Week of Respect
This week WHS will take part in New Jersey's Week of Respect. We have something going on each day, as well as something special going on behind the scenes for the entire week. Next week I will share with you what Ms. Hused, Mrs. Fortini and I put together, along with the help of a great group of students. Week of Respect 10/5 - 10/9
Upcoming PD (10/7 & 10/14)
This Wednesday we have a scheduled Learning and Collaboration Time and next week we have a minimum day for PD. Please take advantage of the time on Wednesday to create, play, explore something you are using or plan on using in your learning room. You can do a lot in 45 minutes when you focus on a task. Plan what you want to work on.
On Wednesday, 10/14, there will also be a lot of time for you to drive your own learning. Supervisors will be sharing their department topics/goals later this week.
Next Wednesday (10/14) we will be administering the PSAT during the school day. In the past we have run the PSAT's on Saturday, but this year the CollegeBoard mandated that the test be given on a Wednesday. Since Wednesday is a minimum day, we will not be running a delayed opening or modified schedule. Testing will take place in the cafeteria periods 1 through 5-6. The rest of the building will run on a minimum day schedule. We have 180 sophomores and juniors signed up to take the test. Sophomore and junior level courses will be light on the day of testing.
