We will again be collecting coats for kids in Eastern Iowa. We are excited to have the coat drive in conjunction with homecoming week. Coats can be dropped off in the WHS Main Office M-F 7:30 a.m. -3:30 p.m. Coats can be brought to the homecoming football game at Kingston Stadium Fri, Sept 28th. The final count for coats takes place at the game and the winning school will be announced during the 4th quarter. Please feel free to let friends, neighbors, members at your house of worship know about this great opportunity to help those in need.  We look forward to providing coats for kids in need this winter. Note: For those that like the fun and competitive nature of the opportunity for giving, I have changed the challenge from (total # of coats) to (total # of coats/total # of students).  I proposed this in response to concern that they have higher enrollment.  Challenge was accepted.
