  • “The pandemic can’t stop talent… it just makes us show it off a little differently! This year, we will be compiling a video of all the various talents the students and staff of TWHS want to show off. The video will be shared, the most beloved act will be selected, and a donation will be made in their honor.
    For more information and to sign up, head to your graduating class’s Schoology page or check out a flyer around school! The submission deadline has been extended until Sunday, March 21st.


  • Attention Seniors:  Diploma Presenters for GraduationEvery year, each graduate is given the opportunity to choose a diploma presenter who has been influential in his/her life.  The special person that each senior selects must be a current or former Worthington City Schools employee.  The person you select will be invited to present your diploma to you at Commencement in May 2021.                                                               In order to request the person you would like as your diploma presenter, you must turn in your request using this Diploma Presenter Request Google Form no later than Friday, March 26, 2021.  The form can be found on your class Schoology page and other senior graduation communications.                                    There is NO need to ask the person you are requesting ahead of time.  The diploma presenter coordinator, Mrs. Wilson, will do that for you.  Due to the time and effort involved in inviting these individuals and in organizing this addition to the Commencement ceremony, your cooperation in meeting this deadline is imperative.  If you do not request a guest presenter, a member of the Worthington Board of Education will present your diploma.  Please see Mrs. Wilson, Room 198, or email her at [email protected], with any questions concerning this process
  • March is Women’s History Month. Throughout this month we will highlight some of the various contributions of women around the world. Tammy Duckworth, a U.S. senator currently representing the state of Illinois, has achieved an impressive number of firsts: She was the first Asian-American woman elected to Congress in Illinois, the first woman with a disability to be elected to Congress, the first female double amputee in the Senate ― she lost both her legs while serving as a helicopter pilot in the Iraq War ― the first senator to give birth while in office, and the first member of Congress born in Thailand. In April 2018, Ducksworth’s daughter became the first baby on the chamber floor after her mom fought for a resolution that allows infants into the room. (The measure ensures that new parents serving in the Senate won’t have to miss a vote.) “If I have to vote, and I’m breastfeeding my child, especially during my maternity leave period, what do I do? Leave her sitting outside?” Duckworth asked before the resolution was passed.
