Westhill Media Center

 

Come meet with the Westhill Counselors as we review with you the college selection process. We will discuss picking the college for your son/daughter, how to write an eye catching essay, and what college admissions officers are looking for in the students they choose. We will also discuss how to maximize your success in being admitted to the right college or university for your son/daughter and offer many other bits of information to make this journey less stressful.

Hope to see you on March 23, 2016, at 6:30 p.m. in the Westhill Media Center.

Sophomore Families welcome as well.

The Annual WESTHILL TALENT SHOW

 will be held on Friday, April 1st 

(kicking off the week of April break) 

at 6pm in the main auditorium. 

Tickets are $5, and available at the door. 

Come out and support our talented students! New this year - a TALENTED STAFF portion!


Hey! I want to be in the Talent Show! Read on...

Talent Show AUDITIONS are NEXT WEEK, directly after school on Monday 3/21, Tuesday 3/22, and Wednesday 3/23 ONLY. 

Auditions are BY APPOINTMENT ONLY. 

To make an audition appointment, please come to room 432 and sign up for your slot TODAY.


We are looking for SINGERS, DANCERS, COMEDIANS, MAGICIANS, BANDS, readers of DRAMATIC MONOLOGUES, reciters of POETRY, and so on! ANY TALENT! Come on out and AUDITION!


Please note:

You must audition by performing whatever you would do in the actual show. As in - there are no "audition pieces." If you audition by singing "Happy Birthday," then that's what you're performing IN THE SHOW if chosen.

We cannot choose everyone to be in the actual Talent Show. There are always more auditioners than there are spots in the show. Rejection happens. Prepare yourself accordingly.

Questions, come by room 432 during

 Periods 1, 3, 6, or 7, or before/after school.
