LETTER FROM WHES PRINCIPAL BRUSCA:
I am delighted to announce that we have officially been selected as a California Distinguished School. This is a prestigious honor that is only awarded to 5% of schools in the state of California each year. It also exemplifies our high academic achievement and the significant gains we have made in narrowing the achievement gap. We were proud to demonstrate two of our many signature practices, which include our Writing Program and Differentiated Instruction. The flag and plaque awarded to us will be dedicated to our generous parents, incredible staff and conscientious students for working diligently every day. It is a great honor that we achieved together and I look forward to displaying the plaque and flag awarded to us this coming June.
Superintendent Deasy has sent his congratulations to our school community in his letter below. Thank you and congratulations to everyone.
