Sign up for a site will began at 9 p.m. on Tuesday October 11th a first come first serve basis. Provide us with your top 3 choices, regarding sites. We are not considering Westside and central sites until the Eastside sites are taken. We are saving these locations for the lower classmen. In order to sign up, email your top three location choices to WEPolling@gmail.com.
The initial task of education, necessary if it is to be successful, is to wake up those students who have fallen asleep, to make them truly active and concerned, and to ensure that every student feels as if they are masters of their learning, their school, and their life."
