Among the projects in FY18 is first-year implementation of the district’s five year plan to address climate control in school buildings that are not part of the 21st Century School Buildings Plan, are not already scheduled for installation or upgrades to their HVAC systems, and currently do not have air conditioning. The plan calls for installation of either vertical packaged units that address both cooling and heating issues or portable window units, depending on need at each school. In FY18, the seven schools in the plan (listed below) will all received vertical packaged units:
• Baltimore Polytechnic Institute
• Edmondson-Westside High School
• Frederick Douglass High School
• Lakewood Elementary School
• Mergenthaler Vocational-Technical High School
• Reginald F. Lewis High School
Western High School

Please be aware that the WHSAA Executive Board and Committee Chairs are all volunteers.  We need your support in several ways.  We are a very small team (each of us having full time jobs) doing whatever we can to meet the challenges that come with trying to keep our beloved Western alive.  We need your time and your money – no contribution will be considered too small!

Whether we are on high alert or not, there is always a threat that Western may close. Please don’t put off giving your support any longer.  Pass the word about the Alumnae Association onto your classmates or any other Westernite you know, and let them know what they’re missing!  We are indeed everywhere. We do not have an extensive list of Westernites, so we definitely need your help.
