Alumni Day @ WHS - 12/21/18


Recent WHS Graduates:

We are planning the Second Annual Alumni Day @ WHS on Friday, December 21, with the goal of having recent graduates speak with our current seniors about college/life related topics. Our goal is for you to help the seniors prepare for life after Waldwick High School.
Depending upon the response from the alumni, we would like to start the morning with a panel discussion in the Little Theater, followed-up with breakout sessions on different college/life related topics.

If you would be interested in taking part in the Alumni Day on 12/21, please fill out this form: Alumni Day 2018 by Friday, December 7.
