  • After school tutoring is now available for your child.  Teachers are recommending students for tutoring by using THIS FORM and filling in the top half of the form and sending the form home for the parent/guardian to fill out and return.  Tutoring is available for 1 hour on Tuesdays and Thursdays (3:30-4:30 PM.)  Bus transportation is provided based on the information submitted on the form.  We are asking that students who are recommended for tutoring commit to at least one day a week but may stay both days and continue in the tutoring program until their grade improves in the course. If you have questions, concerns, or feel your child would benefit from this program and they have not been recommended by their teacher, please contact Janice Grant or Stephanie Graves.

  • Cell Phones Do you have old cell phones just lying around?  Did you know that these cell phones can make a difference?  Bring your old, used, and unwanted cell phones to the main office and drop them off in the drop box.  They will be sent to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society where they will be recycled and the proceeds will benefit the LLS.  Why let that old phone collect dust when it could change a life?  Donate your old phones today!

  • Hey Senior Parents! Now is the time to purchase a baby ad for your graduate! Letters have been mailed to your address; however, the forms you need are also posted on the WHS website. Remember, we have strict deadlines that have to be followed in order for the yearbook to be produced and delivered on time. The date to have all materials and payment turned in to the main office of Williams High School is Friday, October 10th.  We cannot accept late ads because we cannot guarantee their inclusion in the yearbook. We are on an especially tight time frame this year; please understand that if your ad is not in the WHS office by Friday, October 10th at 3:30 p.m., we will not be able to include it in the 2015 Doe-Wah-Jack. If you have any questions, please email Ms. Lee (betsy_lee@abss.k12.nc.us). Thank you!  For more information, click HERE and for the checklist, click HERE.

  • Do you want your summer pictures in the yearbook? Well, bring them to Ms. Lee’s room (328) or email them to Ms. Lee (whose email can be found on the WHS website). Please send your pictures with the highest resolution possible. We can’t guarantee that all pictures can go in the book due to size and space restrictions, but we’d really like to include as many as possible! The pictures must be turned in by 3:30 p.m. on Wednesday, October 1st.
