Sixty members of the WAHS chapter of the Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA) attended the 2016 Pennsylvania FBLA State Leadership Conference on April 3-5, 2017, at the Hershey Lodge, Hershey, PA. More than 4,500 advisers, guests, students, and business professionals participated in the 66th Annual State Leadership Conference.

Students competed in a variety of testing and presenting events. These events are derived from projects that meet FBLA-PBL goals and business education program curricula. Some of the competitive performances included Business Plan, 3-D Animation, Electronic Career Portfolio, and Website Design. Other students competed in testing events including Computer Applications, Banking and Financial Systems, and Network Design. To compete nationally, the students needed to place in the top four during the state competition.

At the Awards Ceremony, the National Kidney Foundation, recipient of this year's state project, was given a monetary contribution of over $53,000 to be used toward the organization's programs in Pennsylvania. This year the WAHS FBLA chapter came in third in the state for their fundraising efforts, raising over $3,200 for the state project.

WAHS FBLA raised their funds, with the help of the school community and surrounding community, at their fundraiser "Teacher's Got Talent" talent show held in February 2017.

Notice Regarding Student Insurance - Updated for 2016-2017!

Please be advised that it is the responsibility of the parents/guardians, in the event of a student accident, to provide for accidental injury expenses either through insurance or cash payment to health care providers. For this reason, the School District would like to make you aware of the availability of a low cost, standard school approved insurance policy.

The School District does not provide insurance coverage for students. If you do not have insurance or the financial ability to cover potential injury expenses, we encourage you to review this Student Accident Insurance document.

If you choose to purchase insurance through this program, please have your child return the completed insurance form with your payment to their school and it will be forwarded to the insurance company to process.

We hope this program can be a valuable service for you and your family.
