RE: WHS Report
Last week WHS counselors spent the day at Woodland MS sharing with 8th graders about their elective options in high school. This week, WHS counselors met with 8th graders in small groups to forecast their course taking plans for next year. The forecasting process will begin for our current 9th through 11th graders next week. In the coming weeks, families are encouraged to talk with their high schoolers about next year’s course taking plans and how those plans impact options and plans for the future. The WHS course planner is a valuable resource and can be viewed at this link.
Looking ahead to possible changes
The governor’s announcement of the end of the statewide mask mandate and possible changes to other COVID requirements that may come along with the announcement have the potential to change a lot of things in our school building. We are preparing for the possibility of moving back to a single lunch, replacing and reopening the common learning spaces, and reopening the ceramics room. Other changes might be coming as well. We are also preparing for those staff and students who may feel an extra level of concern as masks come off. None of these changes are guaranteed, of course, but we are making an effort to be proactive.
Anything but a backpack
Woodland High School’s first Tolo dance in two years will be tomorrow evening here on campus. As part of the spirit week runup to this event, students were challenged to carry their things around in “anything but a backpack”. Here are some pictures of the day.
