WHS students enrolled in business classes can earn extra credit by dressing in business attire on specific days as part of the Dress for Success Initiative.

Students enrolled in high school business courses have opportunity to earn extra credit by dressing professionally


High school students enrolled in business courses will have an opportunity to earn extra credit by participating in a bi-monthly dress for success challenge.

Starting November 29, students will have an opportunity twice each month to dress for a professional business setting. Students who are dressed in professional attire for the full day will be awarded 3 extra points on their next test, quiz or assignment in each business class in which they are currently enrolled.

Students who have questions about the new Dress for Success challenge may ask business teachers Mr. Gaddy, Mr. Lindemann and/or
Mrs. Matuszek to share more information during class.
