Orville Wright Middle School plans an open house and tour for interested parents and community members at 8:15 a.m. Wednesday, November 30th, in the school’s auditorium, 6550 West 80th St., Westchester.

The tour, billed as “Come See What’s Wright,” will focus on the changes at the school and will offer parents and community members the opportunity to meet with administrators, parents and staff.

“Our principal, Stephen Rochelle, and his staff have made many positive changes both on campus and in academic programs; our test scores have risen every year, for the last three years, under his leadership,” said Chris Kenemuth, a member of the school Booster Club.

During the tour, participants will have the opportunity to visit magnet and community school classrooms, discover various learning communities and enjoy a performance from the school’s award-winning Drama Department.

SNOWBOARDING CAMP — A reminder: As we said last week, registration begins Friday, November 25th, for the West-chester Family YMCA snowboarding camp for sixth-to-12th-graders that will be held from Monday through Friday, December 26th to 30th, at Camp Whittle in Big Bear.

Spaces are limited.

Participants will spend two days on the mountain snowboarding and have one fun-filled day of winter camp activities.

Travel and accommodations will be provided and snowboard rentals will be available.

The cost is $360 for YMCA members and $400 for non-members.

Attendees must also attend an orientation Tuesday, December 20th.
