WGHS Principal
Dear High School Families;

It is hard to believe we are already one quarter of the way through the school year. First quarter report cards have been posted to our new Infinite Campus student management system website and we are now three weeks into the second quarter. Since the beginning of the year, students have had the opportunity to use advisory period to get help with course work, attend a club and/or activity meeting or take an Advanced Placement science course.

One goal of the advisory period is for students to seek academic help or to enrich the learning experience. Classroom teachers are available to students either during 5A or 5B advisory periods. Students should communicate their need or desire to meet with their teachers during advisory and obtain a pass. Commonly, teachers will reach out to the students needing additional support and use advisory period to assist their students. Time commitments during advisory and lunch periods are very flexible and allow students to switch lunch periods in order to find a mutual time that works for both the teacher and student.

During the month of November, an Advisory Speaker Series was initiated. The purpose of the series is to provide engaging presentations that are relevant to students’ lives. Information learned can be applied to students academic and/or private lives. Topics include philanthropy, study skills, test taking strategies, dating violence prevention and drug and alcohol awareness. It is also my intention to build student leadership opportunities within this program. Students are encouraged to present topics that are interesting and relevant to their peers. Interested students should see me for more details. Please see the school’s calendar for presentations that will be given during the month of November and during the second semester of the school year.

It is my intention for advisory to contribute to the positive school environment and allow experiences for student growth and academic success. Please encourage your student to take advantage of some of the many opportunities advisory period offers throughout the school year.

Have a wonderful holiday season.
