Anti-Racism Club Mrs. Riggan, Mr. Smith, Mrs. Jones, Ms. Dresch Welcome Giants! For a few years, we've been known as the Diversity Coalition, but this year we want our name to reflect more clearly exactly what we're about: we want to be active Anti-Racists, and we want to build a school community that is actively anti-racist. For club members, sometimes this means participating in community anti-racist events. Sometimes it means learning together--maybe reading a book, or watching a film, or just talking with each other. Sometimes it means organizing school activities or events. If you want to be part of our effort to combat racism at Waynesboro High School and the larger community, we want you to join us! Sponsors:  Mr. Smith, Mrs. Jones, Mrs. Riggan, Ms. Dresch Our first meeting will be via Zoom on Wednesday, October 7, at 1:30. Let us know you are interested in the survey below, and we will send you a zoom link by email before that day.

In the past, we've been involved in many writing competitions such as the VHSL Creative Writing Contest, The Writer's Eye, This I Believe, and more. Whether you're curious about getting started with creating stories and poems, or are an old hand at it with new ideas to offer your peers, please do join us!

Giant Word/Journalism Club TBD    
Honor Council Mrs. Riggan, Mr. Guertler 
Welcome Giants! Honor Council is a student organization that promotes academic honesty and works to combat cheating at Waynesboro High School. Our activities are organized around three purposes: 1. Education: we visit classes to talk about academic honesty, and hold workshops teaching how to do citations correctly to avoid plagiarism. 2. Peer Counseling: Students who are accused of cheating can avoid severe consequences (one time) by agreeing to meet privately with Honor Council peer counselors (and one teacher) to discuss the accusation, the actions that may have led to it, accountability, and ways and reasons to avoid cheating in the future. If you want to be a peer counselor, we'll give you training! 3. Encouragement: We know that certain times of year are REALLY stressful because of all the high-stakes tests and exams, and we want to encourage students to get through those stressful times by reminding them that their integrity and effort matter, so the club plans activities to share that message. If you want to be part of a WHS community in which honesty and integrity matter and where cheating isn't disregarded as just something "everybody does," then we want you to be part of our our organization. All are welcome, even people who have learned these lessons the hard way in the past! Advisers:  Mrs. Riggan and Mr. Guertler Our first meeting will be via Zoom at 2 pm on Wednesday, October 7. Let us know you are interested in joining us in the survey below, and we will send you a zoom link by email before that day.
