Fall College Visits at WAHS

For the 22-23 school year, the style of college visits at WAHS has changed a bit. Colleges are requesting their visits through the online platform of Rep Visits.

Students are signing up (in the School Counseling Office) for the school(s) they would like to receive information from. Priority preference is given to seniors, but if space is available, the visits are open to juniors and sophomores.

On the day of the visit (with teacher approval) students come down to the Reference Section of the WAHS Library for the small group meeting with the school's admissions representative.

If you are interested in any of the upcoming schools, please contact your college and career counselor.

Parents and Guardians of 12th Grade Students:

All 12th grade students are required to have a second MCV vaccine (for prevention of Meningitis) on record with the High School. If you have been contacted by the school that means we do not have the information required. Please review this letter and return it to the school nurse as soon as possible.


HOPE Program at the Children's Service Center

We are excited to share information with you about a new program at the Children's Service Center. The HOPE program is designed to provide support and assistance to students and young adults who are experiencing symptoms of psychosis for the first time.

Kids Food Pantry Available in High School

Hello Wallenpaupack,

I proudly announce our "Kids Food Pantry" here in our high school.

Kids Pantry began last November with the idea that we could make the holidays a little special for our students in need. We are still going strong thanks to the extraordinary generosity of private individuals, our amazing staff and teachers, students, our community churches and businesses.

Your donations are always welcome to keep this much needed pantry going.

Please feel free to contact me at [email protected] or at (570) 226-4557 x5242.

The Kids and I Thank You,

Rosemary Musoleno Martynuk
