In an effort to better meet the needs of all WHS students, we have incorporated a weekly opportunity for students to meet with teachers to get additional support and/or participate in extension activities such as college and career preparation, guest presentations, and other opportunities to enrich their education.
Here are just a few ways this new Wednesday schedule will better meet our students’ needs:
- Provides a consistent time for students to get additional assistance from their teachers
- Offers opportunities for extension activities
- Homeroom will foster a connection to an adult at school which is known to improve a student’s educational experience and outcome
- Reduces overall classroom disruptions for college prep and guidance counseling activities
- School calendar will be more predictable
- Just one midterm grading day at 9 weeks (Semester 1: November 4, 2016, and Semester 2: April 7, 2017)
Every Wednesday afternoon at 2:10 all students will report to their assigned homeroom. For the first month, all students will attend homeroom where they will engage in many activities such as creating routines for checking Home Access Center and determining where they need to go for help (which teacher/class), reviewing student expectations (student handbook), learn study skills, and other important lessons to support their success in high school.
Freshmen will not be able to opt out of homeroom; they will develop the study skills and self-advocacy habits that will provide a solid foundation for the remainder of their high school experience.
Each year the transition to high school academic expectations is a challenge; our goal is to reduce the number of 9th graders failing one or more classes, and to keep them on track to graduation.
Following the first month of school, 10-12 grade students who are on track for graduation (credits) will be allowed to opt out of homeroom with parent permission to instead participate in extension activities or utilize the time for homework and studying. Transportation on Wednesdays will still arrive at 3:10.
Every Wednesday morning will be a late start (9:05) and there will be an afternoon homeroom/intervention/extension time:
|9:05-10:05||Period 1 (A day)/ 5 (B day)|
|10:05-10:20||Break with Breakfast|
Finally, the first day of school for freshmen only will be September 7th from 10:00-3:10. All students will start on september 8th at 8:00.
If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to email me.
Willamette High School is hosting a week-long summer camp—the Willamette Prep Academy (WPA)—to ease the transition from middle to high school. This is a great opportunity you won’t want to miss because we know that transitioning from middle to high school can be hard. There is more of everything: classes, sports, activities, freedoms, and decisions. The Willamette Prep Academy is an opportunity to meet other incoming 9th graders as well as upperclassmen, get to know Willamette teachers, learn sound decision making skills, and participate in fun team building activities while getting acquainted with Willamette’s campus. After attending camp for one week, as an incoming 9th grader you will feel confident and comfortable when you arrive at Willamette on your first day of school.
