SENIOR DUES

Class of 2017! Welcome to an epic year! Congratulations to all of you for making it this far. Let’s not lose sight now that there is still work to be done. Be mindful of your attendance, check in with your guidance counselors to make sure you’re meeting all graduation requirements, and review this very important information

Westhill offers a “Senior Dues Package” to cover ALL Senior year expenses (except Prom tickets, which will go on sale in late April). This packageeliminates the need to pay for the following items separately – and at greater cost – over the course of an already-hectic year:


Dues are payable now by bringing the completed form AND payment to Mrs. Grant or Ms. Tobin as indicated under item 8 on the form.Dues will ALSO be accepted DURING Open House on Wednesday, October 19. Come to our table in the MEDIA CENTER starting at 6pm until the end of the evening.
