proud to know that you wisely got her something wonderful AND saved some money at the same time? Whether you think she (or you) would love a day at the spa, an evening at a favorite restaurant, or a new outfit, there is a scrip card for it.

Remember rebates earned through the Scrip program are credited to your student’s account and can be used to pay for any WHEUPA expenses such as the upcoming banquet or fall contributions. Several families have earned enough this year to cover next year’s fall fees.

If you haven’t signed up for PrestoPay, now might be the time to reconsider. With PrestoPay you can reload cards and purchase ScripNow any time you want and print it at home in minutes. If you have any question about our Scrip program or PrestoPay, you can find detailed explanations on the Scrip web page by clicking here or contact Brenda Lemley at wheupascrip@yahoo.com.

Scrip is an optional WHEUPA fundraiser.  Net proceeds from a family’s order are credited to that student’s account. Thank you for your support to West High Entertainment Unit!

42nd Annual Spirit Day

Many Thanks to all those who volunteered at Spirit Day this weekend.  Some parents even completed extra shifts to fill unmet needs.  We greatly appreciate you support.  WHS hosted nearly 2500 performers and guests.  It was quite a party.  Congratulations to Sue Ericksen and the Drill/Hip Hop teams for this fantastic competition.

Here is a sample video of the Color Guards performance. More videos can be found on YouTube by clicking here. To view photos of Spirit Day click here to visit the Photo Gallery. Parents, please let us know if you have photos to contribute to the web site too.

WHEU has photo galleries of past and present contributions of our students in action. A NEW Flickr photo gallery has now been set up for the 2013-2014 school year. We invite anyone who has photos and videos of our students to contribute to the gallery so we can share. Visit the WHEU Multimedia page for links and contribution details and share with your family and friends around the world so they can enjoy our student performances.
