Basketball Game for ALS Research
On Friday, March 24 (day before break begins), we will be on a one-hour early release schedule in order to have our 1st Annual Students vs Staff basketball game for ALS Research. All students will be dismissed from 10th period to the main gym at 1:05PM to watch our 8 basketball seniors face 10 brave staff members in a rousing game of 5 on 5. Please plan accordingly for that day! 

Scheduling Updates - Action Required!
Scheduling season comes to a close this week with the last step being the parent signature on the Course Verification Form. This form will open in the Parent Portal of PowerSchool on 3/20 and stay open until 3/24. Parents can go in and view what courses their student selected for next year. If teachers had different recommendations for your student, you should've received an email already this week stating the discrepancy. Please know that for CCP classes, students have until Friday to finish their steps otherwise they will be dropped from their CCP classes until the steps are completed. They may be double booked in classes in the meantime, but your student should be able to identify that for you. 

Additional resources: 
  • Many students and parents have also asked about seals. Here is a great FAQ page to help explain them! 
  • Students who want to take classes over the summer (outside of WCS): fill out and be approved for a Credit Flex Application, then purchase and begin the course. 
  • SUMMER SCHOOL INFO Available:  Summer School 2023. If your child has failed a class in the past, it is extremely important that they make up the credit(s) through summer school as open spots in those courses are not guaranteed to fit in their schedule the following year. If your child is in danger of failing a current class, please continue to check Powerschool or reach directly out to your child’s teacher. If your child is looking to work ahead on courses, this process applies to you as well.  Please note, registration deadlines are approaching and some classes fill up quicker than others.  Please register for summer school soon.
