WCHS Needs Your Help
WCHS received $25,000 last fall from the America Farmers Grow Rural Education Program sponsored by Monsanto for the 2014-15 school year. To be able to apply for this grant of $10,000 to $25,000 to enhance math and science education, the district must be nominated by a local farmer. Webster County has the opportunity to apply for this grant again for the 2015-16 school year, but we need your help. Farmers can go online and nominate Webster County Schools.

NEW MESSAGING SYSTEM
Webster Schools will be changing our messaging system starting in January 2015. This will allow student and parents to receive information(including school closings, delays, etc.) At this time we are asking parents and guardians to update their phone numbers and email addresses. If you wish to receive text messages or emails please contact the school to update your information.
On the 5th, 15th, and 25th of every month all students and staff are encouraged to wear maroon clothing in support of the
Webster County School System.
WC "All Day, Every Day" Attendance Initiative
A recent study shows that students who miss more school than their peers consistently score lower on standardized tests, regardless of their age, demographic group or where they live. Improving student attendance is an essential, cost-effective but often overlooked strategy for school improvement, closing achievement gaps and ensuring all our students are on-track to learn and succeed.
