On Wednesday May 22 the sophomore humanities students at whetstone participated in Lobby Day. On this day members of the class presented their service learning projects and “lobbied” members of our community, school board, and local government for a better world.
The projects are on wide variety of issues that require solutions and advocacy. Students chose projects ranging from “Saving the Sea Turtles,” to ending standardized testing.
No matter the issue students advocated for their changes by doing things like making social media accounts on platforms like Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook where they spread their messages and information, calling local representatives, and making efforts to spread awareness of their cause and solutions.
On Thursday November 15 from 3-5 PM the LNI will be in the Whetstone cafeteria. We are looking for 100+ volunteers to help us pack meals for the orphans of Lesotho. Watch this short video to learn more and we hope to see you on Thursday 11/15/18!
Last Wednesday, on november 1st, we had our second senior meeting on this 2017 held by our administrator Mr herzog. He mainly talked about how many students have an A on their grades and how many students have two A’s, three A’s, four, five and six A’s which only 4 students on all seniors have six A’s and just after that he showed how many F’s seniors has which they were a lot almost the same as the A’s.
For the average student, class starts at seven thirty to two thirty,but they’re a fraction of students who only attend half a day usually leaving before lunch.There are a lot of variations as to why. Some students go home, attend college courses, or even a career center. How does this affect the students involved you ask?
On Thursday November 16 2017, Whetstone hosted an event. This event consisted of a factory style assembly line that produced meals made of rice, soy, dehydrated vegetables, and a vitamin B packets. Our original goal was to make 22,000 but our production was so good we went beyond it.
