Senior Sail Captains Needed:  Warrior Community, Each year, the Senior Class experiences Senior Sailabration.  An all night lock in that students regularly reference is the highlight of their high school career.  This event is always chaired by parent volunteers who coordinate and lead the efforts of hosting this event.  Next year's Senior Sail event is in need of two Co-Chairs to help this ship set sail.  If sailing this ship peaks your interest, please reach out to Jason Schmidtgall, Asst. Principal at WV by emailing him at jason_schmidtgall@ipsd.org.  Next year's event takes place on April 18/19.  Thanks for considering!

Student Lockers - Summer & Fall Update:  Locker Update: Warriors, Please don't leave anything behind in your lockers. Empty them out before you leave for the summer as all lockers will be cleaned out.  The school will be closed until mid-July and you won’t be able to get your lost items.  Additionally, regarding the assignment of lockers for next school year… All Freshman Warriors will be assigned a locker to begin the school year. Freshman Lockers are on floor 1 of the building.  Sophomores through Seniors will NOT be assigned a locker at the start the school year. After two days of school attendance, Sophomore through Senior students will have the option of signing up for a locker in the hallway of their choice. Find out where your classes are at and then request a locker in a location that works out best!  Enjoy your summer, Warriors!
